Sorry for the bad quality pics, my only camera at the moment is my Mobile.... so better pictures will come soon!

Not ultra light but 7,05 Kg including Pedals, Cages, Sensors and Computer is ok... Next upgrade will be white hoods for the double taps. Hope you like it! :mrgreen:

I am not the biggest fan of Treks either but the understated silver and white paint looks really good. A perfect example of less is more. Nice ride

Even though I live in Trek country here in Wisconsin and see literally hundreds of these, I definitely dig this bike. Lots of nice personal touches that make it stand out--the wheels, the bars/stem, and saddle are a nice change up from the typically stock Bontrager spec that is usually seen. It looks all business!

Looks great. I am a Trek fan and you made a good choice on your bike (But, I guess that would be expected from a Trek Fan to say). Look into the new Aeolus 3 tubies, only 1100g and handmade to bring down that weight. Hope you have many great miles on it!

Looks great. A quick question for you, if you don't mind:

What saddle clamp did you use for that S-Works Toupe? I've got a Madone 6.9 with a Bonty RXL saddle but would prefer the Toupe, which is what I ran on my old bike. The carbon Toupes have oversized rails 7x9 and I think Trek has an oversized clamp now (I'm using the standard 7mm). Did you use the oversized clamp or the standard one?

Also, how do you find the S-Works for longer rides? I've always preferred less padding and the S-Works Toupe seems like it might fit the bill.

Thank you.

You can order the 7x9 clamps from your Trek dealer. If you´ll use the normal clamp you will probably damage the rails!!

For me the Specialized Romin is much better, i already changed back to this saddle and sold the Toupe. I also tried the Tune Komm Vor+ and the Selle San Marco Regale, for me the Romin is the best saddle, even if it is 80g heavier than the S-Works.
BUT:
There are also some new wheels on the way :twisted: , they will save around 400-500g so i dont care about the 80g more of my Romin Team.... :)

WIll post some new pics this Weekend...
