This doesn't help you, but I noticed the same thing on an 09 Fly last year. I demoed it when the Trek/Fisher demo rolled through. They just had picked up the 09s and the Superfly I rode was doing the same thing. One question, how much do you weight?
Oohh and I also noticed that when the chain is nice and clean and lubed the "noise" it is far less pronounced......Big T42 said:My 09 SuperFly does the same thing. I have a Stumpjumper Pro CF and a Scott RC-10 CF as well and they all do the same thing under load.
The CF frame seems to resinate and amplify the sound so it sounds worse than it is. Both bike are fine so I just live with the sound.....
Dude, there's been a service bulletin out about the 09 RXL's since April 29th. Check it out. The early runs have a freehub bore issue along with the grease thing.Brewboy74 said:Yup it was the pawls. The grease in there looked like a mix of concrete and mud, disgusting stuff. Replaced it with some Phil Wood oil. It also looks like the spring/lock ring that holds the pawls in place wasn't working properly. A little adjusting and it is better. I will find out this evening, I'm going for a nice long ride. If it is still doing it we will get the wheel warantied.
I guess I work part time for an unreputable one......thanks for the underhanded comment. I appreciate the info just not the manner you delivered it. I will check and see if we recieved that particular service bulletin.........jason745 said:Dude, there's been a service bulletin out about the 09 RXL's since April 29th. Check it out.

If anyone else here has this problem, just bring it into your Trek dealer (a reputable one, that is). We know about it. You shouldn't have to be dealing with this yourselves.
