2021 Trek Checkpoint

.

Anyone have any insight on any changes looming for the coming model year? I anticipate T47 to be standard across all models/versions, and also the potential for the same rear iso as the 2020 Domane, and perhaps more tire clearance.
(I read elsewhere that the Emonda may end up with similar changes, except with less max tire clearance, of course).

perhaps i'm dense, but i'm not tracking the meaning of 'boost spacing'. Perhaps you can enlighten me.

Boost on gravel road bike? Seems like a change to change.
Are gravel road wheels not already stiff enough?

ha, nicely done. A play on 'nomad' (and the insistence of Trek to name their bikes using anagrams of the same letters).

another option may be 'daemon'.

Itís not a play, it is the older spelling of Nomad -probably the more correct one. Daemon would be better given to the aero bike and Madone should be on the Emonda. https://www.bikeradar.com/features/trek-daemon/

Boost spacing would allow 700x45 with shorter chainstays and 2x compatibility. But I don't think CS length is that big a deal in this segment. Boost spacing would also mean no one's existing gravel/road wheels would fit.

I think the '21 Checkpoint will be more like the new Domane (which I have) : front Iso, rear Iso but probably not adjustable, DT storage, 2x & 700x42c /650b clearance, maybe semi-tucked cables.

Same 600 series as current bike, whereas the Domane SLR is the much costlier 700 series carbon. I would like to see a Pro Endurance geometry option for the next Checkpoint.

Yes, that seems to be probable. We'll find out for sure sometime in March, or whenever they usually release info on the coming year's models (unless there's a Trek dealer/insider here that can share any other hints in the meantime)
