Spotted: the New Trek Speed Concept

Trek launched its new Speed Concept bike suddenly, without warning, and without much fanfare. In fact, virtually none of its major pro athletes are currently riding the bike, even though the bike is officially available for purchase already. When we saw this brightly-colored jewel sitting in the transition racks at the 2013 edition of Boulder 70.3, we couldn't resist getting a closer look. After looking up the race bib, it turns out this bike was being ridden by Ben Delaney, editor for Bike Radar. He's almost certainly working on his own review of this particular bike, but I'm still waiting for mine to arrive. So I figured there was no harm in taking a few photos of Bem's sample and let you fine readers know what's going on with Trek's most beautiful piece of triathlon hardware. Enjoy.
