    Got my eye on one of them too. According to my LBS, they should start being available in the US in December. Not sure about overseas.

    ^^This, and although highly subjective, I hate the color scheme and in usual Trek fashion that's the only choice you get. For the record, I own a Trek 29er. I really wish they'd offer a subdued color scheme on all their bikes in addition to whatever crazy stuff the designer picks.

    +1 I love everything about the bike except the purple. I too wish they offered a subdued color option.

    They do a color scheme on the Domane road bike that would only require changing the graphics, and IMHO is pretty hot.

    I think the idea of a decently priced, ready to go, AL framed rigid SS is a good one...but they should have just called this on the Rig...

    They prob didn't call it the right because the rig had so much negative press from the bad rear dropouts

    Wonder how it will compare with my Carve 29er sl. Should be cool to see how that shakes out.

    What year? From the research I have done, I think it will be a couple pounds lighter stock vs stock.

    I'm wondering if the trek will be convertible to 1x10 with those horizontal dropouts... That's a huge selling point to to the crave. How does the chain tensioner work on the crave?

    Am I seeing the tensioner correctly? What is the point of the chain tensioner on the back, pushing the axle forward? Other than functioning as a stopping point? Do you have to pull the wheel back By hand?

    I would be willing to bet there is an insert that the bolt threads into and the axle slides through that would add tension as you thread it in and prevent it from moving forward under a heavy pedaling load.

    Of course that is how it works. Common people.

    EBB style works pretty well for me. I just swapped out the stock bolts for steel. I really haven't had any issues. I can get at least 3 cogs worth of tensioning, if not 4 without messing with the chain length.

    Just looked at one today. 20lbs without pedals. Raceface Narrow/Wide chainring (why?) and cranks. No routing for dropper. Very interesting sliding rear brake design. Welds are ground down smooth. VERY purple all over.
    I don't care what you ride or how you ride just as long as you ride.

    I know! I was seriously considering it but really had to pause when seeing the color. My wife said it was pretty.
