    ah haha, thats awesome, but yeah, I agree, probably not a mistake, they're trying to suggest you stop being such a pvssy and just pin the line.

    Wow, I'm surprised that made it to the web.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    That's funny. A friend of mine I race with worked on that frame, but he's a roadie. I sent that to all my friends at Trek

    The angle of the banjo on the rear brake is **** too. But how do you not realize the rotor isn't even inside the caliper?!?

    Probably because they built one wheelset and then moved it between bikes for pictures.

    Is there a bike in their line that uses the same front wheel but a 7" rotor?

    Looks more like the adapter is upside down. I agree, the rear hose routing is garbage also. Great marketing shot.
