Trek's trombone-shock Supercaliber may hold the record for the worst kept secret in the history of cross-country competition. Jolanda Neff raced it in all but one World Cup this year with its Fox-made "IsoStrut"
modestly covered by a stretchy Spandex sports bra until its official launch after the MSA World Championships.
PB photographer Matt Delorme met up with Trek Factory Racing mechanic Matt Opperman to have a look at Neff's machine and discuss some of her ideas about setup and component selection.
