    Some interesting stuff. Wonder how well the press fit bearings into carbon lugs will work out. The "seat mast" is a new one for me, nifty though. I've got to point out that the HS and BB bearings are not a new idea, old Klein anyone?

    The bearings in the headset and bottom bracket slide in place without the need for pressing per the Trek website. I also do not believe Trek is stating the integrated bearing seats are a new idea but by using it it allows for other dramatic improvments on stiffness and strength.
    I think they are fricken cool and I can't wait until the local shop gets theirs built up this week.
