    Is HIFI 2011 frame compatible with ABP 12x142mm rear axle?

    I'm wondering if ABP convert 12x142mm rear axle is compatible with HIFI 2011 frame. I know Trek gets started to equip FUEL EX and REMEDY with this ABP system. Does anybody think of that?

    No. 2011 HiFis are ABP Race, not compatible with ABP Convert.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    WEll, it's truely a sort of, and is it worth the money. If you could some how talk trek into giving you the part number to the rear traingle, you could bolt that to your bike.

    Sure, but it'll cost you a few hundred. I pulled it off with my 2010 RF with a warranty on the swingarm; only paid for the seatstays and hardware, and it was still pricey. You'd almost be better off selling what you've got and buying a 2012.
