Trek Fuel EX
Cyclingnews.com has a preview of the new Trek Fuel EX.

Last year’s ‘R1′ evolution of Trek’s simple-but-proven single pivot suspension designs was certainly a step in the right direction. However, those improvements probably should have been made years ago, and the upgrades essentially just brought Trek up to about even with its competition rather than create truly innovative product, at least in terms of suspension design.

With that being said, the new Madone wasn’t the only thing Trek had on hand at last week’s product launch. The company will hold its full mountain bike-specific introduction in just a couple of weeks’ time, but some items were apparently deemed ready enough to show off a bit early.

One of the first fruits of Trek’s hiring of suspension guru Jose Gonzalez from Manitou is the new Fuel EX trail bike platform. At first glance, things don’t look all that different from before, but, as they say, the devil is in the details…

Gary Fisher Superfly
Cyclingnews.com also got a picture of Gary Fisher’s Superfly. The Superfly is a hardtail carbon 29er! She’s a beauty with Genesis 2.0 geometry.

What’s this we have here? Why, it looks like a production sample of Gary Fisher’s new 29″ Superfly frame, which weighed just 1.23kg (2.71lb) on our scale
