The new Trek now features a new and improved setup compared to last years model, but is it able to take the top spot ?
Introduced earlier this season, the new Fuel EX 29 gets all of the improvements that were developed for last year’s 26in bike and combines them with the better rollover and stability of bigger wheels.
This means the frame shares many of the same features, including the E2 tapered head tube, press-fit bottom bracket and the ABP suspension design, where the concentric pivot at the rear axle helps keep the rear wheel tracking the ground even when the brake is applied.
It’s a super-stiff frame design, but it’s worth mentioning that the EX7 doesn’t get the 142x12mm dropouts found on the higher specced models. Instead, Trek uses its neat convertible dropout to fit a less expensive 135mm quick-release rear hub.
The bike is available in six sizes, ranging from a compact 15.5in all the way up to a massive 23in, giving the Fuel EX7 the best range of sizes of all the bikes on test.
Our 19.5in test rig came with a shorter-than-expected stem, which complemented the reach perfectly. Hopefully, this marks a shift in direction for Trek and it didn’t simply swap the stem before sending us the bike, as the overall fit and proportions of the Fuel EX7 are right on the money.

Suspension

Trek’s signature suspension configuration is basically a single-pivot swingarm design, where the ABP pivot transforms the seatstays and rocker link into a floating brake mount. The shock also floats between the rocker link and a small forward extension of the chainstays. The advantages of this Full Floater layout are twofold: there’s no shock mount on the front triangle, so it can be made lighter; and it also allows Trek to fine-tune how progressive the suspension is. As if that wasn’t enough suspension wizardry, Trek also uses a custom DRCV Fox rear shock that gives the support of a small volume air spring at the beginning of the stroke, before a larger-volume second chamber opens up halfway through the stroke to make it easier to use the full 120mm of travel.

Components

The triple-ring chainset on the Fuel EX offers a massive spread of gears, but it instantly marks the bike out as being somewhat behind the times, with all of the other bikes in test sporting twin-ring chainsets. There’s no faulting the performance of the Shimano drivetrain though, and we were really impressed by the light lever action, ample stopping power and overall reliability of the Deore brakes.

Performance

Out on the trail, the Trek feels much heavier than the Whyte, even though both bikes are evenly matched on our workshop scales. As such, it feels more solid too.

Straight-line speed on the Trek is impressive thanks to the long wheelbase, and the resulting extra length and stability help offset the highest BB and steepest head angle in test. The bike also pumps really well, allowing you to milk speed from the trail when it’s not possible to pedal.




Verdict

The Trek Fuel EX7 is a solid performer — fit and geometry are both dialled and the spec is reasonable given the high-quality frame.

CYCLING TIPS - Avoid Soreness, Improve Handling, Being Alert and More!

Enhance Your Daily Ride With These Encouraging Instructions





1. To avoid muscle soreness and fatigue, don't hunch your shoulders. Tilt your head every few minutes to stave off tight neck muscles. Better yet: stop to admire the scenery






2. If you don't have a chance to slow for an obstacle such as railroad tracks or a pothole, quickly pull upward on the handlebar to lift your front wheel. You may still damage the rear wheel, or it might suffer a pinch flat, but you'll prevent an impact on the front that could cause a crash.

3. Relax your grip. On smooth, traffic-free pavement, practice draping your hands over the handlebar. This not only will help alleviate muscle tension, but also will reduce the amount of road vibration transmitted to your body.

4. Periodically change hand position. Grasp the drops for descents or high-speed riding and the brake lever hoods for relaxed cruising. On long climbs, hold the top of the bar to sit upright and open your chest for easier breathing. When standing, grasp the hoods lightly and gently rock the bike from side to side in sync with your pedal strokes. But always keep each thumb and a finger closed around the hood or bar to prevent yourself from losing control if you hit an unexpected bump.

5. As your effort becomes harder, increase the force of your breaths rather than the frequency.




6. Stay far enough in the traffic lane to avoid being struck if doors on parked cars suddenly open. You'll likely hear some honks from motorists who don't understand why you won't pull to the right to let them pass— a honk in your ear hurts less than a door in your face.

7. On descents, your bike is much more stable when you're pedaling than when you're coasting.

8. Always ride with your elbows bent and your arms and shoulders relaxed. This prevents fatigue caused by muscle tension. It also allows your arms to absorb shock instead of transmitting it to your body.

9. When riding one-handed for any reason, grip the bar on top, next to the stem. If your hand is farther out - such as on the brake-lever hood - the bike is more likely to veer dangerously should the front wheel hit a rock, bump, or pothole

10. Get more life from your tires by switching them from one wheel to another. The rear wears more than twice as fast as the front, so swapping every 500 miles or so significantly extends their longevity.

