Time frame very dependent on your choices with respect to components and paint...so no easy answer there. Create something through the configurator on the P1 website and see what your Trek dealer says about lead time.

Colors & components (groupsets) often change to keep up with the times and consumer trends, so it's likely you'll see some differences there between 2014 & 2015 bikes. Platform is only about a year old, so I'd say frame-level changes are unlikely.

No idea if 9070 is changing. What can change is availability of 9070, or any other component choice. That's where it's sometimes nice to do this in person with a dealer (could be kind of involved...some dealers may want you to make an appointment), because then in near-real-time you/they can see the effects of making changes here and there.

FYI, my friend and I both ordered P1... his DA Di2 with stock paint was quoted as 50 days lead time. My P1 Ultegra Di2 with custom paint was quoted at 45 days and is actually coming about a week early according to my LBS.

Carl,

I recently bought a SC 7.5; per the SC size charts PDF file from Trek I ordered the size S with a medium/near stem. My #s are:
Arm pad reach - 495mm
Arm pad stack - 580mm
Base bar stack - 550mm
Base bar reach - 530mm

Everything looks great except I don't know how o get the bars low enough to match my current bike fit numbers (Felt DA) to match my saddle/bars drop to 13cm. I did a Google sreach and looked in The Trek website for the Speed Concept Manual (pdf format) and I am assuming that with the stem I have there is no way I can adjust and I may need a different stem and spacers for the bars? Below is a pic of the stem that came with the bike, not sure how to determine if it is the medium/near and if it is but can't adjust it, I need to contact my LBS asap to get a different stem. Thanks for your help!

stock 7.5 in Small comes with a medium-near stem and that's what you've got pictured. the lowest it goes for pad stack is 600mm and that's only with the lowest monospacer, 15mm. stock spacer on the 7.5 is the 25mm, if I remember correctly.

to get down to 580 (and keep your pad reach in range) you need the low-far stem and the 35mm monospacer (and the 5mm pad wing spacer). the stem is PN 436146 and the 35mm monospacer is w326502.

Hey Carl,

Is there any chance that the 7 series will come in UCI legal version?

Thanks.
