@eric, iirc the bontrager xxx lite was a replacement that trek sent out after they ran out of forks for the madden series. this seems to be the original OCLV version.

I had a bad crash on this frame in 2012 when the front fork broke (that's for another story.)
Sent the frame to Trek for them to inspect, they updated it to accept a standard headset and fork

I just found your post as I am searching of a spare part for the same bike frame as yours.
First congratulations for your bike, it looks really great. Nice work.
I bought the same bike in december last year, and unfortunately I broke the rear derailleur during a race 10 days ago. My concern is that the derailleur is directly attached on the frame on this bike. Therefore I technically broke the frame as well. Not by much just a bit of aluminium below the rear axle, but still the frame is technically broken. My local bike shop escalated to the Trek Company and Trek said they cannot fix this.
I may have another solution with an independant company which offer to fix bike frames, but they ask me to provide the aluminium part linking the 2 carbon tubes by the axle (I uploaded a picture of the broken aluminium part).
Do you have any idea where I could find such aluminium part ?
Thanks a lot.
