Does anyone know....?
edited March 2010
Just brought an Trek Fuel EX8.
Do anyone know what the two hex bolts are for underneath the frame towards the chainset?
I thought it might be for some kinda bolt on protection guard...
Bottle cage or crudcatcher.
"As I said last time, it won't happen again."
For the bottom part of the of the frame near the BB?
They're pretty far down the tube so can't be for a crudcatcher must be for a bottle cage.
That attach the lower falange for the virtual pivot.
p.s. that is made up just in case you get worried
Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?
I had these on my old Trek Liquid frame. Think it was for a bottle cage as a mud catch would foul on the cranks I think. Seems like the stupidest place to put a bottle though as it will jsut get covered in mud!

Yep, they're for a bottle cage.
