Product Review: Speed

No not some sort of pharmaceutical grade Mountain Dew inspired trip......but wind cheating, internally cable routed, OCLV, integrated brake, Kamm Tail aerodynamically equipped, wicked ass bicycle speed.

This not in production 2011 Trek Speed Concept paid me a visit at work this week at Wheat Ridge Cyclery. This bike is just like the bike that Lance and Contador rode at Le Tour 2009 and that Chris Lieto set the Kona Ironman record bike spilt on. Basically, it sounds like this bike alone will take like an hour off my Ironman bike split time....haha.

More details on why this bike is so important coming shortly.

sure, technologically advanced, but they didn't quite optimize the graphics space--they missed the opportunity to add another Trek decal on the seatmast.

What type of bike is it?

2011 Trek Speed Concept is the name.....and yes......way way overboard on the logos.

With all the Trek stickers I missed the K-Swiss one -- sweet! Nothing like sponsorship from a company most famous for circa 1995 sneakers.

On the other hand, maybe this worked: I had no idea that K-Swiss was still around, and now I do, so I suppose this is an advertising 'win'.
