Saw pictures of this a while back and fell in love with the design, I hate the fact it's Trek, but it means it's go a lifetime warranty :)

Here's some early shots, straight out the box, things will change quite a bit, firstly to SS ride and then over to belt drive

First will be the bars, got a nice set of Jones that will work well and then a few other "tweaks" :wink:

Love the retro style with some nice modern touches

Oh well, it got ridden about 50 feet as a standard build and then stripped down :shock:

Now sporting Jones bars, White industries wheels a nice Ti post, just need to find a Single speed chain and we are good to go :wink:

updated photos to follow

... frame is a 19" and TT measures 24", feels real nice after it's fifty foot ride :lol:

Yeah, been waiting for it since before Christmas

Not many in the UK and believe they will only do the one run of them

I know where there is a Medium if somebody is keen :wink:

Very cool, I thought the same when I first saw them, whether I could get over the trek bit. Can't wait to see the new pics :)

so would a 17.5 inch 29er be the same fit as a 26er? Really like the look, probably the first Trek I have lusted after - I keep telling myself it is a Fisher :)
