That's hard for me to say since I didn't buy a Trek. How about this: Lance rode one.

Oooh, I like it. Maybe a little twist on the last one: "If you're not with Trek, you're against Trek."

hmmm

Trek has a lifetime warranty on their frames.

But Jamis is a better bang for the buck.

Trek has ABP and OCLV.


Just don't point out that other manufacturers have variations (Read: Same Thing) of them.

Couldn't find the video of Lance going down the side of the mountain but how about "even the low weight road bikes can go off road".

A US company. R&D and other moneys stay here to help the economy some of its production is here, then go to its marketing literature and pull out it's buzz words.

Giant makes a majority of Treks frames, so Trek must be better.
