Trek’s Farley is about as ‘Wisconsin’ as a bike can be. The frame is named after the larger-than-life comic Chris Farley, who was born and raised in Madison; the wheels are named after the folklore animal, the Jackalope, which may not have originated in the Badger State, but has seriously deep roots there; and the tires are called Hodag, which is a fearsome mythological beast that resides near the town of Rhinelander in Northern Wisconsin. The only thing that could make this bike more Wisconsin is cheesehead-shaped hand pogies.
