I hope you don't mind... Flickr makes it tough, but if you click "actions," then "view all sizes," you get to normal images, so you can right click, get the url, and embed the image here, like so:

White is a really fast color.
Something about the coefficient of friction in that range of the chromal spectrum.

Another guy posted a picture of a new black bike yesterday. I told him that's a fast
color too. Trust me, I know these things.

Enjoy.

It's a good thing he made it early, too, by the way. I heard that Santa got a little caught up in a cyclocross race after he finished delivering the road bikes.

Congratulations and welcome to the trek family : )

I have the 09 model of your 1.2 and am very pleased with it. I did have to replace the wheel, I am 300ish pounds. I love the deep v I put on it, and was amazed with the difference, I only changed out the rear wheel. I am getting my front wheel built for x-mas, along with lights for my new generator hub on my front wheel : )

Here's mine

Santa came early here too (via the post from family in AUS).

I now have some new matching kit (bibs, jersey and LS/winter jersey) to wear on my Boxing Day Ride.
