The bike rides great and has exceeded my expectations. It inspires confidence and has been putting a stupid shit eating grin on my face every ride. I believe this design is catching on as I’m starting to see more and more Treks out there on the trail, mostly the Fuel EX. I have also seen that Trek is adding the ABP design to the Top Fuel and the Sessions (Cross country full suspension and DH bike) leading me to believe that Trek is confident in the new design. Here is a sneak peak at some of the new bikes coming out from Trek in 2009:
At $4700, it’s a pricey bike with no XTR components at all. Also there are is no Thomson Post, Easton Bars and all the usual high-end components that we know and trust. Bontrager parts are found all around and although they work very well, it is hard to put a value on them and there is little cachet or bling factor to them.
