Hey all, wanted to share a question that was raised on my intro thread regarding mono extensions.

We've actually updated them to fit with the new hardware (enlarged from 5mm to 6mm bolts). This requires new hardware and a new slider to fit the new mono extensions.

6mm bolts and T-nuts – 596164
Mono Slider – W582447

If you visit your dealer they can order these along with the new extensions (which they'd see through their dealer portal).

Mono S-Bend: W582445
Mono Short: W582444
Mono Long: W582443


Are they the same lengths as previous versions or have there been any changes.

Exact same minus the spacing for the new hardware size.

Hey, All. Just bought my first Speed Concept. Used 2014 7 series. I had a bike shop check it out, but I have a few questions now:

1. The front brake calipers are not quite flush with the fork as designed. Any suggestions to make them flush?

2. Has anyone experienced the paint from behind the fork rubbing off?

3. Can you purchase speed fin replacements? I noticed a chip where it meets the frame that I didnt catch (was behind the small ring).

4. This particular model did not have the integrated aerobar base with the monobar. How costly is that upgrade with parts and labor?

5. Is the SC known to have paint chips here and there? Just noticing random tiny ones (3 so far).

6. Has anyone done a complete headset change? Previous owner said he has to annually get it serviced bc it begins to creak. When he services it, he just gets the bearings replaced and his LBS says it's good to go.

I would have your LBS check over the front brake as it could just be an adjustment. You should have a cover on the front anyways which is specific for the brake - if you don't they can order a replacement for you!

Also we do offer replacement fins, in both the UCI legal and non-UCI legal option - also available at your LBS to be ordered.

Paint chips are just the unfortunate event of owning a bike, your tires (or someone else's tires) can shoot up debris to your beautiful paint. Using a clear protective film can help keep your paint looking new and it's something I personally recommend, just make sure it is paint safe for whatever product you choose to use.

And lastly, your bearings are only what needs changed - being in the location they are, your body sweats all over them. They are inexpensive however!

Question: Any chance Trek is still selling its mono-extension plug-ins for the Speed Concept? The adapter for installing third-party aerobars on the Speed Concept? I can't find it anywhere and website doesn't seem to be getting refreshed with stock...

Anyone know where I can get one?

We have updated these just to fit larger hardware (5mm bolts to 6mm bolts) and removed the old model from stock. You can order them at your LBS only right now. But I have made a few posts of this but I'll add it again here for further reference with the updated Mono Extension part numbers too.

What is required for new Mono parts:


6mm bolts and T-nuts – 596164
Mono Slider – W582447

Updated SKUs:

Mono Plug-in: W582446
Mono Straight: W582442
Mono S-Bend: W582445
Mono Short: W582444
Mono Long: W582443

I have a new Speed Concept. Im dropping the shimano ultegra grouset for Sram AXS 12 speed. Is there any freehub I can change to to be able to run axs on the stock wheels that come with the speed concept or do I need new wheels. Thanks!

If you're currently running the Aeolus Comp wheels on a 2019/2020 SC, they are not compatible with XD/XDR drivers for a SRAM AXS setup. You may want to consider upgrading up to a new wheelset such as our Aeolus Pro or Aeolus XXX which are compatible.

Say, as some of you know, I'm fixing to get a new SC to replace my 2009 OCLV Equinox. Nothing wrong w/the Equinox (it's actually a great bike)... just want new. Thing is, the Equinox is incredibly stiff even with wider tires. It really beats you up. How would ya'll describe the efficiency and ride quality of the SC?

I ride a lot on chipseal and don’t find the SC to be harsh. At least not more so than any other bike.

But it’s also stiff enough for me. I’m not a big pedal masher, so YMMV. But I’ve never noticed any more flex than my old TT bike, an Orbea, or my current road bike, a CAAD10.

Your local dealer would apply the discount to the price once you order it!

Hey folks, for the Gen2 frames, has anyone else found it a little difficult getting adequate reach using the mono extensions?

I seem to fit a medium very well according to size charts. My reach number is about 45cm to back of pads. But when I set the pads up in that position, even using the 'long' mono extension set all the way out, I find that my hands are landing about an inch beyond the ends of the extension. I'm using the mid-far stem. This kind of surprised me as I have t-rex short arms, I'm the guy who buys the dress shirts in the 32/33 arm length...
I have ordered the trek mono bar piece that allows you to use your own extensions, so I know I'll get the length I need with that, but just found it odd that the stock long mono extension didn't work for me...

Yep. Now there are a couple solutions.

1. Get the mono plug that lets u use whatever extension u want but you loose pad reach so that may not work.

I had a costume bridge made to fix this problem.

2.or as someone posted on here a little while back I can't remember what page it's on in this thread they actually made an extension it made the mono plug longer so that your hands fell exactly where they should. I think they inserted a 3/4 inch aluminum tube bonded it down in the current extensions and then cut a piece of old extension the slide down over that also bonding it with some kind of epoxy. I actually intend to try this probably this upcoming weekend.

That was me in April last year. Original post here: https://forum.slowtwitch.com/...ost=6921753#p6921753

It's still working very nicely, and got me through a season racing ETU & ITU AG championships plus a 70.3 without any issues.

When I ordered mine in the fall it took about two weeks. But I chose one of the base two tone P1 paint jobs and I wouldn’t be surprised if they had those pre painted.
