FeaturesGary Fisher Collection Innovative bikes imagined by Gary Fisher, built by Trek 200 Series Alpha Aluminum Trek's premium alloy, formed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strength and minimum weight. BB86.5 BB86.5 bottom bracket improves pedaling performance for exhilarating acceleration. Crown mounted cable housing stop Conventional chatter - Brake chatter occurs when the steerer tube flexes under hard braking loads. This increases the distance between the traditional headset housing stop and the brake caliper, causing the brake to chatter. Tapered The Bontrager E2 fork tapers from a 1.5" lower bearing to a 1-1/8" upper bearing. The larger-diameter lower bearing keeps the E2 fork stiffer under cornering loads and distributes forces more evenly, increasing the life of the bearings. Result: a more confident and durable ride. Fender compatible Vanishing fender mounts allow for full-coverage fenders so you can ride comfortably in less-than-ideal conditions. A better-handling road bike FCC rethinks every component along the steering column to deliver a road bike that handles like no other. It's a stiffer, more confident, corner-carving front end.
