Trek has released a new 29er bike for 2012 called Wahoo. This new 29er bike takes pride in its light Gold Series butted-aluminum frame from Trek. The 29″ wheels keep momentum and offer more stability as well.

Along with the frame are a G2 29er geometry and a 100mm-travel fork to offer first-rate handling, clear-cut steering and absolute control on all kinds of trails. With its hydroformed Alpha Gold aluminum tubing, the ride is made even stiffer and more responsive.

In case the rider wants to slow down in any circumstance, it is made easier through the Solid Tektro disc brakes that put a clamp on the light Bontrager 29er wheels. The 2012 Trek Wahoo 29er Bike also has Shimano 24-speed drivetrain and Bonty components that allow the rider to cruise anywhere easily.

Norco has released a lot of exciting bikes for 2012, one of which is the Valence Road Bike. The Valence is designed for road riders who join Grand Fondos and charity rides instead of racing. While it is a high performance machine, its setup and position are more comfortable than those of a pure road race bike.

The new proprietary frame is designed to offer high performance with compliance for road vibration. Making the Valence a precise steering machine bike is a stiff chassis formed with an oversized downtube, a tapered headtube, oversized headset, and a proprietary full carbon fork.

Nicely refined and engineered, the 2012 Norco Valence Road Bike is an aluminum machine that comes with vibration-damping Applied Road Compliance (ARC) seatstays. It offers a beginner-friendly upright ride position and smooth inner surface, achieved through the EPS (ethyl polystyrene) mandrel system.
