    2011 Superfly 100 with 11 DESIGN changes

    My LBS said that the new Trek Superfly 100 has 11 design changes but they were not clear on what those changes were. Does anyone have the inside scoop?

    edit: ooops, this info is for the hardtails...I do not think there were any major changes on the 100's. Could be carbon layups and a few other items?


    The list for the HT updates:

    Tapered Head tube
    Press fit bearing bottom bracket (same now as SF100 and madones)
    Rear drop outs.
    seatpost "cluster" I think has changed (where top tube and seat stays meet)
    post mount front der

    others?

    Saw them at the Suburu Cup race. They looked killer!

    well for one of those eleven design changes they should really look into making a frame that lasts at least one full season.
    moving the line to a full trek presents deal....... aint going to help. trek fuels hardly last a season as well.
    a super anal, careful, and midwest rider broke so many treks he had enough and went to the superfly 100. guess what?cracksville.
    Light is great and all but how about not having the consumer do your failure tests? a lifetime warranty is fine but i would prefer not to use it more than once a month.

    One design change on the 100 is a lightly "armored" downtube, similar to what is used on the Remedy. Small, but nice, change. I could dispense with the helicopter tape I've got on my downtube.

    Great product and fit perfect on my Fly100. Has saved my downtube from many rock chips.

    geometry was adjusted to take into account the 100mm forks on the HT's from what I understood.
