Are you going to be fitting a power meter?

Maybe in the future but I'm training with cadence not power at the moment which I get on well with.

I'd either go for the Quarq upgrade or a stages crank if they do a new red exogram one.

My saddle arrived today. Fabric ALM Shallow Airbus carbon.

I am already using a Fabric Flat Pro Scoop saddle on my CAAD10 and get on with it super well. I was originally going to go one up on that and get the Ultimate version for my Emonda build. But this ALM came up for a price I couldn't resist so I thought i'd try it out.

Grey Fabric logo on the top of the saddle.

Came out at 149g on my scales.

Awesome build. I have the same frameset and love it. For the record, this is not the 5g vapor colorway--it's the standard matte black scheme. The vapor colorway would drop the weight further.

Thanks a lot! What sort of weight is your build? I can't wait to ride it.

I see now after some more hunting around the vapour coat shows a lot of the carbon, I see it's the SLR 9 so in between painted fully and vapour. Thanks for the heads up :oops:

Thanks very much! I just want to get it looking more like a bike now and not a load of jigsaw pieces.

Awsome build - but why din't you bought the Quarq to go with .... best investment I did was buying a Powermeter.

Thanks very much!

I'm not fussed with getting a power meter at the moment, for me i'm training just fine with cadence and don't think i need to make the jump just yet. I can always go for it in the future, if i did everything i wanted to the build in one go i'd only get bored of it quicker :lol:

Also the Quarq 172.5mm GXP for red etap crank is pretty much sold out everywhere right now.

Awesome build... I'm not generally a Trek fan at all, but this bike looks pretty sweet and it seems like you're putting together a nice package with it.

I've seen you mention a couple of times in the thread the you're training with cadence... I don't understand how this works at all. Cadence doesn't represent any sort of workload and is completely variable based on the gear you select. I train with power and think its great, but I could see how someone might use heart rate or even simply speed to train, but I can't seem to figure out how you'd use cadence specifically, for training. Can you elaborate?

Thanks! This is my first trek, I do love the new madone too.

More so on the turbo, holding set cadences for blocks at different gears. And on the road doing a lot of mixed cadence for the winter miles, higher gears/lower cadence on the hills and lower gears/higher cadence on the flats. I still use my HRM on every ride.

I'm not saying power wouldn't be a better choice but I can't justify it at my level right now, and the cost.

Little update. Things are starting to come together.

Waiting on chain and tape to arrive. Also i need a different seat rail clamp as it doesn't fit my carbon rails on the ALM saddle.
