    I am just a dumb a$$ from the middle of the USA and am not confused by which is an old hybrid bike in the neighbor's garage, a Subaru car, past teams or a team associated with VW.

    Considering the Nov filing date I'll add Trek to a former and current US generals as finalists for the Nov 2012 butt clown of the month contest.

    Next thing you know Trek will be suing Curtis Mayfield for his previous use of "superfly". I think its good that Subaru has a chance to break their ties with Trek. Trek's poor quality does not fit the character of a brand like Subaru.

    Anyone remember the VW Jetta Trek? Certainly they're being asses, but if VW was interested in a partnership, I can see why Trek might think it's worth defending their trademark.

    Breaking news Subaru to discontinue sponsorship of Trek over petty lawsuit initiated by Trek. Subaru to consider counter-suing Trek for use of the Name Fuel as it might confuse individuals associating Trek bikes with Subaru cars.

    Back to our regular scheduled insanity.

    Just think... this sort of crap is part of what you pay for when you buy a retail car or bike.

    They deserve each other. Trek makes frames that break and provides shoddy warranty, Subaru on the other hand makes engines with leaking head gaskets.

    Oh yea, I owned a Subaru Outback.

    Did you build a time machine in the year 2004 and travel ahead 8 years to tell us this? Cuz the newer models don't have that problem anymore.

    Besides, a leaky head gasket is a rite of passage for a Subaru owner. They should make a Badge of Ownership for it

    Just to be the devils advocate. If trek doesn't vigorousely defend their trademark with Subaru, they will loose the right to defend it if someone actually infringes on it. For example, a competitive product from another bike company. It's ignorant but true.
    Just sayin'

    Of course "trek" was just a word before the bike company started using it. Subaru is backed by Toyota and Fuji Heavy Industrial, Trek will loss for lack of legal resources. Maybe they could working on making good bikes in the future instead of lawsuits.

    I work for the company that owns Powerbilt golf clubs. They have a line called "Grand Slams". Before I started working there they sued Denny's over their use of the name Grand Slam for their Grand Slam breakfast. We of course lost the case.
