Trek Introduces Smart Wheel Size

Trek Introduces Smart Wheel Size Mountain Bikes

A new smart approach to wheel size on mountain bikes has arrived from Trek Bikes. With the emergence of the global 27.5 wheel size bike market, there is more confusion today than ever surrounding mountain bike wheel size. Trek is introducing a strategy that will end the wheel size debate on hardtails, making it easier for riders to choose,

Smart Wheel Size acknowledges that one wheel size does not fit all. Yet, a bigger wheel is a faster wheel. So, ride the fastest wheel that fits.

For all riders challenged to fit on fast 29” wheels, Trek’s new Marlin and X-Caliber 13.5” and 15.5” hardtails are designed around 27.5” wheels. Bikes sized 17.5” and up models will offer the speed and efficiency of 29” wheels. Smart Wheel Size is a simple sizing strategy that places riders on the fastest wheel that fits and kills the wheel size confusion. 

Talk to our friendly staff at Pro Cycles Caloundra, and ask about the new Trek Wheel Size options to see which best suits your riding.

Vacansoleil-DCM Bianchi Oltre XR

Check out the new Bianchi Oltre XR of Pro Willem Wauters.  

Just 23 years old, neo-pro Belgian Willem Wauters moved up after two years as an espoir to represent Vacansoleil-DCM at the Santos Tour Down Under. Wauters finished mid-pack in 81st position but his team nabbed the second spot in the teams classification, all with the help of Bianchi's revamped Oltre XR.

 

There's little to differentiate the new Oltre XR from the previous one visually, but updates in carbon fiber materials and lay-up schedules dropped 30g and boosted rigidity by 20 percent, according to Bianchi. Otherwise, the sleek shape carries over including its tapered 1 1/8-to-1 1/2in front end, BB30 bottom bracket, sleek deep-section telescoping carbon fiber seatpost, and the uniquely stepped seat stay profile that starts out spindly at the two-piece aluminum dropouts but morphs into a rather burly looking wishbone.

According to our friends at Competitive Cyclist, a bare 55cm frame (Wauters rides a 57cm) is just under 900g.

UCI scraps Armstrong doping investigation

UCI scraps Armstrong doping investigation

 

The International Cycling Union has disbanded the independent commission set up to investigate the Lance Armstrong doping scandal in favour of a truth and reconciliation commission.

The independent inquiry, launched in the wake of the USADA investigation that led to Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after orchestrating "the most sophisticated, professionalised and successful doping programme that sport has ever seen", was shelved after both the world and US anti-doping agencies refused to co-operate.

UCI president Pat McQuaid described the truth and reconciliation commission as "the best way to examine the culture of doping in cycling in the past and to clear the air so that cycling can move forward," adding that WADA president John Fahey had played a key role in the change of approach.

"Fahey confirmed WADA's willingness to help the UCI establish a truth and reconciliation commission (TRC), as well as saying that WADA had no confidence in the existing independent commission process," McQuaid said.

"We will now focus our efforts on establishing a TRC with which we expect WADA to be fully engaged, to look at doping in professional cycling, as well as the allegations contained in the USADA reasoned decision."

USADA's investigation into the doping culture on the US Postal Service team between 1998 and 2005 also raised questions about the UCI's inability to catch and expose Armstrong.

But the anti-doping authorities' decision to not co-operate with the UCI's three-person commission, which included Paralympic champion Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, led the cycling federation to conclude that the resulting report would "not be complete or credible".

After the commission was adjourned last week, Baroness Grey-Thompson told UCI counsel Ian Mill: "It amazes me that we've had no documents whatsoever."

The UCI's truth and reconciliation process, offering amnesties to riders in return for evidence, will launch later this year with its findings to be published in full.

But USADA chief Travis Tygart, who believes Armstrong had influence over the UCI that protected him from being exposed as a doper, remains highly sceptical about the ability of a UCI-led investigation to get to the bottom of allegations against the federation itself.

"We support a well-structured truth and reconciliation process but the UCI cannot be allowed to script its own self-interested outcome in this effort," Tygart said.

"The UCI blindfolded and handcuffed its independent commission and now hopes the world will look the other way while the UCI attempts to insert itself into the investigation into the role it played in allowing the doping culture to flourish."

 


 

 

Trek Madone Rated by Ride Australia

Trek Madone 7.9 Rated By Ride Australia

Ride Magazine Australia recently test rode the 2013 Trek madone 7.9. Check out below what their thoughts on this new amazing bike were !

 

When Trek Australia lent us a pair of matching 2013 Madone 7.9 bikes for the day, before their launch locally to dealers and press, I knew there must be a good reason… Simply they knew how good this latest version is and couldn’t keep it to themselves any longer!

The new Madone redefines what a modern race bike can be. Both lightweight and designed to minimise aerodynamic drag, the Madone 7 Series doesn’t give up any of the joyous ride quality of previous incarnations to achieve its new objectives.

If you can get past the fact that the rear brake is in a different position to the norm (under the bottom bracket), you will quickly appreciate the ‘naked’ rear stays and the fact that braking performance is unchanged. Stiff but not dead feeling, smooth, lively and above all fun, the new Madone gives me hope that the major players in this industry are truly full of people who go to work everyday with the goal of making the best bikes possible.

Get to a Trek ‘demo day’ and find out for yourself
