Powerful Trail Ready Mountain Bike: the 2013 Trek 4900 Disc at Scheller's Fitness and Cycling!

As a cyclist, and specifically a mountain rider, you know that words can only do so much to describe an amazing bike. The only way to truly know how the bike feels is to ride it around a little and experience it for yourself. We encourage you to come to Scheller's Fitness and Cycling to check out and test ride the 2013 Trek 4900 Disc! Trek's 4 series bikes are modeled after their XC bikes, using an oversized stem and handlebar to increase stiffness, give confidence, and handle precisely.

It's shock absorbing front suspension fork allows the front wheel to travel up and down over bumps while the handlebars remain steady for a comfortable, controlled ride. This is just a part of the reason that the 4900 Disc has Trek's Trail Ready Certification, which means that the frame has passed strict tests regarding durability and impact standards. It is more than ready to handle the rigors of real off-road riding.

Probably the best feature on this bike are the handlebar-mounted controls that let you lock out your suspension on the fly, without having to move your hands from the handlebars. As the terrain changes, you'll be ready at the flip of a switch. The disc brakes (indicated by the "D" in the model name) offer the absolute strongest stopping power in all conditions, including wet and muddy.

Once again, it's important that you see and ride this bike for yourself to make the best decision. You can come to any one of our five locations. We have two in Lexington, two in Louisville, and one in Clarksville. You can reach us at (812) 288-6100 or visit our website at www.schellers.com

We'll be waiting for you!

A Full Suspension 29er Mountain Bike For Women? Yes, It's the 2013 Trek Lush 29er SL

The 2013 Trek Lush 29er SL is a brand new bike for 2013 and it fits women of all sizes. It utilizes sophisticated tube shapes made out of their Alpha Platinum aluminum to find the greatest combination of strength and weight for today's women cyclists.

29" wheels are one of the features which allow for better traction by increasing the contact area of the wheel to the ground. The sheer size of the 29" wheels aid in helping the rider pass over rocks and stumps they would undoubtedly encounter while on the trail.

Trek has really gone out of their way to make their WSD (Women's Specific Design) bikes an awesome fit for women. Trek knows that a great-fitting bike is a joy to ride. The better the fit, the greater the comfort, stability, power and control. The WSD 29er geometry is designed to offer best-in-class standover, low hand position, and a low center of gravity for responsive handling, ultimate control, and unbeatable comfort.

The Lush also comes equipped with a Magnesium EVO Link that connects the main frame to the rear triangle with a one-piece rocker link. The main benefit of this link is that it acts as a mini-shock, absorbing some of the smaller bumps in the road.

Women who are serious about mountain biking should seriously consider picking up the Lush 29er SL. We have this bike, as well as the rest of Trek's awesome collection of bikes at Scheller's Fitness and Cycling. We have five great locations to serve you best: two in Lexington, two in Louisville, and one in Clarksville. If you come to one of our stores, we'd be happy to get you on a test ride of the 2013 Lush 29er SL, or any other bike that catches your eye. Come by today or call (812) 288-6100.

The 2013 Trek Madone 2 Series Available for Test Rides at Schellers Fitness and Cycling

For years, the Trek Madone was a leading carbon fiber road racer used by local riders as well as Lance Armstrong.  The light weight and advanced design of the Madone carbon frame gave cyclists a big performance edge over others not as lucky to be riding this bike.  Trek has recognized the need to bring the design of the Madone down to a lower price point so for 2013, Trek is introducing two Madone models in aluminum.  The Madone 2.1 and 2.3 deliver a lot of the benefits of their carbon big brother but at half the price.

Equipped with a carbon fork and seat post and Shimano 105 10 speed components the Madone 2 series is perfect for racing, triathlons, weekend group rides or that early Saturday morning ride by yourself where you just want to see where the road takes you.

With five locations in the Lexington, Louisville, and Clarksville, we invite you to come in and check out the 2013 Madone.  If you have questions, please give us a call.

