Expirience with the Trek Session 8 29 GX

Trek Session 8 29 GX Review Reece Wilson's world champion bike, the Session 8 29 GX , is now available for the avarage Joe. And it cuts a damn fine figure in every bike park. The combination of a 0 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the Trek Fully, even if you ride fast. Heavy riders over 85 kilos aren´t likely to encounter too many problems with the high weight of 17,7 kg. For lighter riders, this could be a disturbance. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Trek puts a lot of trust in its products.
