I took a couple of my Trek bikes in for service and the nice folks let me go test a demo 2016 Emonda S 4 road bike. This is a great bike, smooth and fast gearing, and looks great. The seat was firmer than on my FX (I’m a newbie) but the overall feel and speed was really nice. This is the next step bike from my 2014 FX. The weather here in Florida is great for biking right now. The gearing is all in the handlebars and you have 3 different positions to hold onto the bars. The brakes felt good but I just rode on flat roads around the shop. The steering is very precise compared to my FX and the position and balancing are very different compared to the FX. This bike just wants to go, and is really smooth. The bike is $1499 and they are on sale for $1299. I reckon you check it out.
