    Fact: Whatever is released on the 19th won't be less expensive than whatever it is designed to replace.

    Carbon. OCLV Carbon. It's not a fat bike, so what do you call it?



    This is the thing on Trek's Instagram. I don't know, are they releasing a bike with a secret motor?

    problem is what when you hype something for two weeks, its simply too easy to create an under-whelmed experience. usually you want to exceed expectations not come in under them. i wouldn't be surprised if there's an attempt to lower expectations as the date approaches. right now it seems like Trek is promising us the cycling equivalent of asolid state circuitry advance from a world of tubes.

    I agree, especially in this day and age where new technologies appear every day and it takes something really big to get us excited.

    Then again, when Trek released the latest iteration of the Madone, I was pretty impressed. I can't afford it, but impressed none-the-less.

    My two-part guess:
    1. New frame/fork material: Dyneema
    2. New model: Let's see, we have the Domane, Madone, Emonda... that leaves:
    Ad Omen
    Amen Do!
    OEM DNA
    Dam Eon
    De Moan
    Mad One
    Made No
    Enemaíd

    Yeah... too many options for the name of the next model. So, I'll stick with just guessing they're about to tell us carbon's dead and plastics are the future.

    If itís a new frame material isnít that a big who cares? What properties will be made better? As said, sure as hell ainít something being made cheaper or more accessible... It has to be wheel material. There is room for improvement there, plenty... Light, strong and heat dissipating. Wait, why, as said, gut discs? Well, Iím no expert, but frames can be improved how at this point, between UCI limits and available materials. But it will be something to look forward to! Graphing vs carbon threads!!
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    Trek will be combining with the great brew houses of Wisconsin as well as the State's finest artisanal cheese makers to bring us Welsh Rabbit on the Go!!!!

    my vote is its not a new bike. Trek told multiple posters not to worry and they can safely order a new bike without worrying they've bought something obsolete. 30 years is clearly puffery. its most likely a new helmet

    I'm kind of surprised that Trek hasn't come-up with any kind of beer-themed bike since there are more micro-breweries in Wisconsin than there are people, but I think Ben's Cycle beat Trek to the punch with their Milwaukee Bike Co...



    I love that logo and I don't even drink beer!

    Only 4 days left until the big reveal, people! I feel like I should've bought and repurposed an Advent calendar to build-up the hype a little.

    Maybe I should take off of work on the 19th in case I faint from all the excitement?
