I checked to see if there had been yet another tire clearance change for the Checkpoint on the Trekbikes.com website. And I found that . . . THE CHECKPOINT HAS BEEN TAKEN OFF THE SITE. When you do a search for gravel bikes, you get Crocket and Boone. No Checkpoints! When using the regular BIKES tab and GRAVEL or CHECKPOINT, nothing comes up for the Checkpoint. The CHECKPOINT tab is dead.
Trek Customer service says there will be no recall because the stock 35mm tire is perfectly safe on the bike. But for those of us who bought the bike based on their promise of 45mm tire clearance? So far . . . it's tough luck. "Buyer beware" is a tough way to respond to customers you deceived. This is not cool. Has anyone received any relief from your bike shop or from Trek?
