The aluminum Trek Superfly 6 and Superfly 7 are two of the Trek bicycles that came up when we asked our staff their favorite mountain bike recommendations.
Trek’s Superfly series are Gary Fisher inspired hardtail mountain bikes, designed for speed, and available in both aluminum and carbon frames. The Superfly 6 ($1789) features an SRAM X7/X9 2×10 drive train, while the Superfly 7 ($1899) goes with Shimano XT. Both models feature Shimano hydralic disc brakes.
Based on Trek’s Smart Wheel philosphy, the 15.5″ frame size is uses on 27.5″ wheels, and all other sizes are 29er.
What our staff says about the the Superfly 6 and 7:
Another great value bike. RS Reba and a great component spec (Superfly6). – Chip – Floor Lead – Greenwood
Lightweight Al 29er frame with a nice parts spec (Superfly 6). Great mid level price bike for getting into mountain biking without going full-suspension. – Adam- Sales Consultant, North-82nd Street
