    difference between cake 3 dlx and cake 3 dlx gs?

    I was just wondering, because I was looking at the specs on the site, and it looks like the only thing different is the paintjob. Anybody know? Also, what about the approx. weight of say a medium 3 dlx?

    Well my understanding is that the GS (Genesisters) models of bike including the Cake 3 Dlx GS come in smaller sizes and seat configurations and the geometry is slightly different from the standard bikes to fit women better. About the weight question, Trek keeps weight of bikes pretty close the chest and is not likely to change any time soon. I have a 04 Cake 2 and it comes in around 27 Lbs. the Cake 3 Dlx would most likely come in heavier as it has Disc brake and beefed up rims.

    Look at the specs in the back of the catalog, and you can see the differences on the GS versions.

    Check out this month's Dirt Rag for a review of the GS Cake.
