Anyone know if a Pro Texreme Disc will fit out back on a second gen SC?. I won't be using the duotrap sensor.


Unless you've already figured this out, it will not fit. Fouls on the Duotrap sensor hole.

Edit: The Dash Cycles disc will fit.

Just discovered today that the two bolts that hold my 2015 7.5 mono extension onto the base bar are seized. They've been rusty for a while and I guess the whole having a baby thing diverted my attention....in any case, I'm a little worried that too much enthusiasm in removing them is going to crack the extension. Any top tips? My LBS sprayed some stuff around them today so perhaps by tomorrow things will have improved, but I'm not optimistic. Thanks in advance for any info.

I am looking into a used Trek Speed Concept 7.5 from 2012, size L. I was wondering if it will fit me, I cannot find the information online.

height = 183 cm
saddle height = 767
x,y = 476 and 656

Any thoughts? See picture below.

It’s a great bike - and if it doesn’t fit you perfectly straight away, it’s pretty easy and inexpensive to get the spacers or other parts you need to adjust it until it does. I’m 183 tall also and my L fits me perfectly.

This thread is huge. A great wealth of knowledge, but I am unable to search specifically in this thread for what I'm looking for.

Looking for ideas on how to mount a front light to the gen 2 base bar. I like the bontrager lights such as the flare/ion combo.

There is a bontrager bracket that mounts to the SC seatpost, but unsure how to rig the front light? https://www.trekbikes.com/...484/?colorCode=black

Thanks

I just mount it underneath the extension. Works for me. Hope it helps

Under an aero extension is the only option I can think of as well.

I'm not sure if that light can be rotated 90 degrees.... if it can, then you can mount it on your aero bar extensions.

If it doesn't rotate than you need to find something that will place a 22.2mm cylindrical piece in between your extensions. There are products that do this or you can just cut up some pvc piping. Then you can mount the light to that piece.

I do not know what what mount options came with yours, but mine came with one like in the link below. I found it works great by attaching it to the aero extension.

7.0 upgrades [ In reply to ]
Quote | Reply
Hi yall!

I recently joined the SC owner's group with a first gen 7.0 and am looking at upgrades....

crankset
cockpit

I'm curious, the SC 7.0 comes with GXP bottom bracket (?), what are my options?

What is a good, adjustable and aero option for the bars? I'm leaning towards the aeria but are there some other, cheaper options? (I don't mind used).

I have decent wheels already that I swap from my roadie, what other upgrades are most worthwhile? Any options for the rear brake??

No choice for upgrading the rear brake. There's also no need, you just need them setup correctly. There is an updated wedge which better suits having different width wheels.

GXP or Shimano BB. What do you want to upgrade. Better shifting? - Shimano. Stiffer - Shimano. lighter? Don't bother. More aero? just get a solid outer ring. Got a power meter? a GXP Quark would do nicely.

Unfortunately Bontrager stopped doing their bars based on the SC9 ones. You're right to be looking for adjustment though. I have lots of fun when bars just won't move to where they need to be.

Have fun.

Bars are likely first step since I'll have to rewire cables to get pads a little farther based on current setup, so why not just redo.

Unfortunately good to know about rear brake. Ive had to adjust already to get wider rim back there, so I'll just live with it. Front brake upgrade it is then!

couple things,
if anyone's interested in a 2016 SC 9.5 i have one for sale

secondly i am getting a new speed concept and am wondering where the Di2 batteries are mounted on the new speed concepts and how hard it would be for me to change the new speed concept from ultegra to ultegra di2. are there any additional parts i would need? any experience, advice, pictures would be appreciated. thanks

The internal battery mounts in the seatpost. The 9 series carbon seatpost comes with two mounting holes and a metal bracket for mounting the di2 battery. The 7 series seatpost (aluminum) does not.

https://trek.scene7.com/...t_Service_Manual.pdf

See page 4 of above. You need the 9 series seatpost and Di2 bracket.

Now people have done some work to get a di2 battery to mount in an aluminum seatpost but that will be DIY. Might as well go with Trek's proven solution of the 9 series seatpost.

It's super easy to mount battery in aluminum seat post. I got some of the super thin packing foam used to wrap dishes and what not and put a few layers around the battery and wedged it up there.

2k miles later on horrific TX chipseal it's still in place.

I almost pulled trigger on Carbon seat post but glad I went DIY and saved $100 for something else.

Like others have said, you can fit the internal battery in the alloy seatpost. I've had mine there for more than a year with no movement.

What tyme said is true as well. The 2018 complete Speed Concept comes with the UCI-legal speed fin (rear brake cover) which has a spot to mount the EXTERNAL Di2 battery (not the lipstick shaped one) inside it. However, the 2018 Speed Concept frameset comes with the non-UCI speed fin, so your only option there without buying other parts is to put it in the alloy seatpost.