Back to school bike fittings at Schellers (Lexington, Clarksville, Louisville)

Start your kid's school year off right with a bike fitting!
If your child is riding a small bike, they may find it tiring and uncomfortable to ride. A too large bike can be dangerous, as your child will not have proper control of it.
Our bike shops (Lexington, Louisville, Clarksville) measure bikes to fit the proportions of the rider, and can make adjustments to any part of your bike for better fit, improving your bike's performance and your riding experience.
Every style of bike has different fit guidelines.
Kids’ bikes sizes are based on the wheel size. You can find size using general age guidelines, but it is the child's size, rather than their age, that will determine what size bike they need.
Wheel sizes according to approximate age of child:
14" will fit approx. 4-6 year old
16"- 5-8 year old
18-20"- 7-10-year old
24"- 10 and older

Go anywhere with the 2013 Trek DS 8.4 at Scheller's shops in Louisville, Lexington, and Clarksville

One of the most exciting 2013 bikes Scheller's already has in stock at our five bike shops in Louisville, Lexington, and Clarksville IN is the Trek Dual Sport. Trek Dual Sport delivers precisely what the name suggests- outstanding performance on the road and on the trail. With its upright handle bars and front suspension fork, the bike is also built for comfort on a longer touring or cross country ride. The aluminum frame reduces weight to the minimum possible on a bike in this price range by using hydro forming instead of traditional round tubes.  By changing the shape where necessary, the Gary Fisher designed frame can be wide where necessary for strength, aerodynamically shaped where possible, and narrow and light where weight is the only consideration. 
The DS comes with 27 gears. With such a wide range of options the rider can find the perfect choice for the steepest hills, long gradual climbs, or aggressive downhill action.
If you are looking for a reliable go-anywhere bike, come into Scheller’s and take the DS 8.4 for a test ride.

You may have already heard about the 2013 Trek Dual Sport 8.4 that we have in at Scheller's bike shops in Lexington, Louisville, and Clarksville IN. 
We previously mentioned the bike's 27 gears, offering you the versatile action for steep hills, gradual climbs, and downhill action. Today we take a peek at the Shimano drivetrain on the Dual Sport bike.

All of these gears are controlled by a Shimano 9-speed trigger shifter for sure and easy handling.
There is nothing simpler- 
one button makes it harder to pedal. The other makes it easier to pedal. This is just one of the user-friendly features on the DS, a bicycle designed for maximum versatility and comfort everywhere you take it.

2013 Trek 7.2 FXl Fitness Bike: Review Give High Praise

Cycling Enthusiast and Author of "Bike for Life:  How to Ride to 100," Roy Wallack reviewed four fitness bikes in a recent column for the Los Angeles Times.  He had this to say about the fitness bike category:

If you're ready to ride a bike for fitness but not ready to hunch over like a Tour de France racer or tackle death-defying single-track trails in the mountains, a single-speed, bulbous-tire beach cruiser won't do. You need a "fitness bike," what the industry now calls the broad category that combines the large, fast-rolling 700-C wheels of road bikes, a tough multi-tread tire and the straight handlebars of a mountain bike. Formerly known as hybrids, these lightweight aluminum-frame bikes have become more refined, stylish and specialized; all work for commuting while sporting varying capabilities for pavement and mild dirt paths.
His review of the 2013 Trek 7.2 FX Fitness Bike really caught our attention: 

Trek 7.2 FX: The all-conditions performance fitness bike for road, trail and commuting comes with 24-speed Shimano Alivio drive-train, puncture-resistant tires and mountain-bike style V brakes.
Likes: Fast, quick and balanced on road and mild dirt paths. Like the Specialized, it has more of a leaned-over, high-performance position than the Electra or the Felt, plus just enough style (note the red accents) to feel hip. Fender mounts make it a worthy all-weather commuter. It's also available in a women's model with altered dimensions. The FX's higher-end models have disc brakes and better components. For more off-road capability, go to the Trek 8 Dual Sport bikes, which have a light suspension fork.
Dislikes: None.

2013 Road Bike?? Cardboard? What Do You Think?

Will this bike one day become the cheapest we've ever sold at our Lexington bike shop?
A newly designed bicycle from Israeli entepreneur Izhar Gafni, is made from light-weight, durable, eco-friendly, inexpensive, and waterproof cardboard! Does it sound too incredible to be true? That's exactly what the experts said.
Gafni wanted to create a bicycle that would be too inexpensive to be vulnerable to theft, and began experimenting with building a bicycle out of cardboard boxes. Though he was met with skepticism from the engineers he consulted with, he persevered. He now has a working model- a bonafide bicycle made from cardboard.
The prototype may still undergo more changes, but presently the production cost is about $9 to $12 per bike. Gafni has not yet found a manufacturer to produce the bikes, so it is uncertain what the total cost will be, but Gafni says it will cost less than $90 new.

