Apparently the release date is sept 9th so I'm sure we're going to get an avalanche of information that day. Very curious of the supposed SLR. Haven't really seen much info on that trim.
Postponed to 20.9. Sadly

New Boone was released, today. I first got word of that bike coming out on July 30, which means it was live on the ordering system for 5-6 weeks before being announced. The CP opened up on the ordering system (in the US) on 8/20, so doing some math, I think that 9/30 date is likely when we'll hear about it. I just hope production ramps up in time for prime gravel season, next year.

Are the measurements concerning stack/reach including the headset top cap, or without?

They’re usually “as equipped” with the standard bar/stem/seat mast/saddle

This answer does not solve my question concerning stack/reach measurements of the frameset.

Interesting geometry, even the size 49 is longer than I normally ride.

My current gravel bike goes the other way with a shorter than normal reach compared to a road bike. I'm going to have to test some of these different ways of going about it and see what I think. I like the longer top on my MTB but haven't tried it on gravel.

Longer front is nice, longer rear not as nice.

The ALR seems very nice and is almost the same weight as the SL5. However, I wonder why Trek still has an alloy steerer on that model.

Isn't it a bit more fragile than a full carbon fork, and wouldn't it be more prone to catastrophic failure, especially riding off roads?

I would like to raise this question again.

Are the measurements concerning stack/reach are including the painted aero top cap of the headset?

Yes as that is not supposed to be optional, is needed to integrate the cables

But they compensate for the longer reach with shorter reach bars and stems, so you have a similar position, but wheel further forward, and better off-road handling.
