Anyways, has anyone upgraded their gen 2 cockpit from the bontrager bulk horns and clip on to the fully integrated cockpit with the mono extension? My LBS quoted me $210 to do the work and that seems pretty high to me. I'm fairly techical, but new cables and such is getting just beyond my abilities.
That being said, I built up my SC and it was a PITA to cable the front. Not impossible, but a lot of frustration getting the cable housing through the bull horns and seated into the entire front end.
I did Di2 and am glad I didnâ€™t have to cable the shifters on this bike.
Iâ€™m not sure if $250 is that high. I wouldnâ€™t blink twice at $200 - especially after doing half the job myself and how finicky it is.
2 months ago a bike mechanic I know and I swapped the stem from medium near to low and long, which came loose.. The bolts that go through the stem into the fork were a bit loose while they were torqued to spec during assembly..
I tried mounting everything again and retightening everything, but the stem is not flush with the fork.. There remains a 1mm gap.. Does it have to sit flush or is there always a slight gap?
Here's mine (low-far stem): https://www.dropbox.com/...%2020.40.38.jpg?dl=0
There's no gap in mine and everything is tight with no creaking etc. Ideally you should take it to a Trek dealer who can take it apart and make sure everything is put together correctly. You can also have a look at the exploded headset view on page 7 of the service manual: https://trek.scene7.com/...t_Service_Manual.pdf
So thereâ€™s that. I donâ€™t know what more to say. Canâ€™t seem to get closure on the gap saga.
Not everything is as it seems -Mr. Miyagi
The next version will prob be disc brakes and maybe some IsoSpeed. Just a guess
