I have seen almost no SC7's in bike shops within California and none in races I have been in for the past few months. All the bike shops I have talked to say the same thing: "they are just not available right now, maybe in a month or two".
What gives.....? Was there some kind of production hangup or something? I have been waiting on mine for about two months and it will be another two months. Throw me a bone brother........I'm dying to ride my new bike. Tell me the Trek has dispatched a cargo plane and is airdropping SC7's all over the country as we speak?

Did a fitting with John and AAA Tri Camp last night with Power and Cadence.
My first race with it is next week with MiamiMan.

Another sizing question for you. When figuring out what to order using the chart for pad stack, pad reach etc...
I ride steep (80+). I am lined up to order an XS to get my bars low enough. So, I am wondering how the pad reach dimensions work? The range is 540 to 585. My current reach is 570 on my cervelo P3 (with a 20mm seat tip offset ahead of the BB).
Is the 540-585mm range for any seat position? Or is it for a middle seat position? In other words, can I put the seat ahead of the BB and still get a 570ish reach?

If you followed the measuring convention for the SC that we suggest here (see Step 1, on page 4 in particular), do you still get 570mm?
Problem -- for training in twilight/dark, hard to mount a taillight. I tried mounting under the saddle, and that worked but people
told me the light was obscured.
Solution: after many failed attempts, went to Lowes and picked up 1 inch zip anchors and some zip ties. Mounted two
anchors on the cateye reflector. Removed the rack mount adapter from the Cateye TL-1100. Addes two zip
anchors to the light. Zipped the anchors together. It works, but looks messy with the zips. Since cateye makes
both the reflector for the SC and the TL-1100, it would be nice to have a better solution.
470 not hard to hit then...your pad holders end up in front of the extension tower mounts vs behind in order to get out there.
Seat position not a factor. Easy to get to 20mm ahead of the BB at any height...particularly with the 35mm offset head flipped forward.
Press any shifter button for more than 0.5sec and the indicator light on the SM-EW79 box lights up with your battery level code.

So I just ordered a new Project one 9.9 Module in size medium to build up with a Di2 kit. I am switching back to Trek from Orbea after about 5 years. I switched to Orbea due to the lack of a good Tri bike offering from Trek.I had hoped to put my 1 month old set of Zipp 808 firecrest clinchers on the speed concept only to find out that they don't fit!!!! With all the R&D that Trek did I was surprised that they hadn't planned for this seeing how Zipp is the weapon of choice as far as tri wheels go. The Front and rear brakes only spread to accomidate a max 25mm. I am sure I can shave the pads down to accommodated it but has anyone else run into this problem? If so have you tried maybe thinner washers or thinner pad housing? Trek states that a rear brake retro fit will be available soon but that the front fork is limited due to its initial design and should be fixed on the second generation. Could it be possible that my speed concept with estimated delivery of 6 weeks have this retro fit already? I was hoping that maybe the Carl could shed some light on this. Thanks guys!

See you at the finish line.

Having clocked about 300km over 5 days on it thus far, my average time split over a tested 35km course had improved about 4-5% as compared to my E114. Hopefully its the aerodynamics and not just the psychological factor of riding a new bike...
