Trek Crockett Review
When we took a look at the Trek Crockett, we enjoyed feeling the proprietary aluminum alloy that the company used when building it. A full carbon fork is attached to the head tube, along with a very nice bottom bracket that stands up to the test of time pretty well.
In addition to this, there are disc brakes that provide the stopping power one needs on a racing model, along with plenty of mud clearance. We did notice that the wheelbase was a bit bigger than normal, at 1m or more, and allowed us to have a lot of stability as we went down slopes at speed.
In addition to this stability, responsiveness was also at a high, as we were able to take sharp turns on some pretty slippery roads with ease. While the bike doesn’t really stand out in the way you would think, this is a solid all-rounder that is capable of keeping up with the very best wherever it goes.
- Great frame material and design
- Carbon fork with lots of clearance
- Long wheelbase for more stability
- Very responsive ride

The Trek Crockett is a little like Davey Crockett – a solid, reliable champion who will always doggedly win no matter what – and this is a good thing!
We didn’t have any complaints when using the Trek Crockett save one – for a bike with such an impeccable track record of winning, it could have been visually improved a lot more. However, the actual ride was really lovely and it is definitely a bike we would recommend.