Team's Sky's success secrets in Tour De France 2012

As our bike shop in Lexington watched the 2012 Tour de France, the winning strategy of Britain's Team Sky stood out among the highlights and notable things about the race this year. Sky's overwhelming success was not only due to some incredible individual performances, but an overall strategy of putting the team first, even when doing so was hard on individual riders.
Bradley Wiggins took home England's first yellow jersey, no big shock to anyone who followed the race. Wiggins had held a comfortable lead for a long distance, over many days. By Saturday, the win was more or less certain, after Wiggins won his second time trial. 
When Wiggins finished, his teammate Chris Froome followed just 3:21 after. The closeness was particularly memorable in light of Wiggins-Froome dynamics which had drawn media attention earlier on in the race.
Froome surpassed expectations with his outstanding performance on mountain climbs, testing Team Sky's winning strategy of pushing Wiggins to the lead. The team's faith was on Wiggins' ability to win the time trials, and Froome was held back in several stages to ensure Wiggins' lead. Tension over this strategy erupted in an catty twitter skirmish between Froome's girlfriend and Wiggins' wife, starting in the 11th stage. 
 Team Sky's teamwork also made its mark when Mark Cavendish was assisted in taking a fourth consecutive stage win on the Champs-Elysees. Wiggins expressed appreciation for Sky's teamwork. "It's magnificent," he said. "For us to finish like this as a team, helping Mark to victory and allowing him to defend his record here... it's incredible."

Cyclist injured in shooting determined to ride on

News of the tragic shooting in Colorado has touched our Lexington bike shop. We received the news that a cyclist riding cross country was one of the 50 people injured in the shooting that killed twelve others. 
The cyclist, Stephen Martin of Connecticut, was riding cross country with his travel partner Ethan, and decided to go to the movies with a friend at the Aurora, Colorado theater. Martin was shot in the back of the neck, and sustained other injuries from shrapnel. He underwent surgery for his injuries, and is expected to recover.
He says hopes to continue and finish his cross country ride, which he has been planning for almost three years. Martin said he has not yet been told whether or when he will be able to finish, but he is hopeful. "In some sense, I'd feel like if we can't complete it, it's like the terrorists have really won...I have some scars, but I'll be fine," he said. "I really want to ride."
Our thoughts are with all those affected by this tragedy.  Stephen Martin, we wish you the very best in your recovery and hope to see you riding again soon!

Wiggins in yellow jersey: bike shop Lexington follows Tour de France

Wiggins in yellow jersey/Nicolas Bouvy / EPA / July 18, 2012
Here at our bike shop in Lexington, we've been following the 2012 Tour de France, now in its final days.
In the yellow jersey, Brit Bradley Wiggins survived the steep, arduous 17th stage of the race today, and said he senses the tour is "pretty much over". 
With just three days remaining in the 2012 Tour de France, Wiggins seems to be secure in his lead. Wiggins finished third in the 17th stage, behind teammate Christopher Froome who came in second. Wiggins kept an overall lead of 2 minutes five seconds ahead of Froome.
The remaining stages in the Tour de France are two flat stages and a time trial, with Wiggins is predicted to perform well, especially in the time trial. With any luck, Wiggins will, in just 3 days, be the first Brit to take home the Tour de France yellow jersey.
Alejandro Valverde of Spain enjoyed an emotional victory in the 17th stage today. This tour marks his return from a two year doping ban, and it started out rough with Valverde crashing three times, but still enduring. A teary Valverde said of his win, “It erases all of the past.”

Aston Martin One 77 (the bicycle)

What is the most drool-worthy bicycle in the world? Opinions vary. We might have some contenders at our shop in Lexington, but not every bicycle can be found at a local retailer.
With the legendary sports car manufacturer Aston Martin partnering with  Factor Bikes to introduce the One 77, the question may be already settled.

The One 77, being called "the world's most technologically advanced road bicycle" combines elements of the exclusive Aston Martin One 77 sports car to the world of cycling, such as its construction from a unique ultra light-weight carbon fiber composite, super advanced computer system, and the beautiful design and details you might expect from a bike called One 77. The bike is outfitted with Shimano Dura-Ace components.
The seventy-seven One 77 sports cars have all been sold, with reports of one crashing in Hong Kong last month. The One 77 bicycle, estimated to cost around $40,000 is sure to sell out quickly as well.

