|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?|

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.

|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?|
