Anyone else thought it was weird they seemed to just jumble up the 'Madone' name to come up with 'Emonda'?


Notice how EMONDA is just one letter away from LEMOND, a brand that Trek dropped during the Lemond/Armstrong spat. Freudian slip?

PS: c'est l'EMONDA l'envers (the world upside down); I could go on...

Daemon name does not sound bad at all. It is good name for fast aero frame :-)

$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.

Has anyone noticed http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/ro ... l_frameset for $1430? That's a steal for brand new 1050g frame with 358g fork.

I hope they sell the brake separately, so we have one more decent option for the direct mount brake.

I believe they have to because they don't come with the frameset only option, whereas the 6 and 7 series Madone does. Maybe that's why it's about $200 cheaper than the Madone 7 series frameset.

I still haven't seen a Cannondale black on the road or in a shop and I have only see on Rca and one 2014 R5 ... and I live in NorCal that has to be one of the top bike Markets in the US...

I've seen two Cannondale Blacks racing in Cat 4/5 fields in Portland and one of the better time trialists around uses an R5ca for crits and RR. My jaw hit the floor when I saw the latter, with SES 6.7 tubs, grinding it out at one of our early season circuit races in weather I don't even like to stand in.

Scott Addict SL also.

Although in the UK right now Cannondale have dropped the RRP on Evo HM and Nano frames by £800, which makes them absolutely ridiculous value.

I think this is great news for the weight wennie community. More competition the better.

We are all a little suspect because it is a Trek and we have all see announcements of low weights and then find that the actual product is much heavier.

I think the build is a little artificial. The AER headset is not a workable headset for most people. The wheelset is not what most weight wennies are riding and the tires are not general purpose road tires.

You get it to a bike that you can ride every day and you are up to over 12 lbs. You put on a lighter THM crankset and some lighter brakes and then you are probably back down below 12 lbs.

Edited - please refer to
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=126225


How much will it cost to build a ~12 lbs bike using this frameset? From my perspective spending over 8k on a complete bike falls into garage queen category, not your daily training machine.

I wonder what EE Cycleworks will have to say about the new Bontrager brakes...

I had to check build list when I saw brakes. I thought they where EE.



It isn't EE...

And I don't think Trek asked (not sure).

Functionally this grabs from EE without question.


Did the EE build on the WTB/Charlie Cunningham Lever Link Brake though? Seems like the KCNC CB3 or the THM Fibula have similar linkage designs. I don't know any of the technical aspects of the patent, or any licensing agreements, so I wonder how it all shakes out.

Wow, that would be great value. Do you have a web link of anyone selling one of these? I have been trying to hunt down an evo nano frameset.

I posted a picture a while back of my stem. Which is a Sebastian Wetz "Coparni", it is 56.5 grams 105 mm. My bar is an older Schmolke TLO, 141 grams 44 cm. My Ruegamer frame is now almost 7 1/2 years old and at exactly 600 grams for a 54 cm frame with front and rear derailleur hangers, is a weight I don't think anyone has matched in all these years.

Has anyone ridden Trek's ride tuned seatmast? I hear that it's more forgiving as far as vertical compliance than standard seatpost design.
