Apologies if I'm not being very clear, but I'm struggling to find out what's the shortest stack headset out there I can fit to the Emonda? 8 mm is too tall. Ideally around 6 mm or below.
I'm upgrading from a Madone 6.9 with an H1 head tube. I've decided to buy H2 this time as removes the need to run tall'ish stacks and spacers, giving a cleaner overall look IMO.
Parlee Z5, Trek Madone, Colnago Dream,
Parlee Z5 XL (6055g/13.32lbs) Trek Madone 5.9 (7052-7500g)Jonesman Columbus Spirit (8680g)
Chase your dreams - it's only impossible until it's done
If/when I get it I do intend to port over the Record group, including calipers. Have to say I don't feel I have much more clearance with the Giant TCR they are on now than I see on your TRP's. But we'll see exactly when (crap, if) they get mounted on the Emonda.
I'm looking at other options but nothing seems even close to the value of the Emonda SL. Especially since I have everything I need to make it a ridable bike.
On a fun note, I picked up my new wheelset today. Pacenti SL23 rims, Circus Monkey hubs, Sapim CX-Ray spokes (20f/24r), and DT Swiss alloy nipples. 1430 grams for the set. I didn't weigh all the parts since I had my shop do the build, but each rim weighs 450g, front hub is 70g, rear hub is 230g.
I have a couple other new parts on there as well and will post another full shot soon.
I'm getting really frustrated with this, and would recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing the frameset (or maybe even complete bike) to really think about the build they want and make sure it will actually work.
SilentG - I'm going to call the shop at 10 when they open. I'm hoping he has one down there to check out, but he didn't seem too stoked on stocking another model when I last spoke with him. There are no issues with the rear at all. 27s might even fit back there. Thing is, I don't think it is just my fork. I think it is the design of the SL forks.
Another reason I think the angle is wrong is based on the pad location. I looked at a ton of photos online and noticed that the pads are all located at the top end of the adjustment slot. I'd think that ideally they would be closer to the center.
