Shop in VA. I put in an order for it pretty much when they released it, despite having some reservations as I've posted. Just came in today. Trek seems to just be catching up with producing the SLRs. I forgot to tare the scale before I weighed it, that's where those 40g went :P.

No SL frames here, but I believe there is another build-up post on that frame.

On Treks website they list a 56cm SLR 9 at 6.1kg without pedals or bottle cages priced at AUD $12 999.00. This is with full Dura Ace and Bontrager Aeolus 3 clinchers. With pedals and cages you are looking at 6.35 - 6.4kg dependant on pedals.
In comparison my 2010 Parlee Z5 weighs in at 6.1 - 6.4kg ready to ride with SRAM Red and Enve post, stem and bars, Speedplay. Ti pedals, Arundel cages and Garmin sensor / mount.
Not much incentive there to swap over. Admittedly the Trek Emonda would be about 200g lighter with Tubulars and you could fit the one piece XXX integrated barstem found on the SLR 10 and save another 118g for a RRP of $599.
I will be test riding one in a week or two to compare how it rides and handles in comparison to my Parlee and Madone.



Parlee Z5, Trek Madone, Colnago Dream,

Agree, I'm just a Trek fan :). I'd have thoughts of putting Red electronic on this frame if it were a bit lighter than DA mech/Di2... That, link cables, lighter brakes, integrated stem/bar might just make it 13 lbs ready to ride - but at a hefty cost.

But other than a bit different feel and 50-60g, I have no illusions that this Emonda is tangibly different than the old Madone SSL. It's "old school."

I'll put up an actual weight when my build is done. It'll be very similar to the SLR9.

$4200 for http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/ro ... nda_slr_h1 is not bad for 690g frame with 280g fork. Last checked the only frameset that falls into this price range was Cannondale Evo.



Felt F FRD for $3999 is another option.

The Emonda is a nice looking bike, and I like the cable routing.
The new Bontrager brakes also look really impressive, although at 232g they are not Much lighter than SRAM Red brakes, but about 60g lighter than Dura Ace.

I'm waiting in anticipation to see if they release a more aero oriented Madone next year, as Trek seems to be focussing on the Emonda as their mainstream bike, with the Madone being slotted in as the aero race bike.
This has probably got to do with the hassle of dealing with under BB brakes, and ease of installation and service for the average customer.


Parlee Z5, Trek Madone, Colnago Dream,

Those brakes are Émonda specific, the madone headtube beak gets in the way. On the back, the pads are not given enough space to clear the frame, even if you would find pads that would clear the frame, the brake mechanism itself is a real hazard if the brake cable snaps. I was thinking about a mod to make the brakes work with my madone frame, but im hoping sram will release something on eurobike or those ee's looked really nice.
Sorry about the nopic but the brake weight is 90g w/o padholders
Really disappointed in trek that they finally got a chance to redo those madone brakes and didn't

The emonda slr frame looks great in smaller sizes but not sure if it looks that great in larger sizes as well. Could someone post pics in 56 H2 geo?

Fah. It's all in weenie components. 180g tyres? Sure, but they'll last five minutes, and then you'll need to use something in the 220g range. I could get my R5 VWD, currently 5.95kg, pretty close to that weight if I went Red instead of DA di2 and used Tufo Elite tubs.

Oh - and of course my 5.95kg is with pedals, cages and Garmin mount. So you can knock off another 260-odd grams for those items.

Yeah, but you need pedals so keep that on the bike when you put it on the scale.

Never understood why a bike is not weighed 'ready to ride'.

Because pedal choice is individual, I guess. My point was that the quoted weight for the factory Emonda is without pedals and cages.
