My wife has a 2006 OCLV Fuel EX 9.5, the frame is beautiful, it has this organic quality like it was grown rather than made. I've always liked them, I'd love a first generation hardtail, or even a 9.8. The OCLV Ys were good looking bikes too, whatever their other failings.

All that said, not really retro.

So.........erm.................not cool.

Normally speaking Trek is pretty uncool BUT we are specifically talking about OCLV frames then thats a different story.

In my opinion the OCLV hardtails are a thing of beauty as are the road frames and they work and lots of races both on and off road have been won on them. Sure the monutain frames were a little fragile in some hands but so were many other race frames.

OCLV is cool even though Trek isn't
