Trek Domane+
$4,999.00 $7,000.00 29% Off

Remember the first really long rides you did as a teenager?

Do you still ride long distances like that?

You still can.

Trek produced the Domane + for riders wanting to return to that level of achievement and satisfaction. Or just get to work faster. Much faster. Trek's award-winning Domane platform was the basis for their first power-assist road bicycle. The stable handling, long wheelbase and upright fit of the Domane + allow a wider range of riders to get comfortable for long rides over pavement rough and smooth. The IsoSpeed decoupler that soaks up the impact of cobblestones at Paris-Roubaix is equally at home on a power-assist bike, allowing the rider to float over rough and choppy pavement. Room for tires up to 35mm wide permits adventurous riding on light gravel, depending on tire choices.

Trek's outstanding 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber forms the frame of the Domane +, endowing the bike with incredible strength for instant pedaling response and power delivery. That material let the engineers at Trek run wild, producing a bike with innovations everywhere you look. A tapered head tube adds handling precision in every curve and descent. 12mm thru-axles not only make hub installation easier with disc brakes, but also adds to the bike's lateral strength to improve handling. Even the fork is carbon fiber, allowing the design team to bring a more planted feel to the Domane + when tackling high speeds. The Removeable Integrated Battery -or RIB- hides inside the downtube, keeping a clean, sleek look we all want in a performance road bike. Removing the battery for recharging is tool-free, and its placement frees up space for a water bottle right where you expect it to be. There's even a recharging port of the left side of the bike's down tube if you want to charge it "on board". The Bosch battery itself is a 500Wh unit, and can be charged fully in roughly 4 hours from empty. Depending on power assist levels used, the Domane + has an assisted range of up to 70 miles, and a top speed of up to 28mph. Yes, 28mph. It'll make the landscape fly by pretty fast if you want it to! The motor that allows the Domane + to perform like that is Bosch's most powerful Performance Line Speed unit. With up to 350 watts and 63Nm of torque on tap, the Domane + fears no incline, and is ready for rides with the weekend fast group. A bar-mounted Bosch Purion controller with a large LCD display shows the 4 power-assist modes: Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo.

The SRAM drivetrain on the Domane + will feel familiar, with an 11-speed Force 1 dual-control lever covering shifting duties. A medium cage SRAM Force 1 rear derailleur moves the chain across a wide-range 11-36T SRAM cassette with precision. SRAM's Force hydraulic disc brakes help keep speed in check in all conditions, rain or shine. The calipers are installed flat-mount style on the frame and fork for even pad wear and better lever feedback. Bontrager supplies the tubeless-ready alloy Paradigm Disc wheelset on the Domane +, keeping rotating mass low for easier acceleration. Tubeless-ready 700x35c Schwalbe G-One Speed tires feature a shallow tread that improves confidence on dusty roads or low-profile gravel.

Long miles aren't much fun if the bike's touchpoints aren't up to snuff, but Trek has that covered. A Bontrager Arvada Comp saddle boasts deep padding while still offering a classic road-style shape. The Ride Tuned alloy seatmast cap helps make the IsoSpeed decoupler work better than a conventional seatpost. An accessory-ready alloy Bontrager Elite Blendr stem makes phone case installation (sold separately) a snap. Bontrager's alloy Elite IsoZone VR-CF road handlebar comes with a layer of elastomer underneath the bar tape, serving as a last line of defense against road harshness. Everyday convenience has been considered with the Domane + with the addition of fender mounts and a chainstay-mounted kickstand. Road safety has been a recurring theme with many Trek products, and the Domane + shares in that theme with a set of daylight-visible, integrated Lync LED lights. Drawing power off the Bosch battery, the lights help to gain the attention of other road users, improving rider safety.

Those roads and group rides you enjoyed so much in the past? You can still enjoy them with the Domane +.

A Bosch home charger comes with the purchase of this bicycle at no extra cost.

Trek Dual Sport 2 Women's
$700.00

Hybrids like the Dual Sport 2 for women aren't just for rides around the park on Sundays. They're for making meet-ups and meeting goals, on road and off.

