I'm trying to track your comment regarding the mask. Are you referencing the area of the frame behind the track of the wedge that is slightly elevated from the frame? I had initially believed this to be an intended wear point and thus was there to add additional protection. From your statement I gather that my impression is not correct and that this elevated portion can be removed?

Spot on. Mind, there will still be a slightly elevated area there (the serial# sticker) but not as high as it currently sits with the mask plus paint on top of that. DO NOT REMOVE THE SERIAL # STICKER. To give you an idea of where the mask edges are and what things should look like when it's removed (I've obscured the actual SN info on this one):

Hoping for some advice on a creaking bottom bracket.

I recently had my 2014 SC 7.0 BB bearings replaced using replacement bearings obtained from a trek dealer. The work was done by a qualified bike mechanic that has a good reputation, wrenching my bike for the past several years and runs a national pro team, etc.

Since replacement, I am getting a creaking noise (or a groan) when I exert lots of force on the right side, such as during a standing sprint or climb. The noise only occurs when the right crank is approaching the bottom of the stroke, and only under high force.

The shop has taken apart and reassembled the BB about 5 times now, and it is still making noise. The last time around, they used a green Loctite cmpd that they were sure would fix the problem but no luck.

Does anyone have any suggestion on what could be causing the noise and how to get rid of it? I'm at my wits end. The bike was making zero noise before, and I only did the bearing replacement as a pre-emptive since the bike weathered several overnight thunderstorms last year at races. The headset bearings were toasted, and I figured while I'm at it....

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Hi Steve-

Not sure what to tell you...in my experience the green loctite trick is typically one of the last steps before sending the frame back to Trek for inspection. Since you say the sounds weren't present before the BB overhaul it does make me wonder if the new bearings might be out of spec...has the shop tried installing a different set? More than once? Tried changing only the "top hat" inserts/dust covers?

Thanks for the quick response Carl. Much appreciated.

Shop hasn't tried different bearings, or the tophat inserts/covers. I'll see if the local trek dealer has a new set of bearings that they can try, and I hope that is the problem. Sending the frame back doesn't sound too fun.

Fingers crossed - thanks again.

Hi Carl and team,

I have a 2014 Speed Concept 9.9 and have a question about the elbow cups on the bars.

I broke my collar bone (2nd time) last summer and now that I am healed, I find the elbow cups a little closer together than I'd choose. I wonder if you have any ideas for me to get a wider base position for my elbows please?

I am fine for 10 mile TT's but have another Ironman this July and would like a more comfortable (albeit less aero) position for the longer 100 mile+ rides.

Thanks a million!

if you're at max width already there's nothing in our catalog to get your arms wider on the integrated cockpit...but I do know the amount of extension tilt you have and the extension shape can make significant differences in comfort at any given armpad width. so does cockpit height. whether those are DIY changes or you go to a good fitter to try some different configurations, those are options.

otherwise, if you got a steer-stub (OE on the 7.0, PN 438987, and also requires bolt kit 511065) which allows any standard cockpit hardware to be used, there may be products out there which could extend your elbow width to something beyond what we've got.

Question for Carl/anyone who knows...

Looking to replace the fork on my Gen 2 SC 9.9.

I can get my hands on an 'XL' one but i have a Large frame.

Is there an actual difference in the fork measurements for each size or will this fork fit my Large frame?


THANKS!

Forks are size specific.

The only way I know of to get a new gen2 SC fork separately requires your dealer to work with their Trek sales rep and order it via the warranty channel.

That's tricky as I buy directly from Trek in the UK, and they tell me I can't get the fork! I'll check and see if there's a way to go via the warranty route just in case.

Thanks Carl.

I bought a used 2014 SC 9.9 (to replace my 2011 7.0) and it came with Mavic wheels and skewers. Do the 2nd gen bikes come from the factory with custom skewers like the first gen bikes? If so anyone have a part number?

Also, the stem cover snapped in transit. I know that the part number is in this thread somewhere, but there is no good way to search the thread. Anyone have that part # also?

Dear Carl,

I have a problem with my Trek Madone 9 and would need a new screw with washer for the front derailleur. Is there a screw or hardware kit like for the Speed Concept?

nice regards and thank you in advance;-)

Hi Stefan-

The carbon friendly washer is PN W319573. I don't see a separate PN for an FD bolt for the Madone (the Domane SLR has one, but that's likely because it also has a unique FD washer). This means you use the one that came with the FD, just with our washer.

I also try to get new pad width spacing bolts for my Madone front brake. Are these available in a kit or could you please give me the dimensions?

cheers

I bought a like new Madone 9 frameset and during the build up I realised that the former owner somehow had installed one or two screws, that were not original ones. But every time with my Trek bikes, it is supercool to have such a great in-depth manual and especially such a fantastic support from you, Carl!!!

cheers

Stefan

Thx for the info. I try to stay aware of when there might be a problem right from the factory...but it can certainly get a little hairy in the resale market. Good luck and happy riding!
