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.

Test ride the 2013 Madone 3.1 H2 Road Racing Bike at bike shop Clarksville IN

In our new 2013 Trek lineup, now in stock at our bike shops in Clarksville, IN, Lexington, and Louisville, we are showing the 2013 Madone 3.1, a lightweight road and racing machine built with Trek's H2 geometry. Check out this short video about this latest model from Trek.
The frame is ultra light, built with the 300 Series OCLV Carbon, and including a carbon road fork. The carbon construction means this bike weighs in at about 165 grams less than an aluminum frame counterpart.
The Madone utilizes Shimano total integration, allowing the rider to shift gears and brake from the same place, without lifting hands from the handlebars. The Shifters are Shimano 105 10 speed, attached to the Shimano Tiagra front derailleur as well as the Shimano 105 rear derailleur.
Having all these shimano parts makes for effortless compatibility, ensuring that you will always achieve a smooth, confident shift.

A look at the 2013 Trek Dual Sport 8.4 at Scheller's bike shop

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.
The drive train uses Shimano Alivio M431, 48/36/26 w/chainguard with a matching Alivio derailleur in the front. For the rear cluster a SRAM PG-950 11-32, 9 speed cassette and dependable Shimano Deore derailleur. 
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.
Come in and take the new DS 8.4 for a test ride at Scheller's.

2013 Trek DS Dual Sport 8.1 now available at Scheller's bike shops


Scheller’s has the 2013 Trek DS 8.1 on the floor at all our bike shop locations in Clarksville IN, Louisville, and Lexington. This is the all in one bike, perfect for any conditions. It performs equally on and off-road. This bike is great for anyone from fitness junkies, daily commuters, trail riders, and is even fun for the less intense mountain biking trails.
Trek achieves this with a large frame clearance so you can put beefier tires on it for rough terrain. The Alpha Gold aluminum frame is light and uses a mix of mechanical and hydro forming to create more complex tube shapes. This means the bike is wide and stiff where it counts, and light and narrow where it needs to be. It is equipped with an all Shimano drive train, keeping all the components compatible, consistent, and reliable. Comfort is not forgotten with gel-coated grips, and the Bontrager SSR saddle. These are gender-specific  saddles that feature Bontrager’s exclusive contoured relief zone for better pressure dispersal.

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.

We waited with great anticipation this year for our bike shops in Lexington, Louisville, and Clarksville to get the 2013 bicycles that Trek just unveiled, and guess what?...They are rolling in.
