No but I'm ordering the new Trek OCLV TT bike. They made some adjustments to te seat post issue. Then they lowered theprice. The frame and a 5900 fork is now $3300 and a complete bike with ultegra is $4k I CANT WAIT TO GET IT!!!!

I swear they market these bikes toward new owners. First of all, there are a ton of newer OCLV Treks for sale on ebay... second, all the closeout Treks at my LBS have triples. Maybe I'm missing something here...

I'm not ripping on Trek, BTW... I'm considering either a Trek or Look Carbon. Trouble is, no matter what carbon I go with, there seem to be a ton of people with negative anecdotes. I'm also interested in Calfee, but there doesn't seem to be a dealer within hundreds of miles (and yet I was in a shop Friday that had maybe a hundred Colnago C40 frames hanging from the ceiling- a bit out of my price range).
A triple, no less! For us "OLD" owners.....davet

I'm 25 years old off my bike and on the flats, and 112 on big climbs. Nice to have "granny" there to bail me out when I need her...

Where the 5200 is blue, the 5900 is black. The 5900's fork has a carbon crown. The 5200's fork has an aluminum crown.

you can get a 5900 frame new for $1800 with no tax on the net. I have 5900 with 10k miles on it and I ave never had any issues. Its been raced abou 40 times. I ride it everyday, nothing has ever broke and the fork is super tough! Its comfortable on 5-6 hour rides. I have a pave seat too which isnt exactly cushy, thats how I know its the bike. I really hope the OCLV TT will return the same lovei have for the 5900. Ahhh I have been dreaming about it for 2 years and finally they lowered the price :) o baby! This is going to be my 8th Trek OCLV. I have had 2 mtn bikes and the rest road. I have nothing bad to say about Trek, and those who do, well, they would have to ride alot to spend more timeon the bike than me and have larger experience then the last 4 years with OCLV. I o understand ocassionally frames can break in crashs and stuff but, outside that, they are super sweeeeeeeet!
