Frame materials have some differences yes
But for myself if setup is tuned a bit then it is not much of an issue

At the end of the day my times are similar on all bikes
Comfort is close on all & it is definitely not about price IMHO
I am maybe easy to please :noidea: :D

Saw one review where it rides well another where someone actually dinged it for riding poorly on 28c tires @ 70psi (??) https://cyclingtips.com/2018/07/2019-tr ... lr-review/ . How often does a bike reviewer actually ding a frameset for something aside from a lack of a feature? James Huang doesn't usually just retype the press release and isn't an idiot, so this is puzzling.
It had to have been an oversized frame or stiff seatpost / stem / bars thing. I had problems with my stock Trek carbon wrapped AL seat post and AL bars, it was brutal with road tires on my Crockett CX bike, even with lot of pole exposed.
So I bought one of these... https://imgur.com/mJ4XpwJ.jpg . Rides great with an offset post, carbon bars, and 85psi in the tires. It's not a magic carpet ride, but it feels better than my CX bike on the same tires and a comfy seat post.

They have been selling the new purple rim direct mount brake version Emonda ALR in Thailand for 21,500 THB now which is about $650 USD
not too bad. I'm going to take a look when we visit next month at that & also the Ridley Helium SLA about the same price there.

My guess is both a revised Emonda SL and Madone SL will be introduced with OCLV 600 carbon next year.
would be interesting what price point they come in at. The SL Disc is, frankly, a bit porky at the moment for a "lightweight" bike

Where does that leave the SLR which is also 600 carbon?

I think you’re going to see a higher value Domane AL bike before that. They just rolled out a reengineered Mondone. The new Emonda has the same styling cues as the current model.

Both the Madone SLR and Emonda SLR use OCLV 700, as well as the Pro Endurance fit Domane SLR.

Ah right, before that only the H1 was available in 700 oclv on the Madone.

Have said this before, Trek's are made by Quest - same factory as Canyon. If you look at Canyon's line-up you have:

Ultimate SL (weight is equivalent to Trek 500 oclv carbon frame)
Ultimate SLX (no current Trek equivalent carbon frame)
Ultimate SLX Evo (weight is equivalent to Trek 700 oclv carbon frame)

So an oclv 600 carbon frame does make sense to split the difference between the two.
