Everyone knows that most consumers generally love the progression of bicycle technology almost as much as bicycle companies love feeding into the publicâ€™s insatiable appetite for that newness. Even jaded cycling journalists, used to being offered all sorts of Kool-Aid by companies big and small, still tend to get excited with the simple fact that new product is afoot.
Weâ€™ve seen some interesting upgrades to all of Trekâ€™s mountain bike line this weekend. The new features weâ€™ve seen promise to build upon, and extend, Trekâ€™s success with their whole line. The suspension has been tweaked to make it feel better and the carbon fiber manufacturing process has been improved to strengthen and lighten-up the frames. And on and onâ€¦
The more significant news here in Altaussee, aside from the fact that epic Salzkammergut Trophy mountain bike race was cancelled today mid-race because of snow, rain and wind, is that Trek has brought the carbon goodness of their OCLV to their Remedy line. Thus, the world now has a Trek OCLV all-mountain rig: the Remedy OCLV.

Iâ€™ll have more details for you (and the bikes and the rest of the weekendâ€¦and my wacky adventure getting here) when I get back and actually have time to sit down and write a little bit. Until then, hereâ€™s some more photos from the day, including the new Remedy OCLV, which was announced less than two hours agoâ€¦
