What does Trek have up it's sleeve for 2008? John Burke, President of Trek Bicycle Corporation, has already leaked to dealers that 2008 will mark the first change in the OCLV bike platform in nearly 15 years. There have been rumors spread for a couple of years that they were working working on custom geometry (which I secretly had wished they'd consulted with me on...). Well, these photos from an uncredited source might shed some light on the subject.
I'll go on record verifying that the gentleman pictured is a Trek Engineer, I've met him. Another picture also shows him inspecting the bike with Team Discovery retiree Viatcheslav Ekimov. The graphics on the wheels and stem are also new enough to be current product, too new to be an old project. So, are we going to see a super-light, compact-geometry Trek OCLV bike for 2008? We'll soon find out...Trek has a way of revealing new products at the Tour de France in July. I wonder how many spy photos will creep out before then...?
