Black and White

Last month we helped Trek launch there all new Madone line of competition road racing bikes. Well Trek hasn't stopped there. Just days ago Trek released it's new line of entry level performance road bikes and we've got them in stock. Trek took a few hints from it's dealer's that perform custom bike fitting when they designed the new lineup. The all new 2008 Trek 1.2 (pictured top left) fits the riding position almost identically to the 2007 Trek 1000 (pictured top right), but that's where the similarities stop.

The difference between the 2007 and 2008 line is as different as black and white. Like it's Madone big brother, the 1.2 get's a 30mm taller headtube (Performance geometry). What that means to you is a much more comfortable fit while still maintaining a bike the looks sleek and fast. The slightly shorter seattube offers a bit more adjustability and creates a smoother more comfortable ride as well. But don't be fooled by the look, this is not a compact geometry road frame. The 1.2 still comes in a full range of 7 frame sizes so you get the optimum fit desired. At only $770, the Trek 1.2 is bound to grab the attention of riders looking to get into road cycling. Upgrades for 2008 include a new Sora rear derailleur, oversized handlebar and stem. Plus, the 1.2 still comes with Trek's carbon fork and seatpost that decrease high frequency road vibration.

The difference is clear, good position, fast looks!

These bikes plus the NOW 8-Time Tour de France Champion Madone is why a Trek is the bike of choice!
