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

    https://www.trekbikes.com/us/en_US/e...se-is-history/

    Anyone want to speculate on what Trek is up to? (After-all, it's the job of the Interwebs to make-up stuff and hype things-up beyond reason, no?)

    Ironically, they've apparently already used the "Everything else is history" back in 2007 with the introduction of the Madone...

    Madone -- Everything Else Is History

    Perhaps a new bike line using the same letters as their other bike lines...


    • Onemad
    • Neodam
    • Donmade
    • etc...

    A new eBike?

    The Disc version of the SpeedConcept is overdue. The Madone was just refreshed. Domane SLR replacement maybe? Checkpoint 2.0?

    Replacement for the Fuel/Top Fuels mountain bikes, maybe using that fancy new Fox electonic shock?

    Timing would suggest something Classics related, but that wouldn't really be a game changer unless it's gravel related as well. Like an aero Domane/Checkpoint hybrid. But, I"m hoping for a pedal assist DH bike.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    Maybe make a frame that’s more exciting than Luke warm tea?

    i'm going to state what i think is obvious. 30 years ago trek introduced their first carbon frame. for years they touted oclv as some type of superior carbon unavailable from competitors. photo looks like a weave of some sort. trek may be trying to copy what time is doing and adding another fiber to the weave and claim some sort of comfort of benefit, probably comfort. i'm guessing this is going to be more hype than anything else. if adulterating carbon with additional compounds was a magic solution more companies other than time would be doing it and you would be seeing it in airplane parts using carbon, cars etc

    And it almost bankrupted them.

    Trek Bikes at Bikesdirect.com prices? The return of Gary Fisher, LeMond, or Klein? All of Trek's current and past employees get a dozen free bikes to pass out to their college friends?
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    I’m betting it’s a new frame material, perhaps carbon fiber with graphene infused resin.

    Graphene in a frame or wheels is way over due. I figured Enve would be first out with the wheels.

    They didn't talk about it much less show it to us. I've heard rumors of various 'new' versions of certain bikes but nothing about this, whatever it is. One of the test rooms had the double blinds pulled down and the bike that was inside had a sheet over it.

    Meh...

    Probably "exciting" news about more Project One color choices.

    My guess is they bought Pitbull pedals. You haters will have to apologize.
