The one I seen was tan with black & gold. Regular IsoSpeed and 105 would make it a S5.

I know details are limited on this bike, but how do you think it will stack up to the warbird? I was getting ready to buy one but had been waiting to see what Trek was coming out with since my local shop is primarily a Trek house.

Some more info for those wondering...
2 aluminum models (both shimano equipped)
2 carbon “SL” models (105 and Ultegra equipped) with front and rear isospeed, stranglehold dropouts and offset chainstays similar to that of Open UP

The high end carbon model is black on black.

Select dealers will be getting first peaks next week but everyone is under strict no pictures disclosures for the next few weeks so don’t plan on seeing one unless someone is really brave.

It would have been nice to see one with a Sram Force 1x group IMO.

Did anyone who had a chance to see the bike, weigh it?
Also, I got word that they should be offered to dealers around the 20th of February and that the Ultegra equipped version will sell for $3500.

I hope that's true as I heard it will be $4000. And I heard the release/ordering date will be the 22nd and available for delivery by 3/1.

I decided to hold out to at least see the new Trek.  I am hoping it's worth the wait.  Getting close!

Word on the gravel is $1700 starting for the aluminum (no IsoSpeed but has Stranglehold) and the high end carbon runs $3800.

Still no front IsoSpeed on their alloy frames? Disappointing!

Unfortunately I just heard the carbon ones will not have front ISO speed either. Can we rename it the disappoint? Yes, that's unfair without seeing it but a major disappointment if this is true.

If it is 650b compatible (high volume tires), I'm not sure how much Isospeed matters to be honest.  When you look at bikes like the Open Up, Norco Search XR, Moots Routt 45, etc., everybody raves about how comfortable those bikes are and how nice they ride and none of them have an Isospeed or Futureshock system.  They all have room for super wide tires and rims though.

It will have an elevated chainstay like the Stache to support tire clearance up to 48x700, larger for 27.5, only isospeed on the seatpost.


I'm not sure I'm a fan of the Iso Speed on the front.  Really liked the rear isospeed on my 2017 Boone 9, can't say I've really noticed the front isospeed on the 2018 boone 7 or the new Domane.

It will be 650b compatible.

I agree. Running 40c on my aluminum frame CX bike and it rides smoother than my carbon road bike.

Assuming you *want* a 650b bike. I run 700c because I ride a good bit of (poorly) paved surfaces and packed gravel and limestone.

That said, I have no doubt this will be a good bike for Wisconsin. Miopic Trek strikes again. All that seems to be missing is one of their patented color-blind paint schemes.

To each his own definitely, but this pretty much sums up what I was referring to:

Me too. Been shopping for a couple months now and almost bought an SL 5 Gravel but had heard Trek had a new one in the works. I hope it’s not tan as mentioned above.

Most shops should have them March 1st.  The higher end carbon will be matte black.  

As I said earlier, there won't be front isospeed, just rear. Chainstay drops like the OPEN up Clearance for 700x45

Cool, still no pictures though?  That seems weird.  Maybe it's because it's  a gravel bike and not something that a pro will be riding.... Even Specialized teased photos of the new Diverge before it was released though.

I know how much Trek loves their iso-speed... Makes me wonder why the new bike isn't equipped with it up front. If any of their bikes deserve it, I would think that this would be the one.
