just popped into my lbs this morning and they have the 09 trek ex8 in stock, it looks amazing! i have started saving already!

the spec looks same as this years but slx instead of lx and rhythm wheels instead of racelight. pretty good upgrades for only £100 extra.

anyone taken one for a test ride?

    Hopefully they have fixed the issues at the rear end:

    My mate was interested in getting a new TREK EX-8. Lovely bike but went snap on the seat stay by the rear disc/hub, on it's 1st real outing, mainly XC & some steps!!! A durable bike? Not on this evidence

    The rear triangle breaking only occurred on some bikes and was down the a mis welded brake mounts. If you look on MTBR forums there are pics of both welds.
