Did KfC have any need for the 34t chainring, coupled with that relatively wide range in the rear cassette? I didn't watch the race or know the course but have a hard time imagining her needing to drop to the smaller ring, on nearly any cyclocross course.

@cyclocross Are you getting paid by Trek to advertise in editorial form? Seems like they've been name checked an inordinate amount lately.

@gasperakNope. Not that we would turn down ad dollars from anyone who makes a cyclocross bike, but money doesn't buy product editorial or reviews. Never will either. A really innovative bike + signing of Nys + first time to look at it in person is why we've given them so much free press. Most readers seem to appreciate it, especially this one: http://www.cxmagazine.com/sven-nys-trek-bicycle-cyclocross-2014-how-it-happened Thanks for the question!
