It's been a while. I had to reconcile myself to buying a battery directly from the manufacturer in China. Finally did so last friday. I will be waiting for at least another week for the battery to arrive. It is a 15ah36v lithium polymer unit which should be pretty much "state of the art". Spent a little more time on the bike. The fenders are plastic but they are not flimsy and I think they look good. Got some Ritchey grips for it, too. Still have some parts left over. We will see how that plays out down the road.
Couldn't help adding a couple of items to the Trek. Nephew Steve laid a computer on me so I installed it and a rack. I really like this machine, too much time and money in it, but it fits me and rides real nice.
