Trek’s Procaliber hardtail
#1
Being a lover of riding hard tail bikes off-road this looks like an amazing idea, yes it's not new trek have had it on their road bikes for awhile now, and companies of old have play with all sorts of things like this in the birth of full suss bike, but could this one work? Seems to be aimed at better performance while in the saddle as in on the flats or climbing.
Nice thinking trek 8-)

Interesting, but £6k is a lot for a little extra hardtail comfort!

I love hardtails too. Definitely looking to add one to the armoury in the next 12 months or so

Ouch! On the price tag, but that is for the top top model, starts at £2250 which is still pricey for the cheapest in the range for hard tails. :o

Squeaking does sound like a big down side, even more so on a road bike. Have they had any other issues with it on the road model?

Not as far as I know, my Brother rides one & it squeaks from the moment you get on it to the moment you get off it...one of those not loud enough to drive in insane squeaks but loud enough to make you aware its there. I guess you would get immune to it & perhaps not even notice it on a mountain bike with all the crashing about of the undergrowth

Sounds like you need a bit of FAT in your stable Big Grin

How is this really any different from a softtail? Is it more efficient? I suppose that if I were in the market for a hardtail, I'd want it to be as comfortable as possible, but it's priced like a top FS bike.

I didn't know that this design was squeaky on the Domane. That would put me right off it.

Torn at the moment between a nice HT or a cheap one I'd leave outside the supermarket. Possibly singlespeed again

Haven't considered fatbikes but I guess I shouldn't knock it till I've tried it!
