The 2013 Superfly. 29er at it's best

This is the coolest picture of the 2013 Superfly around...
Added a video.
M1 Cycles had the chance recently to check out the latest 29ers from Trek, up close....
We even rode them at Mt Stromlo on some of the best singletrack in the nation.
Initial thoughts when ridden were:
  • If you're a "29er Doubter" you really need to ride one of these;
  • Pushes hard into corners;
  • You'll find you're pedalling when you'd normally coast;
  • ...makes you want to carry more speed into corners and you'll be finding different lines all over the place;
  • Requires a little more upper body effort in general, but the reward is a ballistic, smooth ride;
  • ...few will go faster than on one of these.
  • I can't believe you can get your hands on a Superfly from $1999
