Hi there I'm new here! :)

I have a little preview of my Trek Madone 7.9 "Spartacus Swiss Edition":

I will keep you updated as soon as the bike is getting "built up"!

Greetings

Really sweet. Did you weigh the frame?

Can't wait to see it built up.

Finally get to see one of these with an H1 headtube (I think?) it looks A LOT better.

Phahaaaaaa! That's the main question. :mrgreen: I lol'd hard! Nice bikes in your garage.

If you don't need them, I will take that blue Focus free of charge. :lol:

@NGMN: I didn't weigh the bare frame. The weight of frame (incl. no-cut seat mast), uncut fork (two spacers), rear + front derailleur, crankset (incl. integrated chain catcher) and chain is 3080g :)

@irf3: As written above, it is H1 geometry :wink:

I have a set of Mavic Ksyrium Elites as training/bad weather wheels and a set of Zipp 404s as racing/nice weather wheels! :)

Definitely will be watching how this one goes. Nice to finally see that H1 geometry Madone 7's exist. :up:

A travesty? An abomination? Algo que a ti no te parece bien.

It's more in a sense of vulgar not abomination

Assuming you haven't dialed in fit yet? It seems like it would be a waste to get H1 geometry and ride with a spacer stack.
