Here's my 52H2 build. Without pedals it weighs in at 6.2kg / 13.7 pounds, with pedals 6.47kg / 14.25 pounds. Power Arc saddle and Kalloy Uno -17 120mm stem. I'm using a Cobb 5mm headset bearing cover with the 5mm spacer recommened by Trek. I show the Bontrager cages since I'm very pleased with their weight and ease of bottle extraction and insertion.

I considered a 54H1 but ultimately decided to avoid a shorter seat post and extra spacers, and I always prefer to size down. I have realtively long arms at 169/170cm height, and this setup fits very well.

Thanks to clydesdalechris and tobinhatesyou for their informative previous Emonda posts. Coming from a Cervelo RS I was concerned about the handling and comfort of the Emonda but it turned out to be a needless worry. The Emonda definitely meets my handling and comfort requirements.
