The Roscoe impresses riders around the globe with high-quality parts that tear up the trail. Its reliable and durable Alpha Gold Aluminium frame is backed by Trek's lifetime guarantee and makes light work or big climbs and tricky descents. Trek built the Roscoe 8 without a front derailleur, removing the risk of gears becoming clogged up or unreliable as the surface gets mucky and with an 11-50 cassette at the back, you can still rely on the same great range of gears as previously experienced with a 2x system upfront. The Bontrager dropper line seat post, not only makes getting on the bike easier but on-the-fly adjustments quick and easy. Upgraded disc brakes and wheelset ensures plenty of stopping power that keeps you safe in all conditions and surfaces. The Roscoe is the perfect bike for those who have enjoyed mountain biking all their lives or newbies looking for something reliable to get them started.
