Aren't soft-tail MTB's widely regarded as the worst of both worlds? Lack of stiffness and response, no true suspension.
Maybe if they could get away from Shimano seatposts and actually use a carbon post, or maybe just use a bigger tire. That frame seems like a HUGE compromise, and I really wouldn't be into riding it, for any reason. I'm not the one getting paid to ride it, however.
Seems like a really, really ugly year for pro-bikes, short of the Times, as always.
ugly yes (like most trek´s) but do you really think that a rider like hincapie would ride a bike that performs as badly as you claim? i dont think so...
Can't be that bad. Hincapie rode 2nd in last years Paris-Roubaix on the very same frameset!
