Product Details

2013 Trek Mt. Track 220

Trek's Mt. Track 220 is a sturdy ride well equipped to please both parents and child. They'll love the nimble, fun ride, cool looks, great graphics, knobby tires and suspension fork. You'll be glad it's made with durable aluminum, choice components and that it's professionally assembled. Plus, the twist shifters and 21-speed Shimano drivetrain make it easy for your young mountain biker to climb higher and ride farther, while the linear-pull brakes provide excellent stopping power and safety.

    Comments:

    I was told when i bought this bike that it is easy to upgrade but now that it needs upgrading they are telling me that it is very hard as the sizes of components used are not standard. My son has used this bike in our yard and on road and gravel for 6 months and was really good. We have now switched to smooth singletrack and the bike is falling apart. The shock no longer will move through its travel. The cassette is wobbling and will need replacing, the other major problem is no matter how tight you make the stem the handlebars will spin. Im told there is no easy or cheap fix for this. So i would say this is a great bike for non aggressive riding on pavement and dirt roads not much more. So much for it being a mountain bike.

    Comments:

    My son (almost 8) was looking too big for his Jet 20 even at max seat height so it was time for an upgrade. I scouted the MT220 during the Trek Fest sale and decided to bring my son to have a look. We both appreciated the look of the bike and I liked the alum. frame. It comes in green/blue or black w/blue & white. Both looked excellent and it was a tough call but my boy chose the black one. The bike, at first glance, has a neat feature allowing you to place the pedals at one of two pre-drilled spots on the cranks. Seems like a brilliant idea only with my son, moving the pedals to the shorter setting left him with too much knee bend since he needed close to min. seat height in order to tiptoe at a stop. If a kid can reach the ground at min seat height, they're going to want the pedals on the end of the cranks for comfortable/efficient use so the only use I see for the other pedal position would be if training wheels were used which really would be a shame on this bicycle. In other words, the option of two pedal positions appears somewhat useless in practice. I also wasn't crazy about the front fork because I think that a quality rigid bike is better than a bunch of unnecessary bells and whistles which only add weight. Trek does offer the less expensive MT200 for those in that camp but it looks dull in comparison with a drab paint scheme. Anyway, since it was on sale, we went with the MT220 for a few bucks more and my son loves it which is the most important thing. While it costs roughly twice as much, the 2015 MT220 is better than your average 24" mart bike for sure. In the end though, I'm not sure that Trek stands head and shoulders above the competition anymore- at least in terms of kids bikes. The gap seems to be closing somewhat not so much because other bikes are getting better but sadly because that "Oh this is much nicer" feeling you used to get at the local bike shop seems to be diminishing in this case. Aside from the clearly better frame, everything else on it from shocks to shifters screams slightly above avg. mart bike. I've still got a Trek 850 from the late 90's and they truly don't make them like they used to. 3.5 stars which get rounded up to 4 based on Trek's rating system.

    Bought 2 of these bikes. One for my 8 year old. And one for my 6-1/2 year old (tall for his age). Both benefitted from the low gearing for climbs. I would love if the front shock could be adjusted as it seems too stiff for them. They both love the bikes.

        Went on a family ride and noticed my growth spurting 8 year old totally outgrew his Trek Jet 20 bike. Went to the bike store and my son loved the lime green version of this bike. Went for a ride on the street and light trail riding. Son loved it, fast, handles well, and brakes nicely. Very impressed by the two threaded holes on each crank arm that will allow additional pedal length sizing adjustments. Nice aluminum frame also. You may finder a cheaper bike at a "big box" store but it will not be half the bike this one is. Worth the extra for a bike that is going to work and last.

        Expected more out of a near $400 Trek

        Comments:

        Understandably, you won't get a lot of decent components in a chinese built kids bike, but for nearly $400 I would expect a few good parts. The shifters are OK and the front and rear mechs operate fairly smoothly, The front fork is just for looks and it basically just a bounce spring - it may be enough for some light hits, but I worry about my kid thinking that he can take on serious off-road conditions. The tires are of a pattern that allows the bike to easily traverse from road to dirt and back while maintaining good grip off-road without too much extra pedaling effort on pavement. Don't expect to replace the tires once worn with Bontrager OEM's as they are very expensive compared to other brands. Seat and pedal adjustments are easy, but forget about even touching the brake lever adjuster screws as even when fully turned in, the levers barely move from their stock position. The 2009 MT-220 that I picked up last week had the same issue, but worse. Speaking of the 2009 - It seems to be much better quality than the new 2014 model. Everything (except the lever issue), is much beefier. While the '09 is solid everywhere - the 2014 has a front wheel that does not run straight and a wobbling rear freewheel right off the showroom floor. This is something I have not seen even on my kids cheap $60 Generic-Mart bikes. My kids beat up old 24" Fisher Pro-Caliber doesn't do it, and neither does the used 2009 MT-220. The dealer says that it's normal, but I am more than hesitant to buy Trek again, because (as an automotive engineer), I can't believe that a freewheel or cassette would move about like a worn out part. Maybe it's normal, but not on the several older USA made Treks that I still own. Sad.
