Trek Travel, the industry leader in personalized cycling vacations, is pleased to announce the addition of the Trek 6.9SSL Madone carbon fiber road bike with Dura Ace Di2 electronic shifting, now available as an upgrade on select bike trips.
With the most precise system available on the market, the Di2 electronic shifting allows for quicker shifts, lighter weight, continuous auto alignment of the derailleur and over 1000 miles of charge, all for shifting as easy as a mouse click.
"For the past 10 years Trek Travel has dominated the bike tour industry with the best bikes and equipment available, including the Trek 5.2 Madonoe carbon road bike and Trek 7.7 FX hybrids at no extra cost on all our bike tours" said Tania Worgull, owner, President and founding member of Trek Travel. "With the addition of the 6.9 Di2 road bike upgrade, we are moving even further out in front of the pack with the best and most technologically advanced bike fleet in the entire cycling tour industry. If people want to ride the best then Trek Travel is the clear choice."
The 6.9SSL Madone road bike is made with Trek's patented OCLV race lite carbon and also has carbon Bontrager Aeolus 5.0 wheels making it the lightest and highest performing bike built by Trek Bicycle Corporation. The 6.9 Madone will be used by team RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK for the 2012 Pro cycling race season including at the Tour de France.
Rounding out the rest of Trek Travel's high end bike fleet are the Trek 5.2 Madone carbon road bike (also available in Women's Specific Design sizes) and the light weight Trek 7.7 FX hybrid bike that come standard on every Trek Travel trip at no extra cost as well as other available upgrades including the Trek 6.5 Madone road bike; the Trek 6.9 standard shifting road bike and the 7.5 FX Electrical Assist hybrid bike.
Beyond bike upgrades Trek Travel guests can also upgrade to the Garmin Edge 800 to use on their bike tour. With GPS positioning and mapping directions it is a convenient alternative to paper directions or maps. This Garmin also tracks speed, distance and time which are all useful while cycling and will enhance the guest's experience.
