I can see Trek replacing the frame, but good luck getting them help spring for what you would need to replace. You could make the disc brake upgrade for $300 or less.
That would be good news if I didn't have to replace the cassette, derailleur, and chain. The hubs will have to be switched regardless of any of that, since my current XT hubs aren't disc compatible.
