- Sector Expert Disc
This aluminum bike uses geometry similar to the 2013 Roubaix line of plush, carbon road bikes. The Sector puts its rider in an upright position, making it more comfortable for cyclists with less flexible backs. A new model in the line, the $2,100 Sector Expect, comes with disc brakes, giving it all-weather versatility. All of the bikes in the Sector line have clearance for 38mm tires, or 32mm with fenders, which means the bike is perfect for anyone who enjoys exploring dirt roads.
