Trek Names The Bike Shed No 1 in Wales

Trek Bicycles has named The Bike Shed as its top Wales retailer.

The coveted Red Flag status from Trek, a global leader in the design and manufacture of cycles and related products, gives The Bike Shed exclusive sales rights to the new Domane and Madone 6 and 7 series high performance bikes.

The Domane models usher in a new class of race bike. They incorporate Trek's IsoSpeed technology which isolates the seat tube from the rest of the frame, combining speed with rider comfort and stability.

These bikes have earned high praise from journalists putting them through their paces, especially awarding the Domane 6 series five stars for 'uncanny handling' on bad roads, with no adverse effect on pedalling action and no steering deflection thanks to the new technology.

BikeRadar also rates the 2013 Madone 6 series highly, first tests indicating that it is "still a classic Madone, with snappy reflexes, brilliant handling and a suitably stout backbone ... Trek has ticked all the critical chassis performance boxes."

The Bike Shed's John Higgins said: "Trek reserves its Red Flags for dealers that it feels offer the consumer the greatest and widest range of its products. We are delighted to be named their best store in Wales. Having worked closely with Trek over a number of years we regard them as the world number one, offering a fantastic range. You only have to read the latest reviews on Trek bikes to see what the future holds."
