Thanks in advance

Thanks. So this is a real bike I can order? I was curious because my searching found no references to anyone actually having an XS on this sight, no shops that claim to have an XS in stock, and the trek website has no geometry for the bike (though I know it did as recently as last week). As always, appreciate the effort you put in here.

Will you guys sell that as a frame only or do I have to eBay it for that?
Are those water bottle cage bolts on the top tube? Damn that is skippy.
anyone know if Trek is coming out with a new (smarter?) draft box to eliminate wheel rub? Mine barely clears, and hits every time I go over a bump (which I try to avoid, but it's sometimes impossible). I know I'm lucky compared to some other owners on this forum who've experienced some serious wheel rub issues, but it bums me out to know there's a flawed draft box sitting on my otherwise flawless SC!!
The plan when we're home is to look at some options for getting the wedge off the front brake cable. Perhaps tinning the cable so it won't unravel, but can't do that on the bike and it may be difficult to feed the cable through the bars after adding solder. Some case bracing like those used in the S&S cases may be an option too.
As it is right now - to disassemble/reassemble this bike requires removing 3 small screws from the stem cap, the 4 base bar to stem bolts and the two small brake cover screws then finding a safe place for the fragile stem and brake cover pieces.
She loves the bike. Though that may change on the first trip she makes on her own!
P.S. Her SC has the same draft box problems with tire rub that others are complaining about. I am tool and parts limited this trip and have only tried electrical tape shimming options. The rubber inner tube fix mentioned in this thread is the next try when we get home. It is now off the bike as all shim options eventually resulted in case slippage and then tire rub.
