Gary Fisher’s busy tweeting bike photos from Trek World Europe, but the show stoppers from Trek’s Gary Fisher collection look to be a 896g Superfly SL 29er hardtail and the 1,850g Superfly 100 SL full suspension bike (above).
According to Freerider.ro, the Superfly 100 SL will be available in two trim levels, a Pro SL with SRAM XX and an Elite SL with XT. Visually, the only striking difference is that the upper pivot for the linkage arm is moved backward to the corner of the top- and seat tubes. Current models have it placed on the top tube about 2-3 inches in front of the seat tube. That, and the headtube junction looks a bit larger, but it could just be this image.
The Superfly hardtail moves the rear brake inside the rear triangle but otherwise looks similar. It’ll be interesting to hear the frame tech that let them drop grams over the current (non SL) models. The same two trim levels (XX, XT) will be offered here, too. Above photos from Trek Romania via Freerider. All pics below from Gary Fisher.

The Rumblefish is their 12omm travel 29er all-mountain bike and uses Trek’s ABP concentric rear axle/pivot. We’re diggin’ the custom green Fox fork and trim. Other than colors, we can’t tell what’s changed on these.
