Trek bikes have been getting good recognition for 2017 and for good reason. Everyone has their opinion about the different bike brands out there. As for Trek, I believe you can't bash it until you have actually ridden it. Out of all the bikes I have ridden, these bikes are by far the best handling. Don't just take my word for it, look at what others are saying:
Pinkbike's TakeThe Slash's blistering speed and downhill wizardry helped propel it to the front of the pack in the battle for Mountain Bike of the Year, along with the fact that it's a sign of the future in both the enduro and the DH race worlds. There's no doubt that 29ers have left their awkward adolescent stage far behind, and in 2017 it was the Slash that epitomized just how capable they've become.
The Bike of the Year 2017 is… Trek Fuel Ex 7
When it comes to knowing bikes we have 75 years of experience under our belt. Bikes are in our blood. We have sold many different bike brands over the years. As of 2017 we carry Trek, Electra and Transition. Why? Because we had so many awful experiences with other bike brands. Flat out if you want the best bike for your money and a company to back you up, then we have exactly what you want. This is what we live for. We want you to have an amazing experience buying, riding and a great experience if something unpredictable happens.
As for experience and knowledge just talk to Steve the General Manager. He is the forth and next generation to oversea Hyland Cyclery. He has been working at the shop his whole life. His passion for bikes doesn't end when he locks up for the night; he is a bike fanatic. He eats, sleeps, and breaths bikes. Naturally, he has the highest standards for his own bikes. So it is no surprise that the last three bikes he has owned has won the Pink Bike "Bike of the Year" award for three years running. To see his bikes check out his Instagram post.
When you come into Hyland you should feel reassured that you are purchasing a bike from friendly, knowledgeable, passionate bikers that want to make your experience unforgettable. Come into the shop and check out the 2018 Trek and Transition bikes that are out now. Don't forget to ask Steve what he will be riding for 2018 because it will probably make it on the 2018 bike of the year list.
