Trek Demo in Spokane

Here's a reminder that if you're in or near Spokane, that you should definitely stop by the Trek Demo in Riverside State Park this week.

The Trek crew is setting up near the Bowl & Pitcher on Thursday from 4 - 8 p.m, and Friday from Noon-4. 

I'm pretty excited to try some of the new gear. If you've been reading this blog you probably know that I spent some time in the bike industry. And in fact I spent time in the bike industry working for Trek (among other teams) and that I still ride a Trek. 

But my road bike is four or five years old, and my mountain bike, well even though I still love it, is often referred to with "vintage" as a modifier. 

A dirty, dirty bike

Last summer I spent some time riding in Colorado on the newer full suspension mountain bikes (and was totally impressed), but it will be my first time on one of the new Madones. Word is that they'll have the 6.9 Madone on hand, so perhaps there will be a chance to give the new Dura Ace a try too.

I'm interested to take a spin on the new road bikes. I've heard good things about them, but am looking forward to a nice apples-to-apples comparison. Also, since they're there I'd like to try out the Gary Fisher Superfly 29er. Yes, I know we typically write about road bikes on this blog, but mountain biking is still near and dear to my heart. 

So, more to come, but in the mean time here's a link to more information, maps, details, etc. And please note that the location is in fact at the Bowl & Pitcher, not Nine Mile. Call Two Wheel Transit at 509-747-2231 if you have questions:

  1. My new out of the box Trek Portland's rear wheel came bent/flatspot from being dropped I guess but the box was perfect so what does that tell you?

    Anyways, they sent me a new set of 29'er wheels that are tubeless none the less and I love them.

    I use them for cross and mountain. It's great.
