Hello everyone, welcome to my thread.

This will most likely be slow updates to my current bike. Nothing too special but it is definitely a joy to ride.

After riding a 1.2, I found Trek's H2 geo suits me well and wanted to upgrade to a nicer frame but stay with aluminium.

I got this frameset at the end of 2015, built up for 2016 and it's seen a lot of abuse but looks like it will hold up until I'm ready to move onto carbon.

Now I'm a little more serious about climbing hills and would like to get below 7kg at a minimum, build will stay mostly the same but I would like to add a bit more bling.

For some reason I didn't take many good pictures of the bike.

Few more pics and build info over at http://www.pedalroom.com/bike/trek-emonda-alr-27540

Alright, so this is what I'm starting with

56cm Frame + bb 1248g

cut fork 343g

A few bits that I already have:

Image

Speedplay Zero 224g

Considering titanium axles, seen some on ebay but haven't looked into how reliable they are.

Image

Giro Empire SLX size 46 with speedplay cleats + insoles 614g

Image

DA9000 (11-28) 194g

May or may not use depending on where I'm riding (spent 9 months last year in Thailand)

Image

Wolf Tooth Road Link 16g

In case I need to use my 11-40 XT cassette, what do you think? Came in handy in Thailand lol

For speedplay axles, you might want to contact Ward ti spindles in the US. they make the spindles rather cheap, 50 dollar a pair iirc. You need to contact them, because the Speedplay spindles will not be available on the website.

Nice build. You can definitely drop some weight by switching out the RD to a DA9000 or even Ultegra, and ditching the 11-32 cassette. I only use that for my CX bike, and it's very heavy compared to a DA9000, 11-28 cassette. If you need more range than the 11-28, you can look at getting a R9100 11-30 cassette.

Thanks, will look into this.

My DA derailleur ended up getting broken hence the temporary 105 which ended up staying on for about 6 months. Looking for a used derailleur seeing as the rest of the groupset is already well worn.

In terms of the rest of the build I'm considering changing the finishing kit especially the seat post to something inline. I saw the 2017 mcfk seat post one build on here and thought it looked amazing. Also very tempted by an extralite stem but the zipp stealth isn't bad.

I've already had to change the bearings in the rear novatec hub twice but I think I will keep the wheels for now as I'll be traveling and they are fairly light for cheap alu.

No surprise that things didn't go as I planned. Obviously been a while since I updated this thread so I'll go through my phone pictures and see what might be interesting. Long story short, I got busy working before leaving for my permanent vacation lifestyle in Thailand. Forget rebuilding my bike, I didn't even clean it. Sorry if it turns into a personal blog, here goes:

Following on from the last picture posted, I'm sure I took some pictures of the weights but can't find them. Anyway here are the Bontrager XXX bottle cages I got on sale.

Image
Under 20g each

April. Made it to Thailand. Just know that I'm completely focused on riding now which is why there is a lack of weights but I will get back on that soon.

Image

After building my bike up, I wanted to replace the bearings in my rear hub. Sparing the details, it was beyond saving. Bike shop gave me no choice but to use this slightly heavier hub. STILL having similar problems.

Image

But it's all good, love riding here.

Image

May. Finally get round to "fixing" my bike. Not sure if mentioned but I rode my hoods to death. By the end of April they were both completely torn so they could be pulled off quite easily. Replaced hoods, bar tape, cables, chain and chainrings.

Vittoria Corsa Speed Tubeless tyres. Ended up taking them off last year and using whatever clincher tyre I had. So these were reinstalled again. No picture but I'm sure the weight was down to 7.19kg.

Before I forget, took a short trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This happened.

Image

Another disaster story. Did not have enough time to measure up the post on my bike, was about 10-20mm too short. My friend kindly exchanged it for the 420mm although didn't receive it until last week. Import tax to Thailand was painful..still worth.

So here are the rest of the disastrous happenings lol.

First ride after having the tubeless set up, get a massive cut on the back tyre. Can't inflate more than 60 psi. Inner tube goes in. Same happens to the front tyre after 1000km. Inner tube goes in. Back tyre gets shredded on a ride and I burn my spare and a mate's spare tube. Put my heavy clincher back on (it's a stock bontrager tyre, pretty bomb proof.)

Next, I reckon the saddle was too far back on the Zipp seat post, I endured hours of creaking, mistakenly ignoring it. Took the seat post out to regrease, torqued to 5 Nm. 5 mins later I notice this. Yes that crack goes all the way around.

Image

Wheels are defo on their way out. Changing the hub must've affected the spokes somehow. This one has broken twice...funnily enough was on the same road both times. Front hub bearings have finally gone as well. So now have done about 40km total on that wheel with a missing spoke.

Image

Honestly considering a silly light carbon tubular wheelset but it is rainy season here so probably not the most sensible idea. Think I will hold out until I return to the UK anyway.

Also to add the bad luck, my stages was not working with my garmin. Thankfully the renown Stages support team sorted me out with a warranty unit. Only a week without a power meter, could've been worse.

Image

So that brings us to the end of June. MCFK seat post in. new seat post collar is KCNC, hated it at first, very bulky compared to Carbon-Ti but I think it's still light and the colours kind of match the frame accents. Rear tyre is now a Michelin Pro 4. With inner tubes and a lighter seat post, the weight must be around 7.2 but at the moment I don't really care. Having too much fun riding.

Girlfriend got a matching bike too, will post some updates on that later. Hopefully that wasn't too much for you guys, kudos if you read it all. Till next time.

Also re: 11-28 DA cassette. Brought mine with me but really need the 32 for the hills here. Will put it on when I weigh my bike just for that extra 100g saving. Also speed play cleat covers...*f##k* keeping losing them on rides. Maybe 4 or 5 times I had to backtrack to find it on the floor. Today I lost one for good though, RIP.