11. Break up long rides with a 15-second sprint every 30 minutes or so- adding variety to a monotonous pace is better training, relieves saddle pressure, and stretches and relaxes your body.

12. After you grab your water bottle, don't tilt your head to drink. Tilt the bottle and squeeze the water in. You'll have more control.


13. The key to smooth, reliable, non-damaging gear changes when you're pushing hard is to ease your pedal pressure at the instant you move the shift lever. You need to lighten the load on the chain for about one revolution so it won't balk, crunch, or possibly break. Then hit the power again.


See our previous post on Perfecting your Pedaling HERE!

14. For optimal handling with 20 pounds or more of cargo, put approximately 60 percent of the weight in the rear panniers or on a rack, 35 percent on the front rack or panniers, and 5 percent in a handlebar bag.

15. Two easy and most overlooked ways to improve your bike's performance: Inflate the tires before every ride, and keep the chain lubed.

Trek Slims Madone Road Bikes - Keeps Madone 7-series (Carbon) and the 2-series (Aluminum)

2015 Trek Madone 2.1 - Entry Level Aluminum Road Bike

Trek has limited the 2015 Madone range to the top-end carbon 7-series and aluminium 2-series bikes, giving greater prominence to this entry point to the Madone pedigree. This follows the introduction of the ultra-light Trek Emonda and Trek's continued emphasis on the sportive-friendly Domane.

It has an Alpha 200-series (Trek’s premium alloy) aluminium frame that's based on the carbon Madones. It includes the KVF (Kammtail Virtual Foil) down tube shape – a flatter profile on the back of tube to improve aerodynamics – and internal gear cabling. The frame also has a wide BB86.5 bottom bracket, which houses the bearings inside the bottom top shell, and allows a chunkier down tube and stiffer platform for power transfer. The all-up weight is 8.9kg.

The H2 fit of the 2-series Madones isn’t as racy as the company’s H1 setup – our 54cm sample has a 150mm head tube – but it strikes a nice balance between head-down racing bikes and more upright endurance-focused machines.



The tapered fork also has KVF shaping on the rear of the legs, and is carbon with an alloy steerer. It includes a SpeedTrap module for transmitting speed and distance data to a head unit via a traditional magnet attached to the spoke. There are hidden mudguard mounts behind both the front and rear dropouts.


Last year’s 10-speed Shimano 105 levers with Tiagra cassette are now 105 11-speed (with an 11-28 cassette) 105 derailleurs. There’s no 105 crankset though – instead the Madone 2.1 is specced with a black RS500 chainset (50/34t), which retains Shimano’s older five-bolt set-up.

The Bontrager TLR tubeless-ready wheels have low-profile, rounded rims, and are shod in Bontrager R1 Hard-Case Lite 23mm tires.


You'd expect the aluminium seatpost at this price point, although it may be the first thing to put on your upgrade list. The second being the unbranded dual-pivot brakes. Even with these concessions, the Madone 2.1 could well prove to be a smart choice at this competitive price point – if its frame lives up to its name.

2014 Trek Fuel EX 5 29er Features and Specs

The Light, Fast 2014 Trek Fuel EX 5 29 Sets The Bar For Mountain Bike Versatility

 Other full suspension systems firm up under braking, reducing your control when you need it most. Trek’s patented Active Braking Pivot solves that by keeping your suspension active whether you're on the brakes or off.


Most suspension systems attach the bottom of the shock to a fixed frame mount. That fixed mount can contribute to a harsh ride. We solved that with Full Floater, attaching the shock to two moving linkage points so it can better respond to bumps across a wide variety of terrain. It feels like more travel, but it's not. It's smarter travel.


E2 is the evolution of the traditional 1-1/8" headset to a tapered head tube, fork, and headset system. E2 tapers from a 1.5" lower to a 1-1/8" upper headset to provide more material where it matters most, resulting in a stronger, lighter frame with point-and-shoot control.



EVO Link is Trek’s evolution of the rocker link from the plate-and-bolt style used on most suspension bikes to a one-piece rocker link. This lighter link provides a stronger connection point between the front and rear triangles, creating a stiffer frame for greater control with minimal weight.





Post mounting is the simplest, most efficient way to mount a brake caliper to your bike. Functions great, reduces weight.






A traditional front derailleur attaches to the frame with a band clamp. Our direct-mount front derailleur attaches directly to the frame using a solid, flat interface. This fastening method ensures precise front shifting.

