A bike with lower gearing will be easier to ride up steep hills, while a higher top end means it will pedal faster down hills.

With Lance and his legion not taking up all their time, Trek's mountain bike division seems to have come alive this year and even the long-running 8000 disc gets a whole new lease of life for 2007.

- USER REVIEWS
The main strenght: - Women Specific Design - I love the frame geometry. The top tube gives nice clearance and make it really easy to get on it. Trek 8000 WSD fits its purpose, it works for women.
SIZE. That is the problem. Women doesn't come in only 3 sizes. Maybe I am just complaining because I am one of those picky people that can't be measured by extra-small, small or medium - I need the *RIGHT* fit, not the "oh, ok, thats kinda close". And the reason I need the right fit isn't because I am some sort of professional rider or anything like that (I am not). The reason that I need the right fit is because Im one of those people that would rather stay at home playing on the internet if "it's windy", if "it's cold" or if "it's too hot" and other excuses... I don't like pain. I don't like a saddle that hurts my butt. But I like going down that trail fast, that wind blowing on my face and the bugs splashing on my forehead -well, maybe not that last one - feeling that bumpy dirt road making my shox work, and watch little birds, or an old man fishing with a bucket, or just the blue sky above me. That's right - I don't ride for the exercise (even though I end up getting it at the end without realizing). So it has to be extra-confortable and light and nice and perfect. Maybe I am just asking too much, but this is my review anyway ;-P I am 5'2 and (listening to some expert dude - my husband) I got the X-small one. My size is right in between X-small and Small. They said "Better to get a smaller one that the one that is too big". As a result, I had my saddle as high as it gets (I had to get a different seatpoast) and as back as it gets. Bike is kinda heavy but that's not so hard to fix.
Women doesn't come in only 3 sizes. If you happened to fit exactly on their size chart, lucky you, go for it - it has OK components (not great, but decent ones) and rides smooth. The front shox is NICE, but if you're light weighted (100 lbs) you might want to change the springs on it. I got it free from the manufacturer, Rock Shox, in 3/4 days. If you're in between you will probably end up having to change a lot of it to get a confortable fit. I don't like mine very much now because it doesn't have much adaptability, my seatpost had to be really long and high, I am stuck with it, can't find a better one. But I still stick to Trek as the best bicycle I had ridden so far - and that is all thanks to the WSD. Just wish they could make one that fit me right instead of "thats really close"!!!
I bought this bike as a gift for my wife. Unfortunately, the standover clearance of the smallest WSD frame is higher than the comparable men's frame and my wife had no clearance. I guess this is logical, because if you shorten the top tube, it rises faster and therefore has less clearance at midpoint. Had it not been for the lousy standover clearance, the geometry of this bike would have been perfect. Trek still needs to do there homework for ladies 5 feet tall or less!
The WSD fit. I like that this bike was designed with a woman's frame in mind. Back in the days (pre-WSD) I had to saw down my handle bars and modify most of the bike to fit me. Also, it's powerfully fast on the downhill!
Nothing really. Although, I don't know if a lot of people know that the cool Rolf Satellite rims are slight heavier than a standard 32 spoke rim. Can't really tell but they are.
Great bike off the floor. Don't really have to do a lot of modifications since it already has good parts. I love the fact that it's comfortable to ride as soon as you get it, keeping in mind that your already have clipless shoes and are used to riding that way.

Frame geometry-fit was very good;turning the stem upside down made it perfect! Mine came spec'd with 170 mm cranks-felt good. Shifting was like butter-super smooth and quiet(Perhaps more the mechanicat the shop?) got mistaken for a bicycle cop re-paint job. Great tires-Revolt RS2's. Manitou shocks a BIG plus.
The saddle! Thinking that this bike would be used ror x-countrying, coming off behind the saddle, it was TOO WIDE! It is possible to get women-friendly, technical riding-friendly saddle. I've since switched to Avocet O2. HATED the feel of the shortie-brake levers-they felt cheap and flimsy-upgraded to XTR right away. Bontrager grips wore out in a big hurry. I also had a mysterious creak-it wound up being one shoe on the pedal. WD 40 on the cleat fixed that.
I've done lots of tinkering since I bought the bike-it came with Icon cranks, stem, bar, pedals; LX front, XT rear derailleur. Got RACEFACE cranks/ chainrings that feel incredibly stiff and efficient. Would still recommend the 8000 WSD off the floor; it was (and is) a very good bike that addressed my geometry problems(5'2"-but long legs for my height)and is light and nimble on the trails. Hugs the trail on uphills very well. I've looked at the 2000, 2001 models-TRek seems to have cheaped out on some components, upgraded on others-Mavic wheels+, tires-, etc.
Tried Iron Horse, Specialized, Gary Fisher, plus *mens*8000.
This is an updated review. I bought this bike over a year ago. I still like the bike very well. Fits very well and have been very comfortable on it.
The RE-1 pedals. They were very inconsistent. Had problems getting into them in mud and had inconsistent releases no matter the weather. Even after throughly cleaning and relubing the incosistent releases didn't go away. Also now have a creak that I haven't been able to localize yet. Think it is from seat post. Also am having a bit of a problem with shifting. Shifts pretty rough.
I would still recommend this bike. I have ridden many miles on it and have been very comfortable on it. The frame fits very well. The parts are still good for the price but my next upgrade will probably be the front derailler/crank. I already swapped out the pedals.
a great fit and comfy too
a little heavy
finally my puss-y is happy, thanks guys!
voodoo cannondale schwinn
short top tube, Womens specific geometry
stem supplied was too long. 175mm cranks on a 13 frame??? Stock springs on fork too stiff.
The overall handling of the bike is very good. I cant understand why Trek would supply a 13.5 frame with 175mm cranks. The Judy 2000 works well, but came with the stock set up for a 140-170# rider. Replacement springs arent available yet. 5 chilis for construction, ride, minus one for component choices.
Fantastic bike to own if vertically challenged - 5'. Geometry fits perfectly. Very light-weight. Handles off-road terrain superbly. I spent a month and a half trying to find a bike to fit and this was the only one I was happy with in every respect. A real looker too. Thanks to Trek for making this model, otherwise I would have 1) unhappily have gone for something sub-standard, or 2) refrained from getting a new MTB full stop.
Excellent components, WSD frame fits my 5'2 frame perfectly, looks cool
I can climb like a mountain goat now
Nice to see more womens specific offerings.
Womens design does not fit all women.There is no universal womens build.Did not shift that well. I talked to some friends and they said the Trek does not use a Shimano crank which is the problem.
Buy it if it fits you and you like the ride. I thought it was harsh and not as smooth riding as my Schwinn Moab. My old steel specialized even road better.

USED - 1987 TREK 8000 : 20.5" : WHITE/BLUE FADE Condition USED Bike will be partially dis-assembled if shipping is requested. Rare! Although this is not the ultra rare WTB team model, these Trek 8000's don't exactly come through the shop every day. Frame and fork show the usual signs of wear, scuffing and paint chips. Noteworthy paint chips on chainstays and seatstay bridge. Other scuffing on brake levers. This bike is exceptionally clean for its age and has many of the OG spec parts. We've updated the bike with new tires, tubes, grips and shift cables/housing. The OG Deore shifters have been revived and shift great. Would make a great display piece or a retro trail ripper. Tuned up and ready to go. Pictures are of the actual bike, see photos for details.
