Any thoughts about the new Trek Top Fuel? I've got an older one, love it.

DT Swiss rear shock looks pretty sweet. Not sure I like the "seat tube" design though.
is this the same bike that might have have legal action from dw link?

Looks like something I'd snap off.

Yeah looks like a very stressed junction

Trek has a powerful R&D team that's well funded. I doubt they'd put something on a high-end bike without testing it extensively.
The only problem is that they didn't have me or Cheeto test it for durability. We must have been outta town or something.

I'm not liking that seat tube one bit. 2008 seat tube is good so why make one that looks like it'll snap off in no time?
Wish I had the money to buy one though. A 2008 Top Fuel that is.

I hope they re-designed the ABP a bit to be more racer friendly.