There's even a lockout knob to give the bike a more "roadie" feel on pavement.

Shimano's 8-speed shifters and derailleurs allow for lightning-quick shifting at your fingertips. A triple crankset and 11-32T cassette offer a huge gearing range for tackling steep climbs and carrying heavy loads. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes boast excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine.

Trek Emonda SL 5 Women's
$2,100.00

Everyone looking to buy a nice road bike will walk over and actually pick it up, regardless of price. How light is it...really?

They want to know if the bike will help them fly up the hills or drag them back down. The Emonda SL 5 will certainly impress in the low weight department. But there are other elements that will impress...

Lightness is key, but a bike that fits badly, feels rubbery in the corners and clumsy while shifting isn't worth the investment. The Emonda SL 5's tall H2 head tube provides a more upright fit in a given frame size, allowing a wider range of riders to get comfortable. Yeah, we got you covered in the fit department. The 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber used throughout the Emonda SL's frame not only keeps the bike feather-light, but enhances the torsional strength, allowing the bike to feel quick and responsive to every pedal stroke. The aformentioned H2 head tube is tapered, adding an extra dash of razor-sharp precision in tight and twisty turns and descents. The seat post has been replaced with a lighter no-cut Ride Tuned seat mast and cap system that improves ride quality over rough and choppy pavement.

The Emonda SL 5's components are Shimano's latest "R7000" series of their venerable 11-speed 105 parts group. Refinement is found everywhere from shifters to brakes to the crankset. The dual-control levers shift easier than ever, and the lever reach adjustment accomodates smaller hands. The lever hoods are also updated with a better texture that improves grip and hand comfort. The redesigned 50/34T compact crankset mirrors the shape and design of Shimano's pro-level Dura-Ace crankset, giving the Emonda SL 5 a sleek, racy look. Don't be put off by the funky Shadow-style 105 rear derailleur; it shifts better under load and even stays tucked out of the wind. The direct-mount 105 brake calipers offer better lever feedback and improved stopping power as well.

The Emonda SL 5's Bontrager Affinity wheels are tubeless-ready, and are wrapped with 700x25c Bontrager R1 Hard-Case Lite tires for exceptional handling and a smooth ride over rough pavement. Bontrager also supplies the Ajna Comp women's saddle and short-reach Comp VR-S road handlebars. An accessory-ready alloy Elite Blendr stem finishes off this excellent road machine.

You're looking for every performance advantage on fast group rides and races, and you'd rather get the whole package now than make an upgrade to carbon wheels down the line. You also want the free speed of an aerodynamic frame. The tech you get A lightweight and aerodynamic 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame and fork, Bontrager Aeolus Elite 35 carbon wheels, a full Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain, and powerful Ultegra flat-mount disc brakes.

Trek Fuel EX 8 29
$3,149.00 $3,450.00 9% Off

Trek's Fuel EX line has exactly what the rest of the mountain bike world has been chasing: Award-winning performance.

The Fuel EX 8 29 is a rolling technology demonstrator. Everything that Trek does well in mountain bikes, you'll find on the Fuel EX 8. A rugged, super-strong frame built with Trek's hydroformed Alpha Platinum aluminum ensures immediate power delivery and suspension response.

The rear shock itself is an air-adjustable Fox Performance Float EVOL unit with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv 3-position damper.

In case the trail gets a little too gnarly, Trek has your back with a Knock Block steerer stop in the headset.

Trek Fuel EX 8 Women's
$3,149.00 $3,449.00 9% Off

Trek's mountain bike engineers decided there's no such thing as too much grip. The Fuel EX 8 gives you that, plus an outstanding fit!

