    Anyone know the exact type of aluminum used in the 2010 fuel ex9 frame? Frame says "alpha" but that is no help....

    Thanks,

    Apparently specifics on exact grade of Trek Aluminum is like Fort Knox, well protected.
    My Transport comes with "Alpha Gold" which doesn't tell you exact grade but does tell you it is double butted and cold extruded. But much like bike weights, Trek don't like math(or specifics).
