Sweet flashback... guess this is what passes for old-skool now in the Carbon Era. I almost got one of those back in the day, but then one of my buddies went out and got one first so I didn't want to look like a copycat and had to one-up him instead, so I saved up a little while longer and got a Dean carbon (even though they were mostly known for Ti frames, they had a brief run built from Kestrel blanks). One of the officers on our ship at the time had the 2500 version too (i think ~ same frame, but the Dura-Ace trim).
Whoa, that brings back memories! Thank gawd for that Trek sponsorship back then, because I couldn't afford to keep replacing frames when the tubes seperated from the lugs. Look, don't get me wrong, it was a great bike for the time (Look & Time may have been better but I never rode either), but Trek hadn't mastered bonding lugs and carbon. I rode several 2500's in black/grey (Dura Ace) and 2300's in Black/blue (Ultegra). One of my 2500's weighed just over 16 lbs. in a 52cm, which was lite for that time.
