I'm just failing to see the point, and not one serious rider will by that thing, I would love to have one if it was given to me but what could I do with it?
The gearing is to high to climb my hill, heck its to high for lance armstrong to climb my hill. You couldnt race it because again in road racing youd die with out gears, its not MTBing where you can learn to deal on a SS. Lastly even if you lived in a flattish area and werent racing it, you couldnt even commute on it unless you had a very safe place to store your bike, that bike would be stolen in 10 minutes left unattended anywhere in a city.
SO again I am stating I love the bike, and its pretty badass but its utterlly the most pointless thing ever made.
I am functional bike snob, IM a beater 150 dollar downtube shifted chromoly job has more purpose and value than the trek could ever have.
