Yes it is pretty much exactly the same as the treks apart from the top tube length and decals obviously.

we need a comparison with a trek oclv. if the top tube is longer and fork rake the same and its the same size frame. that would mean the wheel base is longer unless the seat tube has a shallower angle right ? but is the head and seat tube angle parellel.. We need proper diagrams to investigate this or two frames laid flat and used as templates.
I suspect , if the top tube is longer its more likely to be 10 or 15mm this is important otherwise some one could
do a fake with a us post type.
