Second question: what is this new pre-waxed chain use for races? Only for elite? Worth it? I've been out of racing for over a decade so am trying to re-educate myself.
Well official stuff you pretty much have to get from Trek, so either your dealer or from their site, which sometimes will still require a dealer. (Draft Box is showing coming soon, so maybe waiting on a shipment, but that does not mean your dealer could not order one)
For doing a BTA, I you do not necessarily need the bottle mount, but it can help depending on where you want the BTA. I used the XLAB Torpedo as my BTA, and it would mount with or without, but I believe I used the mount, so that I could have the BTA in a slightly more forward position. I believe your dealer should be able to order just the mount without the cage, if you are not going to use the cage, where ordering online I think you have to order both.
pad x ~470
pad y ~640
If so, a medium with a medium far stem. or a large frame with a low near stem would work. Without seeing your current position, it's hard to say which would be a better fit but I would personally lean towards a medium.
This is my current set up
Really appreciate the help. Can still change sizes in next couple of hours if needs be.
Edit: what I'm trying to achieve is move my saddle forward and get my hands closer to my face and aero bars tilted up.
In photo above my saddle is slammed all the way back.
In the past I've felt really good on an sworks shiv tt (medium)
But a 2013 giant trinity advanced sl 0 (medium) was too long for me
You have way more pad y than you need. I would get a medium.
and the speed concept little bolts for the arm cradles will also fit the zipp ones?
my cradle broke on the edge so thought id try the zipps
I did find this site for repairs and the fact that they have a speed concept specific page makes me wonder how frequently this happens. For reference they charge $650 for the repair but my bike only suffered dropout breakage and the derailleur playing the spokes like a harp did quite a number on the rim, but was fortunate in thatâ€™s i was able to keep it upright and nobody behind me in the group went down.
I've seen it happen a few times, more commonly on MTBs where freehub failure happens more often. It very nearly happened on my Speed Concept, but the culprit is not the bike - it's the Zipp Super9 I'd put on the day before and didn't notice had a draggy freehub.

Can't link it fit guide right now but on a medium frame, you can get down to 580mm pad y with a low far stem.
Thanks - and that still allows for tilt, correct? The tilt base doesn't come out to get that maximum drop or anything?
I quess you mean either XG-1180 or XG-1175 cassette, range 10-42. Those will require a XD driver body, that usually isnt provided on road wheelsets. Many hub manufacturers have interchangeable driver bodies. They usually cost something between 50-100.
