it really is a sharp looking bike. as Al said i have heard many good things about it. But having some good saddle time on a geared and SS 29er, i would say i did not notice any loss of acceleration. Climbs like a beast. (thats a good thing)
That brown saddle on the bike really sets everything off for me
Yeah, I saw it, too. I couldn't believe the price tag associated with it. $2400 for a hardtail single speed? -- must be because they are only going to make a few of them. Can't blame them -- if someone feels it is worth it and wants to shell out the money, more power to Trek.
I dont remember exactly why, but I am sure Brett can back me up on this, if you look at any motocross bike, big front,smaller rear. I believe the theory is the same, big in the front to grab, less in the rear to spin faster.
I may be off a bit but it has been like 20 years since my AMA has expired.
i haven't researched them in awhile since i'm pretty well set on a full 29er, but IIRC, trek wasn't moving on the pricing so folks getting them for that are doing really well. if they're telling the truth, that is.
This bikes been kickin around for awhile and there's not too many of them.The price from Trek is ridiculous but everything Dan found so far is legit.It's cool looking but basically I don't get it.This could help some people keep they're trailing tire in line more in the twisty but i don't see the need for a product to solve pilot error.Full 29 hardtail, assimilate or die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
