Congratuations on your new bike. I have bar ends on my DS and would not want to be without them. Not only do they give me additonal hand holds on long rides but also provide leverage when climbing...

It's a good looking bike. I wonder if a back rack could be fitted, and if so would it look funny given the bikes lines.

I wonder if Trek simply has not finiished updating the site or if some bikes in the line-up will be by-passed for the DuoTrapS capability. I did notice it is available on the 8.1. It seems odd they...

Has anyone noticed the updated Trek website with the updated DS models shown? The new bikes have the DuoTrapS designation (maybe I am just late to the party). This allows for an accessory which...

Any Update on Shock Recall?

Awesome. They should have done this in the first place. On another note does anybody have an update on the shock recall situation. My LBS pryed the bike out of my fingers when I took it in. They told...

I wonder if the set up from their Boone lineup would be the solution. As it states in the description from the website smooth ride with no performance deficit. They would probably be reluctant to...

I have the 2013 DS 8.3 which is not listed. I guess this is one of those times in life where it pays to have acquired the less expensive version. Hey, at least Trek is not GM!