Trek Advances It's Farley Fat Bike for 2015

2015 Trek Farley Fat Bikes


Introduced last season, the Farley is Trek’s foray into the burgeoning fat bike market

For 2015, Trek will offer the Farley in two versions. The Farley 6 has a 2x10 drivetrain and a rigid fork with 135mm spacing and a quick-release axle. The Farley 8 has an 11-speed SRAM X1 drivetrain and comes with the new RockShox Bluto fork.


Bontrager now has tubeless-compatible fat rims and tires for the Farley 

The Jackalope is an 80mm-wide rim with a hybrid single / double wall construction, not unlike the NoTubes’ 29+ Hugo rim. The central channel features a double wall design, while the outer edges of the rim are single-walled. This hybrid design is all about reducing rotating mass. No word on claimed weights for the rim itself, however, a complete wheelset — with a 150mm thru-axle front hub and 177mm quick-release rear hub — is said to weigh 1,330g.

Accompanying the Jackalope is the Hodag, a 26x3.8 tire with a tubeless-ready bead. What’s a Hodag you ask? Well, it’s a mythical creature known only to the state of Wisconsin, where Trek is based. (There seems to be a general theme here between freak animals and freakish bikes.)
The siping on the knobs is said to improve grip in the snow

The Hodag has a 60tpi casing and a claimed weight of 1,244g

Cyclocross Season is Approaching... Are You Ready?


Tips For Making This Cyclocross Season Your Best Ever

Article from Bicycling.com, photos from cxmagazine.com


Start Fresh



Replace cables and housing at the time of tune-up, even if you don’t think it’s necessary. Dirt works its way inside housing lines, making shifting and braking gritty and slow. If you ride in sloppy conditions, ask your shop if it’s possible to fully enclose cables in one uninterrupted length of housing. 



Respect Your Rims



After every race and wet ride, or every 100 miles, clean your rims. For caked-on crud, scrub with soapy water and rinse using a light shower setting. To remove grimy buildup, wipe with a dry rag and rubbing alcohol. If the ride was exceptionally wet, remove wheels and buff brake-pad surfaces with an emery cloth.



Tread Lightly: Set Your Tire Pressure



A general inflation rule: With one thumb across the rear tire, and the palm of your other hand on top of it, push down with your body weight. If your thumb hits the rim, add air until it doesn’t touch. For soft conditions, run your front tire 5 to 7 psi less than the rear. On hardpack, increase both tires by 5 to 10 psi. 



Pick the Right Bar Tape



How much elbow grease you’ll need to clean your bar tape depends on whether you prefer comfort or convenience. Padded tape reduces vibration but stains easily. Tacky tape gets dingy and is less padded, but it’s grippy when wet and cleans up better. Leather tape is pricey, but looks sharp and is easy to clean.



Lube What Moves: Chain and Derailleurs



In addition to your chain, which you should lubricate after every dusty or muddy ride, place a drop of oil on each pivot point on both derailleurs and the contact point between the brake arms and spring (if they’re squeaking or not releasing from the rim). Always apply lube on a clean bike and wipe off excess.

VIDEO | 2015 Trek Boone 5 Disc Specs

The 2015 Boone is Trek's Fastest, Smoothest, Lightest Cross Bike Ever

Competition-Crushing Race Geometry and Trek's exclusive Course-Smoothing IsoSpeed Technology.

Specs Below.
NBXbikes.com

What’s new about Boone?
Boone is an entirely new bike, from the ground up. Trek started with premium 600 Series OCLV carbon, and added the ‘cross specific IsoSpeed decoupler, Ride Tuned seatmast, the World Cup winning geometry of the Crockett, disc and canti options, and 3S chain keeper, all wrapped it in a package so light that it makes most road bikes jealous.

Does Boone share geometry with the Crockett? 
Boone’s geometry is the same as the Crockett, which was developed with input from Katie Compton to create the ultimate CX race geometry. Compared to Cronus, Boone has a lower head tube, longer top tube, steeper seat angle, lower BB, and shortened chainstays. This makes for a more forward, race-oriented riding position.

What makes the IsoSpeed decoupler on Boone ‘cross specific?
Trek re-engineered the location of the decoupler so it’s in line with the seat tube, versus in front of the seat tube as it is on the Domane. This allowed them to make the top tube taller, for easier and more comfortable shouldering when you hit the run-ups.

What brake options are available?
Just as with Crockett, Boone will be available in both disc and canti models.

What spacing is the disc version?
The disc version uses a 135mm rear wheel spacing. The cantilever version keeps the 130mm spacing.

