It certainley does look different, new shapes. It doesn't seem to blend like the "old" oclv frames. And what happen to the semi-compact frame? Carbon 110/teo, any news on that?

ok ok ok ...... well from what we understand, it has thinner tubes,a slightly different geometry and is lighter then a 5900. However, this is due to the slightly smaller geometry but by no means a compact frame. Trek will continue production of the 5900 in addition to the new frame. I think you may see a real OCLV compact frame in a few years...maybe 2 or perhaps after Lance retires. No ones has offered any guess as to the other new Trek carbon frame to be released this year. Hmmmm...wonder what that could be: hint its not compact

The new frame display at L-B-L is nice. It looks very stiff. The seat stays look a little steeper but I can't really tell. Look at the size of the standard 5900 fork compared to the new frame WHOA!

Teo I want your job for Half the year!

On salary day or for the pro deal (laughs)? I have a mail into Lance's wrench now that the bike is public--he was holding out on me. Go figure, the guy gets a contract to work for Lance and he won't even give me any secrets....
Is it a titanium frame or a...QUiTSPiNiNArOuND

new time trial bike? Are you 100% sure there is a new frame to complement this frame for next year carbon110 or just speculation?

Is it just me, or does he have his seat kind of low? Looks like quite a bit of bend on the lower foot (I know it's not at the lowest point in the pedal rotation, but still) and the right leg looks like a sharper than 90 degree angle. Interesting. Does he always ride like that?

Akira,

I was admiring his conservative climbing position from this shot--notice how upright LA's sitting. I wonder at most of the guys I ride with on a weekly basis.

As for the bike, lots of sculpting--presumably the wheel base has been shortened. Also, I wonder if the rear seat stays are Trek's typical wishbone or has it gone back to the older, A-frame style stay. I love the CK headset; sure wish I could have gotten one on my 5900, but I've not had trouble out of the stock one, so . . . knock on wood.

Dang, this means I'm going to have to buy another frame, as well as a new component group.

Hm, under edit, the picture didn't come out--check out http://www.cyclingnews.com/ and check out the photos from Liege

... it illustrates what should be a basic tenet of cycling... whatever works for you!

I had my Klein out today... tweaking my position... saddle lowered a bit... and perhaps in a week... the stem/bar as well (it'll still have enough spacers beneath it to keep the stem police busy). At least... leaving it longish... gives me the option.

Be the bike.
Ok, all you Trek-o-philes, here it is:KG 361

Also notice the new D/A 10-speed components. FWIW-I think it's UGLY (the Trek). I'll keep my frog-machine =)

How's that bike standing there without a stand? Magic? Maybe there's some truth to the helium filled tubes rumors?
It's an optical dillusion =) ! nmKG 361

I've found nothing on the Graham Watson site. Does anyone have the direct link to the pictures on GW's site?

Thanks.
