Don't know about the Trek, but another nice thing about the World Voyageur is it has a high BB that lends itself nicely to a 650B conversion. I converted my World Voyageur to 650B because it was just a little too tall with 27" wheels, but the result was so nice that I picked up another World Voyageur that would fit me with 27" wheels, but I may convert to 650B anyway.

Jerry Moos
