    Crapy Colors and proce increase!

    I was thinking about getting a GF Superfly SS frameset. The new colors on the Trek are awful and they increased the price about $600. Any shops out there that have a new large frame set in stock?

    It has sliders now too, no EBB.

    As for the SFSS, I am not sure why the price bump. Doesn't look like a tapered headtube, and I don't really see anything that changed.

    That new Sawyer is hot. It has a G2 rigid fork that folks have been wanting. Looks like it has sliding dropouts too. That would make a sexy singlespeed.

    Look again, the rear vertical dropouts are swingers. You can see the 2 screws clearly in the zoom view.

    I noticed the nev version of the wahoo disc(wahoo wsd in the "collection") has upgraded the brakes to hydraulics. I wonder if they are stepping the GF collection up a notch over the standard trek lineup?

    I am not all that familiar with "Promax" brakes. At least I have not seen the name around here before today.

    Anybody else notice that at the press conference Gary seemed to be blinking in Morse code? With a VCR recording and an an old Boy Scouts manual, I get his code as "h-e-l-p...h-o-s-t-a-g-e".

    Or maybe he just blinks a lot. But really, “They flushed my brand name down the toilet and told me to F myself on the 2011 colors. I love this strategy because I get a fat bonus check and how was I to know the hooker they sent to my room was under age?”

    LOL.

    Too bad it's the end of the line for fisher, Soon to be nothing more than treks 29er brand. I wonder what will happen with the team. Hope the riders aren't left without a ride for the next year.

    Glad to have my 09 hookoo and sad to see the end of the line.

    I wonder what Trek was thinking when they bought Bontrager, Lemond, Fisher, and Klein only to ultimately quit making these brands. I like Trek road bikes but I don't particularly like their mountain bikes.

    Team will go on as always. Gary and JHK addressed this on Twitter.

    I have lots of loyal fisher customers, and this idiocy is not going to please them. trek paint jobs, and a general trekified look to the frames, dropping the rigid town bikes.... what are they thinking? Many customers love the fact the bikes are bit different.... As a trek/fisher dealer this change really disappoints me. Its hard enough to sell 29ers in the UK and the look of this line-up is really not what I need right now. Seems that 29ers are doing so well in the US that trek want all the glory, this re-branding is bit of an insult to a mtb legend.......

    I don't much care about this change, but would kill (almost) for the new, built-in downtube "armor" on the 2011 Fly 100.
