2015 Trek Bikes Demo at China Camp State Park

Sunday August 23rd – 10am to 2pm

Trek has released most of their new models for 2016. There are some great new XC race bikes, improved trail bikes, and even faster road bikes. This Sunday will be your first chance to try the new stuff at the demo at China Camp, and also enter to win a $100 gift card to Acme Bikes.
We will be there to make suggestions and fit you to the bike you want to try, then you can take it out for a spin on the trails or the road.
We will have the new Procaliber IsoSpeed hardtails and Top Fuel XC race bikes, both in carbon with 1×11 drivetrains and the new wider Boost hub spacing.
The redesigned Fuel EX and Remedy will also be there, sporting the same improved hub spacing and the ReAktiv damping that Trek developed with Penske Racing. Check out the 17mm shorter chainstays on the Fuel EX and the new Fox 36 on the Remedy.
We will also have the new Lush Carbon women’s trail bike, Madone 9.2, Silque SLX and Emonda.
Time will be 10-2:00 on August 23.