Colors
Onyx Carbon/True Blue/Trek White

New Law Requires Drivers to Give 3 Feet of Distance on The Road

Three Feet for Safety - 8

Safer Driving and Riding For All

 
(article from http://www.scpr.org)
Cyclists and California Highway Patrol officers demonstrate what three feet between cars and bikes looks like. Starting September 16, drivers must give cyclists at least three feet of clearance.

A new law takes effect in California Tuesday: Drivers must give bicyclists three feet as they pass them on the road.

"Prior to this law, there was no clearly defined safe passing distance," says Colin Bogart from the LA County Bicycle Coalition.

But most people don't hold a yard stick out their passenger side window. So, what's three feet anyway?

"I think people have a good sense of what three feet looks like without realizing it," says Bogart.

One way to think about it is if a biker can reach out his or her arm and touch your vehicle, you're probably closer than three feet.

Here's how the law works:
  • The law applies to any place a vehicle passes a bicyclist, regardless of whether there's a bike lane in the road.
  • A law enforcement officer must witness a violation to issue a fine. Bystanders' accounts or video recordings made by the bicyclist — on a GoPro, for example — aren't admissible.
  • Violators face at least a $35 fine, and a $220 fine if a collision occurs. Both can increase when court fees are added.
  • There is one exception to the new law: If there's not enough room for a driver to give three feet of space. In that case, they must first slow down before safely passing.
Here are a few more examples of laws, some specific to LA County, that Bogart says more people should be aware of:
  • Bikers must obey traffic signs and signals like every other vehicle.
  • Many cities have different rules. Biking on the sidewalks in Los Angeles is permitted, for example, but cross into the cities of Beverly Hills or Santa Monica and it's illegal. 
  • You can wear earphones or headphones, but must have one ear open to traffic at all times.
  • Riding while talking on a cell phone is permitted.
  • If you're a driver and need to make a right turn on a road with a bike lane, safely cross into the right turn lane if there is one. Otherwise, merge into the bike lane before the intersection. Never turn across lanes.
For more info on bicycle safety, the California DMV publishes its own guide and the California Bike Coalition has a list of rules that apply across the state.

2015 Trek Slash Review and Pictures

2015 Trek Slash - Now Trek is Just Showing Off

(Article and Pictures from mtbr.com)

Trek Slash 99 Side

Trek impressed us this year with the Slash all mountain bike sporting 27.5 wheels and 160mm of travel. Although the bike was meant for the most demanding World Series Enduro races, we enjoyed the big sweet spot of the bike as it excelled in many types of riding conditions. The adjustable geometry with Mino Link enabled us to lower/raise the BB height and affect the head angle as well.

The Fox Talas fork with 130/160mm of travel allowed the bike to tackle flattish, tight singletrack too as the 66 degree head angle could be steepened to about 68 degrees.

But we were left to wonder about the possibilities of a carbon frame, a Pike fork or those new Talas 36 forks. What if?

Well our questions have been answered as Trek showed us the five new 2015 Slash models. The 9.8 has a carbon front triangle and it weighs one lb. less than aluminum. The 9.9 has an all carbon frame for a 1.4 lb. weight savings over aluminum. Two of them are carbon and two are aluminum.

Trek Slash 9.9 Rear Triangle

A big shift is all the models now sport a RockShox Monarch Plus DebonAir rear shock instead of the Fox DRCV shock. RockShox has made huge strides in its rear shock development and Trek felt comfortable that switching to these new shocks would improve their bike. The main improvement is the Monarch Plus has an external oil reservoir and with higher oil volume, more consistent performance can be achieved on the longest and most demanding descents. In addition, the new RockShox shocks offer excellent damping support in its sagged position. Thus even in the wide open mode, the shock is an efficient pedaler with great control throughout its travel. The spring rates of these increased air volume DebonAir cans, mimic the ones of the twin chamber Fox DRCV units as well. So the bike’s ride characteristics are maintained.

27.5 wheels mated with XR4 tires give these bikes excellent traction on a broad range of conditions. The lower three bikes sport Bontrager wheels, while the 9.9 model is spec’d with DT Spline One wheels. All the bikes use RockShox Pike forks with adjustable travel, except for the 9.9, which uses the fascinating new Fox 36 Talas fork with 130/160mm travel.



Trek Slash 9.9 Crank

The 9.9 model features a Shimano 1×11 drivetrain. Early reports are the chain stays on very well with no chain guide.

Trek Slash 9.8 Side

The 9.8 model retails for $5769 and it sports a carbon front triangle and 1×11 drivetrain

The 9.8 is a looker and a decent value.
