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.

  • 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.
