Anyone ever seen one of these?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I was looking at Trek 2.1 and 2.3s and I stumbled across this color scheme. I personally love it (lance/livestrong haters flame on!). Seems that it is only sold in Japan? Not sure if it is 08' or 09' either. Anyone has any info on this please let me know!

That's a pretty sweet looking paint job. I'd almost consider going from a 2.1 to a 2.3 just for the Livestrong look.

Having said that, these might be 2008 models. I'm pretty sure the 2.1 came in the blue/silver scheme last year and that website shows it available for the 2.1.

I have seen that paint scheme before and also think it looks pretty sharp. My son also likes it because it is like BumbleBee the Transformer.

Seems like they get many more color options over there than in the U.S.

I'm jealous...

I love that. If I saw a yellow and black bike when I was shopping it wouldn't have mattered how much it cost. Not a livestrong thing, just a yellow and black thing.
