    jode, depending on which way the Mino Link is oriented, the seat tube angle is 71.9 or 72.5 degrees. It's steep enough to maintain traction on climbs.

    Nice feature Vital. BTW - is it just a coincidence that the Slash green/black and Vital's color scheme are identical?!? I'm going to start calling this bike the Slash Vital.

    Did trek REALLY "think ahead to protect your investment' I tend to think more that Trek learned from the massive mistake they made with the first sessions and now realizes that a bike to be ridden like the slash or session needs a downtube guard.

    All in all however really good looking bike.
