Not quite, it is updated to DM brakes.

I missed that, you're right. But in terms of tube profiles/design, the SL has the old design

Strange, i thought the red bike in the first picture of this thread, looked fabulous.
When i checked the Trek web, i really feel the opposite.

I could care less about the color schemes and stuff but frames are getting so light. If this thing is stiff I think it'll be tough to beat. And I think the H2 geometry is fantastic for all but the fittest/most flexible riders.

pricing is very aggressive vs specialized

640 gm for 2999 is a steal

also the new Bontrager Speed Stop Pro 190gm dual mount brakeset a ee-killer

where are you getting 190g for the Speed Stop Pro?

looks like they don't have direct mount hangers (yet?)

They got direct mount brakes. Even the SL's got them this year.

Any update on availability of framesets? I assume fall/winter after they have caught up with complete bike demand?

Project one is saying a 22 day lead time for the SLR frame set. Not sure on stock though

Are you looking on the consumer ProjectOne website or somewhere else? Because when I just looked today it didn't even show the new Emonda as being an option for it. This is what I saw:

Ah, didn't think to check the consumer end. I'm looking at the shop side of things. Looks like there will be an update on Saturday though.

Their site has been updated with the new frames and color choices for project one. Not a huge Trek fan, but the new options have me tempted.

Not found on the US site. Only Madone, Domane etc, but no Emonda. Do you have a link?
