Trek Supercaliber Bike check Luke Moir

You might have recently read the interview with Luke Moir where he talks about his race strategy and motivation which led to him securing his 8th National title. Since then, Luke has changed teams so we caught up with him for a closer look at his new race bike.

Luke stands at 176cm tall and rides a large Trek Supercaliber. He has made some minor modifications to the bike to suit his riding style which is best described as hard and fast!

He feels the lockout system is not needed and wanted to clean up the cockpit a little so it’s been completely removed. He has added a dropper post and alternates between a trail and XC wheelset depending on the course he is racing.
