In a press release issued to Trek dealers not long ago, Trek announced the following:
"As you know we have faced several challenges in getting the Aeolus ACC into full production. Each iteration has brought new hurdles we have tried to clear. At this time we have reached a point that we do not feel we can produce this product and attain our goal of Best in Class. We are therefore pulling this product from the line. We will continue to evaluate the best course of action to make a product that reaches our original parameters for this project. Until we have that course laid out, we feel it is best to withdraw the wheels from the line rather than continue to push orders off indefinitely."
I'm posting this here for a couple of reasons; 1) to tell you that this does not mean that any Aeolus 5.0 ACC's currently in the market do not meet Trek/Bontrager's standards. These will have full 5-year Bontrager Warranty coverage and are a fantastic product. 2) to tell you that if you've been considering getting a set - don't hesitate. These are now a rare commodity! I may very well miss out on getting a set myself (I want some badly!) because I haven't saved up my money for them yet. Find some and get them - you can't lose!
