Trek Concept Speed Concept 9 Series

The brake housing on the Speed Concept is literally unexposed from the levers to the calipers. The shift housing is exposed under the extension to allow for easy length adjustment and then they are quickly concealed until re-entering the frame behind the stem. The Trek does not have a cable guide system within the frame so routing the cables is fairly difficult.
