This means that I will not be able to transfer my current wheels or hubs to the replacement frame, and will also need to switch to disc brakes. Do any of you have knowledge regarding this matter? Should I have to foot the bill for all those parts solely because Trek changed their design?? If so, that is pretty unfair. Thanks for your input.
Take this chance to upgrade to some good disk brakes. You'll be glad you did.
