Has anyone bought a Trek bike that has an allen screw on the back of the seat tube behind the bottle cage bosses and no chain stay bridge? I assume the screw is for fixing the rear mudguard but can't find any information or a mudguard that utilises the screw. There are mudguard eyes on the frame.
Anyone got the answer to this?
Lexa SLX C 2012 - but it looks like all the 2012 Treks in that sort of price range have the same thing.
What about these ?
And there may well be a product specifically... in the USA
Dave - I don't know the problem Evans had was the clearance on the front forks so maybe not.
Popsider - yes it's usually in the chainstay bridge but there isn't one on this bike-bridge that is..

I've emailed Trek USA but I'm not holding my breath.
Popsider-yes that's the sort of thing only it's above the top bottle cage bolt so about 100mm higher up.
Dave-hopefully they'll come back with the answer soon and it won't be speak to your dealer.
Cougie I dare say it can be made to work but I can't help thinking that if trek market the bike as taking guards then it should.
Dave it's been a dry winter but we've got the summer to come yet.
Trek have told Evans, who have told me, that there IS a mudguard made to fit the fittings on this bike, and they have ordered a pair for me.
We shall see.
