    ..."because at Trek, they race what they sell, and sell what they’ve raced."

    Inside Trek?s US Race Department | Cyclingnews.com

    Recently, Waxham made some custom horizontal dropouts so he could build Frank and Andy Schleck a pair of fixed-gear Madone training bikes.

    “They [dropouts] are actually from our T1000 track bike,” he said. “And it allows them [the Schlecks] to have a bike that fits just like their race bike, but have a fixed-gear training tool. We did two 58cm bikes for them in the same team colors; they were kind of cool looking once they were built up

    What Trek should be doing is figuring out how to put motors in Andy's and Frohnk"s TT bikes.

    Well sure, the team has a mixture of Americans and Luxembourgers, even a German guy.

    Andy will still drop a chain, even with a fixie.
