Currently working on my new Emonda and building it up light as I can with the sensible everyday bike feel.



It's probably going to go back to 2x11 Sram Red but currently it's 1X


Currently
Trek Emonda SLR RSL H1 52cm
Sram Red shifters
Sram red mechs
Bontrager XXX bar and stem combo
Spada Brevet wheelset 990g - Veloflex Sprinter tubs
Sram red 1190 11-28t
PYC chain
Dura-Ace 9100 pedals


Image

Guys any hints would be mega! Has anyone used the XXX shift and brake cable sets? I've heard they are only grams lighter and not worth the fuss?


I don't have brake calipers (direct mount) and currently deciding on either

EE limited (the pink and silver preorders-150g for pair) £400 anything knocking around second hand?

or just bontrager speedstop Pro (190g for pair) £200

Also holding out for a XXX saddle as no stock available.

Thanks and stay tuned

Went with bontrager speedstop Pros, they look really nice and feel a big notch above the normal bonty speedstops

Bontrager cables are just Jagwire Elite Link. Well worth it. I run them on 3 bikes. They last forever. Just swap inner cable, or inner liner when needed.

Nice build! I recently acquired the SpeedStop Pro's (upgrade from the first-gen SpeedStop's). You've picked a great frame to build up, so enjoy it!

Ah, you must be in the UK. Probably not worth the hassle of international shipping.

How are you getting on with the build? Looks amazing! What model year is the frame?

Thank you! It's the last SLR RSL they made, perhaps the 2019...

I have recently fitted:

Sram Red Left shifter
Sram Red rear mech
Sram Red front mech
Dura ace 9100 chainrings - 52/36
Sram red 1190 11-28t
Schmolke expander and carbon bolt
image0 (2).jpeg
Bike currently weighs 5.92kg

Bought but not fitted
Sram Red cranks -minus 100g
Deda tape-minus 52g
C59 saddle-minus 75g (can use the SLR 7x9mm ears I have with this saddle to lose another 20g apparantly.)
93DD1DCA-435A-455B-8293-900C957077B5.PNG


So getting near the 5.7kg mark and onto £3/Gram which is getting a bit pricey and don't see too much more happening, perhaps tubulars tyre change if I can find something light and grippy that doesnt puncture or a wheelset swap but that's £5/gram for 170g saving. Perhaps Link outer cables too but dont think the weight saving makes sense.

been trying to find some light pedals, working out if Ti speedplays will be worth it, also trying to find aerolites/ultralites.

It's the daily training bike too. Absolutely love it!

Really classy looking bike, well done.
I guess the obvious weight saving is a wheelset swap but as you say, not cheap. Plus if the bikes getting a lot of use you don't want to make it too fragile, always a compromise I guess but its inspirational, the bike is stunning.

If you want 160mm cranks with power why not go Rotor? Not the lightest option but lighter than 105.
