I'm fussy with my bikes. Given my bike fitting profession
involves being fussy about other people's bikes, you'd assume as
much. So when it came to choosing a new race bike for the 2017
season and beyond, it was not a decision taken lightly.
Emonda SLR really stood out for me for two reasons;
aggressive geometry with Trek's H1 fit, and
customisable paint. I think I drove my colleagues mad asking every
day their thoughts on my latest creation on the Project
One website. I do love the option of being able to spec
crank length, bar width, stem length and seatpost setback from
Trek. Perhaps fussiness also brings impatience, so when I arrived
at our Gresham Street store giddy with excitement to open the box,
it's pleasing that all the components in the sizes I know I want
were there, ready to ride.
