Based on the threads, Trek is launching speculation and jokes. This could easily wind up being over-hyped and a let-down once it comes out as I suspect it will. If Trek were partnering up to do something really revolutionary I would have thought there would have been news releases announcing cooperation etc in the past with some company in the field. I also think advances in Carbon would first show up in planes and cars etc

Word from here is that it is some plant based fiber that is a cheaper and green alternative to carbon.

Yeah but the cost of the actual carbon in a $4000 frameset is a very small percentage of that $4000.

If it is flax Museeuw frames were using flax more than a decade ago.

Trek doesn’t have the rights to the LeMond brand name anymore.

guessing it is next gen OCLV tech. i believe OCLV came out 1992?
Trek used the same slogan "Everything Else Is History" on 31.05.2007 when was preseting "new OCLV" claiming "more than 15 years of OCLV Carbon engineering experience"

2007-15=1992 and 2007+12=2019 can be rounded to 30 years

Madone -- Everything Else Is History

WATERLOO, WI--(Marketwire - May 31, 2007) - In the all-new Madone, Trek Bicycle has taken its quest for perfection to new levels. Charged with creating the world's finest all-day performance bike, an army of engineers, designers, physicists, chemists, carbon producers, bike shop owners, project managers and riders spent the past two years elevating the Madone from elite racing cycle to the consummate performance experience. The result of their efforts is an exquisitely balanced machine that delivers a transcendental riding experience.

The road to Madone

The new Madone represents the largest design project Trek has undertaken on any bike, at any time. It was born from the expertise of seven consecutive Tour de France victories, more than 15 years of OCLV Carbon engineering experience and the input of Lance Armstrong and other world-class riders. The Madone underwent hours of FEA analysis, exhaustive real-world ride testing and 30 different lay-up schedules as engineers fine-tuned every detail of this ultimate riding machine.

The OCLV Carbon Line-up

OCLV Carbon is synonymous with unmatched ride quality. Long the Carbon market leader, Trek continues to outpace the competition with entirely new proprietary processes and patented fiber technology that combine to deliver an extraordinarily light and strong ride. The Madone is available in three different OCLV frames:
  • OCLV Red features the highest performing carbon fiber arranged according to the most complex lay-up schedules.
  • OCLV Black employs intermediate modulus carbon fiber and sophisticated lay-up schedules.
  • OCLV White uses predominantly standard modulus carbon fiber and delivers an outstanding value.

Obviously, it’s going to be a new $20,000+ bike. Duh.

When you realize that the "exquisitely balanced machine that delivers a transcendental riding experience" designed by "an army of engineers, designers, physicists, chemists, carbon producers, bike shop owners, project managers and riders" was... this:

Then you can see how credible such claims are.

Indeed, All the lance era Trek were horrible to ride, reasonably stiff but poor in term of feeling provided (felt dead), remember discussing this with Heras around 10 years ago.

Trek has partnered with Amgen.

The new Trek Pro Limited will come with a 10 year supply of Amgen's special "layup" additive which made the great Lance Armstrong's bikes so fast. The pros have used this secret layup additive for almost 30 years. Now anyone plunking down $9995 for a Trek Pro Limited frame and fork gets a 10 year supply of layup additive at no extra cost.

* Use layup additive at your own risk. Not for use in sanctioned competitions subject to WADA rules. Limitations and exclusions may apply.