Sheller's bike shop Lexington: Tour de France 2012 highlights (w/ video)

Follow the 99th Tour de France with our bike shop Louisville, as the race approaches the end of its first week.
There were plenty of unexpected news developments in the race's lead-up this year.  This year has been marked by a number of special situations including  injuries, changes of teams, and doping charges that stripped Tour de France legend Lance Armstrong of his titles.
The beginning of the race was also full of excitement, with a few crashes, such as a multi-bike pile-up that included Olympic hopeful Mike Cavendish, in the closing of Stage 4. Cavendish emerged from the crash uninjured, but unhappy.
Germany's Andre Greipel won Stage 4, and he came through the finish roaring with emotion over his 1st-ever victory in the Tour de France. He came through victorious again in Stage 5, pulling in front in the final hundred meters in what he called "the hardest sprint of my life."
Stay with our blog in the coming weeks for Louisville's updates on the Tour de France!

Bike shop Clarksville, IN: Top Ten Bike Dangers- #5 Red Light of Death

This is part of a series from Schellers bike shop Clarksville, IN  drawn from the website Bicyclesafe.com about staying avoiding the most common car-bike collisions.#5 Red Light of Death
You come to a stop to the right of a car already waiting at a red light or stop sign. They don't see you. When the light turns green, you go forward, and they turn right, right into you. Even small cars can miss seeing you in their blindspot, but this scenario is especially dangerous when it is a bus or truck that you're stopping next to. An Austin cyclist was killed in 1994 when he stopped to the right of a semi, and then it turned right. He was crushed under its wheels.

How to avoid this accident:

Never stop in a car's blind spot. Simply stop behind a car, rather than to the right of it, as in the below diagram. This makes you easily visible to traffic on all sides. It is impossible for the car behind you to miss you when you are directly in front of it.

Bike shop Louisville: Top Ten Bike Dangers- #4 The Wrong Way Wreck

Schellers bike shop Louisville brings you a report on the most common collisions from the very well researched website Bicyclesafe.com.

You're riding the wrong way (against traffic, on the left-hand side of the street). A car makes a right turn from a side street, driveway, or parking lot, right into you. They did not see you because they were looking for traffic only on their left, not on their right. They did not expect that someone would be coming at them from the wrong direction.
Even worse, you could be hit by a car on the same road coming at you from straight ahead of you. They had less time to see you and take evasive action because they're approaching you faster than normal (because you're going towards them rather than away from them).

How to avoid this wreck:

Don't ride against traffic. Ride with traffic, in the same direction.
Riding against traffic might seem like a good idea because you can see the cars that are passing you, but it is much safer to ride with traffic.

Bike shop Louisville: Top Ten Bike Dangers-#3 The Crosswalk Slam

Schellers bike shop Clarksville, IN is presenting a series of biking safety posts from the excellent website Bicyclesafe.com. These tips could save your life!
You're riding on the sidewalk, so you cross an intersection at a crosswalk, and a car makes a right turn, right into you. Drivers aren't expecting cyclists in the crosswalk, and it's hard for them to see you because of the nature of turning from one street to another, so it is very easy for someone to get hit this way.  This collision is very, very common.  One study showed that sidewalk-riding was twice as dangerous as road riding, and another study said it's even more dangerous than that.

How to avoid this collision:

1. Use a headlight for maximum visibility. Many places this is required by law at night.
2. Slow down. Slow down enough that you're able to stop completely if necessary.
3. Its generally wise to avoid the sidewalk. There are exceptions to this when the sidewalk is very long, not requiring you to cross the street, and there are few pedestrians.

Bike shop Louisville: Top Ten Bike Dangers- #2 The Door Prize

This is part of a series our bike shop in Lexington is doing on how not to get hurt or killed on your bicycle, from the website Bicyclesafety.com. A driver opens their door right in front of you.  You can't stop in time, and run right into it.  This kind of crash is more common and more deadly than you might think:  It's the second-most common car-bike crash in Toronto, and the #1 crash Santa Barbara. The folks at Bicyclesafe.com have compiled a huge list of cyclists killed by car doors opening. Defensive cycling prevents tragedies.

How to avoid this accident:

1. Ride further to the left! As talked about in the first post, riding to the left prevents a number of the most common cycling collisions. Many cyclists feel nervous about moving to the left because of traffic passing them, but it is the safest place to ride.
