Freewheel Feature: 2016 Trek Emonda S 4

Few other road bikes offer the same incredible value as the Trek Emonda S4. This bike is perfect for entry and intermediate road riders who refuse to compromise comfort or performance. The frame is crafted from expertly engineered 300 Series OCLV carbon. This means that you can expect an incredibly comfortable ride, however the frame has been beefed up at key points to optimize power transfer and control.Trek Emonda S 4 Road Bike

The bike is sensibly outfitted with Shimano’s Tiagra components. The shift levers feature Shimano STI shifting, so the motions to shift the gears are the same as Shimano’s higher end components. Tiagra’s performance is unmatched at this price point.

The frame geometry is based on Trek’s H2 fit, meaning that the rider is positioned with a less aggressive posture. This means that you can stay comfortable on those longer rides. Visit us at Freewheel, and we will size you up to the right road bike that fits your needs. Don’t forget to bring your helmet, shoes and favourite riding clothes for your test ride (or you may borrow one of our demo helmets).

Freewheel Feature: 2016 Trek Precaliber

The Trek Precaliber series of kids’ bicycles make riding fun! Unlike a lot of children’s bikes out there, Precalibers are real mountain bikes, just scaled down for smaller riders. The frames are made of lightweight and durable aluminum. Keeping the weight down on bikes for kids is really important because the riders themselves don’t weigh much. Your kids are much more likely to enjoy riding if their bike is light and easy to whip around.

Trek kids bikes feature “Dialed” adjustable components. The brake levers can be adjusted for smaller hands, and the cranks have adjustable length. We know it’s hard to fit bikes to growing riders, and these features make it a breeze!

Bring your little ones down to Freewheel for a sizing and a test ride. Ask us about our kids’ bike trade-in program, and get up to 50% of your kids’ bike’s value in store credit to apply to their next bike once they have outgrown it*.
