    This makes sense. There aren't any Bontrager pedals. And Trek did give the impression that this could be a game changer.

    Since it is Classic season I would bet on suspension, comfort frame material like countervail or graphene, or a new electric unicorn unicycle hybrid whale influenced mud shedding large tire aero thing that is difficult to work on at home.

    Interesting material. It could fill the voids in carbon weaves and give the modulus of elasticity of steel alloys, at slightly less weight.

    Unless it is an SPD-cleat MTB powermeter pedal...there's nothing too revolutionary about another pedal on the market.

    Definitely more "exciting" than another carbon fiber layup with all-but-made-up statistics about how much stiffer it is.

    I haven't seen anything, but whatever Trek is doing to hype up their announcement, it seems to be working judging from the speculation here.
    Insert something clever here:

    f other companies offer something similar it might offer value, if they don't its likely to be a flash in the pan. time does something to their carbon for years. nobody imitates it. and buyers don't seem to be avoiding other brands as a result

    I'm sure that whatever it is it will be good. But will Trek be good at making it?

    LeMond won his last Tour De France in 1990... nearly 30 years ago. Perhaps Trek will apologize to him for ruining his brand by dumping him for Armstrong?

    Trek started their OCLV about 30 years ago...hence by guess about a new layup.

    But honestly that is about as exciting as watching my house cat take a nap. And watching my house cat nap is far less expensive.

    Trek Hyping-up March 19th Announcement - "Everything Else is History"

    Well, given Trek’s love of word jumbles, odds are it’s the All-New Trek:

    NoMade
    DamOne
    Daemon
    OdName
    ADemon
    Mondae
    Domena
    EmoDan
    MoeNad
    DoenMa
    Enomad
    Noamed
    AdOmen
    ManDoe
    OnaMed

    Whatever it’s called,it will be a motorized downhill bike designed specifically for snow... made of unobtainium... and it will cost roughly $23,000...

    You're right. Trek is partnering with Floyd Landis and Floyd's of Leadville. Trek will be offering carbon bikes with hemp fibers mixed in to the carbon weave to "mellow" out the harshness of stiff carbon frames.
