Obviously you never heard " Don't judge a book by it's cover."
What's your point? He never commented about anything other than the looks of the bike. When judging solely on aesthetics the “cover” is the only thing that matters. I’m impressed by the technical details of the bike, but other than that it looks like every other Trek out there for the umpteenth year in a row.
Armstrong isn't taking any chances, check this thing out!
DAMN!! Those wheels are pretty sweet, and the frame wow! Trek and Bontrager really have taken things up a notch, a BIG notch!
That is one sloooow bike
somehow that reminds me of the famous piece "The Gringo" in Santi Boteros Tour diary 2000:
"His smile said to me, ‘I was training while you were sleeping, Santiago.’ It also said, ‘I won this tour four months ago, while you were deciding what bike frame to use in the Tour. I trained harder than you did, Santiago. I don’t know if I am better than you are, but I have outworked you and right now, you cannot do anything about it. Enjoy your ride Santiago. See you in Paris.’"

Those who ignore histroy are doomed to repeat it.
Regarding the brand Trek, I don't find them very interesting but some available paint jobs make them look pretty okay. The only thing I really can't stand is anything with the name Bontrager on it....just doesn't sound right as a brand name.
Well when you do you can stop thinking about those candy apple paint jobs you only get from some euro manufacture like colnago etc, they have paint jobs like that to distract you from the lack of workmanship!!
have a ride on one and look at the technology, this i a production platform bike with of the shelf groupo, bars, stem, seat etc. You dont see one of these one peice seat and posts (very light mind you) which you would never be able to get comfortable on, but your allready on the weight limit for UCI use.
