I like it a lot! Nice subtle colour way, nice setup. Looks good and nothing too radical fit wise. I would probably turn the bars down a bit for my liking, but really nice. And no silly under the bottom bracket, proprietary or almost proprietary brakes. Win! What size is it. I'm guessing a 58 or 60 in an H2 fit?

I often don't like Treks but this is great
yes, but how much does it weigh?

Sorry, but I'm going to disagree with everyone. The Feng Shui is all wrong - Campy on a Trek? With a Specialized seat? All wrong. What you have here is a mid-level IT manager dating an Italian super model. No doubt it rides great, and shifts like a dream, but I'm one of those guys who prefers to see Campy hung on an Italian frame. I'd say the same about Red on a Pina or Colnago.
