I love it! So, 58H1... I think it looks great. Not sure what you didn't like about it from the get go. And how could you love any bike with brakes mounted under and behind the bottom bracket... ugh! Personally, I think the Emonda looks way better than your old Madone.
Couple of questions.... How do you rate the direct mount brakes? I haven't really gotten behind them yet, as they look just too industrial/prototypish aesthetically and I don't think they really offer any performance advantages over the top standard mount rim brakes. But you've had a good test of them now... what are your thoughts on this?
Oh, and did you do the build yourself? If so, how did you find the fit of the campagnolo crankset in the BB90. Did it slip in without much effort (slipfit), or did you have to help it out a bit with a couple soft taps of a rubber mallet (slipfit+
And one more personal question, so you don't have to answer of course, but do you mind me asking what you weigh, etc. I really like the Emondas geometry, but the ultra light weight of the frame kinda gives me cause for pause still. Although, I would likely trust Trek's offerings more than most others simply because you know it's been tested up the ying yang to destruction and failure points. But aside from that, how is it on a technical descent at speed, if you have that under your belt yet?
And while I'm full of questions, since I like it so much... do you have some fit measurements of your setup... like Saddle Height, Saddle to Bar Drop, Saddle nose to bars at stem, Saddle Setback... whatever you've got. I think it's nice to reference while looking at a nice build. And this is nice build in my opinion.
