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

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.
