Ola WWs,

Last week I have placed my new race bike for season 2015 on order. After having thought long and hard I decided on a Trek Emonda SLR P1.
I was able to get a sweet deal with my LBS and therefore went with the SLR frame (which normally, would be way outside the budget). Doubted long about getting H1 or H2, but decided a slammed H2 would look better than the H1 with 3cm of spacers.
I'm hoping to get the bike somewhere at the start of January and I'm looking forward to seeing how the ride is.

Specs will be as follows, with stuff in red that will be switched.
Frame: Trek Emonda SLR Matte Sinister Black/Viper Red, 56cm H2
Group: Ultegra 6810
Wheels: Tace TLR --> Ursus Miura C25
Steerer: Race X-Lite --> Syntace F119
Handlebar: Race Lite VR --> 3T Ergonova
Saddle: Affinity RL --> Fi'zik Arione

Hope to end up with a weight of around 7.2kg.

Please weigh the frame when you get it!

You're going to have to ask your LBS to weight the frame for you, because they're supposed to sell you the assembled bike, not just the bike in the box (unless you work something out with them).

I kind of work at the LBS, so I'll build it myself.

I'll kindly ask myself to weight it for me ;)

Actually I might not be going for the fulcrums after all. A LBS here has a really good deal on a set of Ursus Miura C25 carbon clinchers. Quite light at 1350gr. Anyone with experience with these wheels?

And a quick photoshop....
Oh the pre-joy... ;)

A 1350gr 25mm deep carbon clincher..... i just said why?
When you can get a 1400gr 25mm(and more) deep alu clincher of very good quality and these are going to have probably a lower price too.

Good point, and i thought about it too. Although these will cost me €599 only...
Looking at Fulcrum Zero's thats quite a lit cheaper for the same weight.
And also looks ofcourse always help...

Are you thinking of any specific wheels for the same kind of money and weight?

Those carbon clinchers will only cost you that much (USD $735)? And the Fulcrum Zero Nite set will be cheaper? What am I doing wrong here?? :cry:

Wiggle currently has the Zero Nite set on sale for USD $1,305.90 - http://www.wiggle.com/fulcrum-racing-zero-nite-alloy-clincher-wheelset/

Ah sorry, messed up there.
i meant that the Ursus wheels are quite a lot cheaper for the same weight than the fulcrums.
The zero's (standard) will cost me €740.

Ah, ok...I feel better now :)

With respect to the standard Zeros vs. the Zero Nite (which will be 25mm)...what's your take? Is it worth it to go 25mm rim width?

According to fulcrums own catalogue the rimwidth of the standard Zero and Zero Nite will be the same.

Check their website and click the catalogue pdf file page 17/18.

Only difference I know is the ceramic bearings and braking surface

Ah, thanks for pointing that out...I didn't realize :)

Looks like Wiggle has the 2015 Racing Zero set on sale for USD $994.97:

http://www.wiggle.com/fulcrum-racing-zero-alloy-clincher-wheelset/

This set has the differentiated rim depths (25mm front / 30mm rear), is 25mm wide, and has ceramic bearings...listed at 1,437g for the set. Pretty attractive :) I might have to pull the trigger on these...
