Those Red levers look so much longer than Rival, is their an actual length difference?
Yes - Escape Collective have discussed it in web review and podcast, and Peak Torque (UK YouTuber) mentions it here and actually includes a screenshot shot with measurements. It's enough to throw out a fit or change stem length spec before you drop 12K on your Madonda Project One

Anyone who has geometry info for the XL and L bikes?

Max saddleheight would be good, stack and reach too. Also what about pictures of the big bike?
XL
Stack - 610
Reach - 402
Nice thanks! Do you have for the L as well and maybe max saddle height or something like that?

I've heard availability will be very limited and it won't be until 2025...

Interesting as we've been told that there will be huge immediate availability - the lack of "old" Emondas and Madones is because all production was switched long ago and there are warehouses fully stocked. We're supposed to be getting something like 15 (in various sizes and spec) landing in time to be built for The Big Surprise Release.

Do some of you guys really have fits that are absolutely dependent on hood length?

Is this a trick question?

7mm reach is the difference between two frame sizes in many cases. Sometimes even more!

Has anyone ever actually bought those wheels for that price? You can set the MSRP at anything you like. Especially on stuff that you're mostly planning on selling in your full bike builds anyway. Don't ever plan on selling a single pair on their own even close to MSRP, jack up the price, and then advertise how the bike comes with $2500 wheels. And apparently it works on people based on this discussion. Anyone buying those wheels for $2500 is getting ripped off, they're not worth it.
Perhaps you should go back and read the original post a little closer.

Not really. My elbows can bend.

So if i read what someone said earlier right this slr frameset will cost 6000usd and you have to buy a seatpost separately as well as the handlebar. The latter is understandable, the former like really? Nickel and dime much?

It’s always been like this for Trek frames because there’s tall/short and 20mm/5mm options. Complain about the price all you want, but not including the seatmast has little to do with nickel & diming.

My Gen 7 frameset came with a huge box of parts including a long 0 offset seatpost to match the 56cm frame. I actually wasn't expecting a post because the frame was a warranty replacement.

It shouldn’t have come with a seatmast. Trek intentionally doesn’t show a seatmast on its Gen 7 frameset product page because it doesn’t come with one. I have done six frame-up Trek builds in recent years, none have come with seatmasts or seatposts.

I can confirm Domane frameset, no seatpost. I am from the Czech Rep., so it is their international policy. 6000 USD seems a lot, it makes it Pinarello Dogma territory, much more than Sworks SL8. (I don't remember what the price used to be for other Trek frames in the USA as Domane and Emonda are now listed at 4200usd, Madone 4800usd. But maybe those are reduced prices, they are definitely more in Europe)

Interesting, I have never bought a Trek so if they sell it separately so be it. I was interested at first for the gen 8.

Having said that it feels like brands are just one up each other on pricing at this point.

A madone gen 7 seatpost is 300 usd a pop (minimum) and the barstem is another 650 usd

Image


If the frame is around 5500 usd that is may be kind of okay. But this means to get rolling you start with 6000+300+650 pretty much a 7000 usd “frame kit”

Major put off, especially when it’s also likely around 150g or more heavier than an sworks sl8 in a typical paint not just matte black. I do care about weight. At first i thought maybe be i don’t mind the weight if the price is not too bad but this is a bit much for me. Not complaining - the offering just is not enticing enough all things considered.
