It's on the website now! All the bikes are there at ww.trekbikes.com

The USPS TT bike, fully equipped now is only $3,999.99! What's up with that? I kinda feel sorry for those who bought before at 4,000 bucks for only the frame... go ride

What was trek thinking? Why would you not go ahead and release the new bikes pre-tour. As lance rides to a 4th victory there is an incredible advertisement for your brand new bike. Now three weeks later, there is a full release. Maybe its because the new TT bike looks like crap.

I don't know...

2003= Change the fork, change the paint, downgrade the wheelset, lower the price a bit... these are not revolutionary changes- mainly it is the PAINT. The TT bike? I doubt I'll ever see one locally.

Besides the new colors and price has anyone noticed that Trek has changed the geometry as well, their using a more relaxed seat tube angle this year.

i am not disputing your word, i haven't compared last years geometry to this years, but i was under the impression that it would require new molds to change seat tube angle and that this would be very expensive. i believe it cost about $30,000 to create each new mold so wouldn't that be exspensive. of course it would be a lot cheaper to just change the specs in the add copy.
Apparently they did changefiltersweep

Very observant... nothing radical but slightly different. Maybe they just changed how they measured things... not unlike their already creative frame sizing?
