    They dropped cuz it is a verry verry expensive bike. it retails for 6500cad...ouch.
    I got mine for 2100 as a demo bike(full bike not just frame)
    i love working for a shop.
    The frames are the exact same, it was just the build, the freeride was set with 2 rings upfront etc etc......."freeride"

    they are beautifully constructed frames thought, Trek went all out as far as structural design but unfortunatly its more than what people expect from Trek. I heard Trek was trying to unload them stupid cheap to their retailer employees, i bet they took a huge loss on those things.

    pic of the frame (02's)

    I visited my LBS and took this picture the other day. I like the 02's than the 03's. The glass beaded and anodized finish looks cool and it's super durable as well. Cheers.
