Pure Speed and Enjoyment

The ride:
The ride was natural and telepathic. That’s what you want to hear on a fairly short test ride session right? It was very easy to get used to as the position seemed natural and not to high off the ground. Acceleration was awesome and traction seemed like it was always there.

Descending on the bike seemed really easy as it carved through the singletrack of Park City with ease. I never locked out the platform suspension yet the steep pitches that surprised me were never an issue. The only real problem was my lungs not quite ready for the 9000 foot elevation!

It was easy to forget that this was a 29er since it rode very similar to a 26er. But when the going got real rough on rocky fire roads, the trails did seem smoother than they looked. And at the Wasatch Crest trail, as my guide Photo-John coasted in front of me on his 26er, I had to grab a handful of brake to avoid ramming into him as I was coasting too.

Like I said, these are just first impressions and I hope to ride it more. But color me impressed so far.

Out with the young and in with the old...

It's that time of year again at the Trek Store when our staff undergoes major changes. The season is winding down after another crazy summer (just look what it did to Julia) and school is just around the corner.
Here that means it's time to say good-bye, or at least see you next week, to the students and teachers that work so hard over the hot summer days. Tex, Vince, J-Pa and the Hybrid King will be teaching or learning here in KC and will continue to grace us with their presence. While the Schapkers will be leaving us to study on opposite sides of the US hopefully to return once again next summer.
But at least an old familiar face has rejoined us to make the partings less painful. Joel 'Big Grin' Dyke will be turning a wrench a few days a week between bouts of welding, fris and general shenanigans with the Mrs. Welcome back, study hard, and safe travels.

Chris Wallace World Championship Travel Fun!

Congratulations to KCCX/VERGE rider Chris Wallace for being selected as a member of the 2009 Junior World Championships Team in Hoogerheide, Holland. After a successful inaugural Euro-Cross Camp, Chris will head back to Europe on January 23rd to prepare for Worlds. This is very prestigious honor for any rider. Many work their entire life to make the Worlds team and never accomplish their goal. Chris is fortunate enough to have reached this goal at a very young age. In an effort to help with the travel expenses we ask the cycling community to pitch in to help a local rider make a dream come true.

Donations can be made online

Or join us on Tuesday, January 20th at the Trek Store of Kansas City. The festivities will begin at 7:00 P.M. and end at 9:00 P.M. We will have some tasty Famous Dave's BBQ and Boulevard Beer. All proceeds will go directly to the travel fund. We hope to see you at the Trek Store of Kansas City.

Thank you for supporting the KCCX/VERGE Elite Cycling Team.
