Ok, the apocalypse is here. Reality stars are presidents, DH bikes are 29ers, Cats and dogs—living together. But we all knew this was coming. Santa Cruz let theirs out few weeks ago, so for sure the big dogs were not far behind—perhaps just waiting for a bigger event in the northern hemisphere to launch their version. The new Trek Session DH bike actually comes in both wheel flavors: A complete 27.5 with a stiffer frame, race-focused geometry, updated suspension optimized for air
