New Trek Madone and Fuel EX



If, unlike me, you like Trek bikes or are one of many Lance wannabes, take a look at the new Madone and an article that looks more like a press release or PR crap from Trek at VeloNews and a more substantial article from CyclingNews... It really is a catching up model, using the 1.125" top, 1.5" bottom headset like Cannondale, Ridley and others are doing, press fit BB bearings like Cannondale and Scott. Interesting things is the super wide BB shell and the lack of metal insert where the bearings are pressed in, because lighter and stiffer is a good thing.


Yeah, I'd be bored too...

Trek also did some catching up in their mountain range and unveiled the 2008 Fuel EX line. Nothing extraordinary and just like the Madone looks like a Specialized Tarmac, the Fuel EX has striking similarities with Specialized bikes with a downtube that curves at the bottom and with graphics that almost scream Specialized. Again, CyclingNews has the info.

Jeez, Team Discovery as in discover new ways to dope and not get caught. I'll never buy another Trek again. Lance + Bush = hopeless America.