The Fuel EX 8 WSD was redesigned for 2018 with an eye towards offering as much traction as possible. The tubeless-ready Schwable Nobby Nic Performance tires are now a massive 27.5x2.80", boasting a huge contact patch on the trails. Crumbly surfaces, loose gravel and rock gardens can be attacked with greater confidence. Trek's exclusive Active Braking Pivot -or ABP- rear suspension geometry ensures that the rear tire won't be affected by braking dynamics because the pivot point is the rear thru-axle. This is critical for control, especially when descending a technical trail into a sharp, unforgiving hairpin. The one-piece EVO Link upper suspension link resists torsional stress, allowing the rear shock to operate smoothly. The Full Floater rear shock mount reacts to small trail impacts better, reducing rider fatigue. The Fuel EX 8's handling geometry can be altered by reversing the Mino Link chips found on the EVO Link. When done, the bike's head tube angle can be slackened and the bottom bracket dropped slightly for an even more stable feel on gnarly terrain.

The Fuel EX 8 is built around an Alpha Platinum aluminum frame that keeps overall weight low while retaining plenty of strength to handle rough trails and powerful riders. The frame's fit and design favors female riders better with a shorter standover height and taller head tube. A tapered head tube adds precision to the Fuel EX 8's handling in fast corners, while a PF92 bottom bracket adds flex-free power delivery through the crankset. Clever internal cable routing -known as Control Freak- keeps the bike's cablework out of the dirt while all but eliminating rattle and friction-inducing tight bends. The Straight Shot down tube reduces weight and improves torsional strength further.

The suspension Trek chose for the Fuel EX 8 brings trail-taming control on technical features. The rear air-adjustable Fox Performance Float EVOL shock was tuned with Trek's suspension lab in Southern California along with input from Penske Racing Shocks. The result is a tuneable shock that can react to impacts both large and small, bringing control to a wide range of riding situations. A RE:aktiv 3-position damper allows the rider to tweak the shock adjustment on the fly. Up front, an air-adjustable Fox Rhythm 34 Float suspension fork helps keep the bike where you point it, with 120mm of travel. An adjustable damper knob on the fork crown also allows on-the-fly adjustment. Cool, huh?

The Fuel EX 8's drivetrain is SRAM's latest off-road component breakthrough: 12-speed GX Eagle. That's right, 12 speeds. The need for a front derailler and multiple chainrings are all but eliminated with GX Eagle. A single GX Eagle shift lever and GX Eagle Roller Bearing Clutch rear derailleur do shifting duties, while a 10-50T SRAM cassette and single-ring 32T SRAM Descendant crankset boast a massive gearing range for roller-coaster terrain.

For those massive Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires, SUNringle's tubeless-ready alloy Duroc 40 SL wheels form an excellent partnership. The wide rim keeps the tire's contact profile wide and aggressive, bringing even better grip in fast and twisty singletrack. Helping to keep speed reigned in is a set of SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes.

A Bontrager Drop Line dropper post helps get the Evoke 2 women's saddle out of the way on steep descents with a handlebar-mounted remote lever. An alloy Rhythm Comp stem and headset prevents frame damage in a crash with the aid of a Knock Block headset limiter. That Straight Shot down tube will remain dent-free, even if the rider is a clumsy newbie, thanks to knock Block. An alloy Race Lite handlebar finishes off this amazing off-road challenger.

Up front, a 1-1/8" Cane Creek external-cup headset holds the lightweight Bontrager Race X Lite OCLV 110 carbon fiber fork. The Madone's cables are all externally routed, allowing easy servicing in the field.

The Livestrong Madone bicycles feature real gold leaf panels on the top tube, down tube and seat tube. Lance Armstrong's signature appears across the top tube under the clearcoat. Yellow highlights and custom graphics adorn the bike and many of the components.

Shimano's 10-speed 7800 Dura Ace components are found throughout the bike, including the dual-control levers, both derailleurs, both multi-pivot brake calipers, and the 12-25T cassette. Long service life and precise operation can be expected for years to come from Shimano's best pro-level components. A Bontrager crankset with carbon fiber arms, 53/39T chainrings and matching custom graphics is an impressive centerpiece to the Livestrong Madone. Bontrager Race X Lite alloy wheels also feature custom yellow spokes and carbon fiber hubs, and are wrapped with 700x23mm Bontrager tires.
