2015 Viking Trieste Gents Road Racing Flat Bar Bike 24 Speed

A new model for this year the Viking Trieste lends some extra gears to last years Treviso. The frame has road racing geometry but this bike comes fitted with a flat bar. It's specially tailored for riders who want the mile crunching ability and speed of a race bike but would also like the comfort and practicality of a hybrid commuter. The upgraded 24 speed system features Shimano STI push button gear shifters for effortless gear changing and braking, 32 hole aero rims with quick release hubs and Shimano derailleurs.

The larger 700c wheels, narrow tyres and higher gearing make it easier to achieve and maintain higher speeds, than a mountain bike or hybrid.
