Yeah Trek pretty much had to pay retail for the rims, tires, and hubs on the 1st gen which I'm sure helped to hike up the price. Now with sourcing their own bits it seems like it is bringing the price down.Yeah, that's a pretty big price drop between Gen 1 and Gen 2 Farley. I saw the Gen 1 Farley in a bike shop, and I thought it dead sexy. I wonder if there will be any other changes besides rims/tires?
Umm...those pics are just renderings, hence the radial lacing (and no chains).Found these without too much poking around:
TREK FARLEY 8 :: £2300.00 :: BIKES :: Fat Bikes :: Evolution Cycles Eastbourne Sussex
TREK FARLEY 6 :: £1300.00 :: BIKES :: Fat Bikes :: Evolution Cycles Eastbourne Sussex
Wheels do look radially laced, Bontrager hubs and tires on both.
When I see that color green it reminds me of the late 80's in my youth. Santa Cruz Slasher, Slimeballs Wheels, and Slimer from Ghostbusters. Man I used to love that green!Real pic of Farley 8. Looks loads better than the artist's rendering imho. I didn't like the green at first, but it's grown on me after seeing the real thing. Still no actual pics of Farley 6 to be found. I'll probably still prefer the black and blue, but I what I need is Bluto.

Yeah, I've been wondering why the Bonty wheels here on the Bluto model and the SunRingle on the rigid model. Wouldn't it be cheaper for Trek to use their own rims vs. going outside? Would like to hear more about those wheels.The rims are kinda cool, there is a deep extruded ridge sticking out of the center where the spoke holes are.
