i dont like the stubby bars. and i dont know what else. something just seems off to me. like its trying too hard to be cool or something
I'm confused. Trek says it's for the "World's greatest cyclist", then they mention a "Mr. Armstrong". Someone's gonna be pissed when they find out Lance has his bike.
its the first treck since the original "nude" oclv that has interested me
the lance branding really ruins it for me.
i prefer thin-tube steel frames on fixed/single gears as it is.....but this just looks odd.
The bike is also $3,400. I don't understand who would buy this.

at least it looks better than the team radio shack madones.
That thing is gross. My roommate should get one, he works at Radio Shack.
I think they failed to hit the mark with this one and it's target customer (super rich people) It needs ceramic disk brakes because it increases the cool wow factor. Regular brakes are for the peasants.
I bet it can go just as far as any other ss with the same ratio.
It is as adaptable to bad weather as any other bike, front fender attaches to down tube, rear fender attaches to seat post, I don't know what else you would need.
It's probably just as comfortable as any other bike in the world. Seat, seat position, handlebars, bar position are the keys things, this bike has them all and they can be adjusted or replaced as desired.
This bike is worth more than your intellect based on your last post.
Only thing that would seem off is the cheap a** pedals, but I suppose this bike is for the rich guy who asks the bike shop for there most expensive comfort bike to store in his garage, not to actually ride regularly.
Ok but back to that crankset. Can I get one with a regular chain ring?
The bums will always lose.
it's a standard 130bcd crank. All you would need is to change out the belt specific ring for a regular chainring. The bb will probably be off though cause a belt won't be running 42mm chainline.
