Not sure on that one. I have 24mm brake track with 26mm tires and it clears, but it doesn't feel like I should go much bigger. If I had a way to check I would. Best suggestion I would have is to reach out to Trek through their contact form and see what they say.
Apologies for the basic questions, but just beginning to explore the SC as my next ride and need a bit of help getting started.
I see the 9 series is available only as a frameset. Any idea why the 9 series build is no longer an option? Is this a sign that Trek has another premium frameset coming to market sometime soon?
I recall Trek built a nice X/Y toolkit to guide size and fit related decisions, but canâ€™t find that tool on Trekâ€™s website. I found a page on Trekâ€™s â€śPrecison Fitâ€ť process, but have solid X/Y coordinates and just need a guide for optimizing those coordinates on the SC.
All other considerations aside (handling, price), which wheelset is fastest? On a related note, I donâ€™t see a disc wheel in Bontragerâ€™s lineup but do see some pros (Lindsey Corbin, Holly Lawrence) riding â€śTrekâ€ť branded discs. Any idea what disc they are pairing with the SC?
Many thanks for any insights,
Wheels are a different ballgame. My personal recommendation would be to run a Hed Jet Black disc and a Hed Jet Black 6 up front. The Trek "branded" discs you see athletes run are just rebranded discs from other companies. I dated a Trek sponsored female pro year before last and she was actually on an Aeolus 9 that had a wheel cover which was then in turn covered/bonded rather skillfully with a large vinyl sticker with a Trek logo.
Go with the Jet Blacks. You won't regret it.
Thanks for the good thoughts on Hed. That setup speaks to me for sure. However, the whole wheel-shootout discussion (and the Aeolus performance in that testing) has me wondering whether integration is the real winner these days and to go with a manufacturer like Trek that (theoretically) develops the system as a whole.
IOW, I was leaning towards a Bontrager wheelset (acknowledging the the disappointment that excludes a disc).
Thoughts on that?
P1 2018 SC with FFWD wheelset and I'm loving it. Sadly my Powertap C1 doesn't fit, neither does my 4iii left-only power meter. Anyone here any luck riding with a recent M-frame and 165mm cranks + power (Stages or Pioneer)? Tried to search but only a 2014-topic pops up.
Out of interest. Which one of the trek colours is that? I'm not sure how much I trust the project one rendering to reflect reality so could do with a reference point
Getting list of 8050 / 9160 parts list. If anyone happens to have a specific list would be awesome if they could post! If not I will post when I finish.

I have mine mounted on top of the stem cover (mid far). Using Velcro and it works OK. On really rough roads it comes loose but easy to just push it back on.
Please refer to the service instructions as they better describe it than I will. I havenâ€™t got a link handy if you donâ€™t have a copy.

The color swatches that were in the shop were not far off though.
Not sure what you want to know. I have that but I do have the integrated cockpit. Even with that I had paint damage from the fork rotating too far and hitting the frame, but luckily no frame damage from it.
You just peel the sticker and stick on
