    I'm looking for TREK 4400 review websites.

    I want to upgrade some components, and I would like some advice.

    TIA

    Is there anything actually wrong with what's on there at the moment? If not, then why upgrade?

    If there is something wrong with a specific part (InSync forks, maybe?), then why not start with the
    bits that you don't like?

    Yes, probably the seat and maybe the InSync fork. Also, after some use, the chain started to
    make strange noises, because of disadjustment of the shifting group. This after normal ridings,
    not too hard.

    Also, I would like to know if there is an advantage changing to tubeless (less punches).

    I would like to see an user review of this bike.

    thanks

    Is the saddle uncomfortable?

    Cable stretch. Learn to adjust your gears: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/derailer-adjustment.html

    Changing to tubeless would be way down on my list (and is, in fact, way down on my list :)

    Do you get lots of punctures? If so, try pumping your tyres up to a higher pressure (~45 psi).

    Once I got 6 holes at a time. Will try more pressure. Thanks.

    Tubeless won't help you with puncture flats. If anything, it'll make it worse for you - it's easier
    to patch a tube than a tire, and tubes are much cheaper than UST tires.

    I don't use it, but everybody who's ever used Stan's sealing system raves about it. That could be
    your answer for numerous puncture flats...http://www.notubes.com/pages/about.htm
