Finally figured out for myself that I needed to be very technical and get one bolt slightly threaded and then jiggle the stem into place rather than push down. Thankfully it's in on.

I'm back with a different, but related, question. In order to get the basebar back on with the new stem I had to shorten the front brake cable and housing. Put everything back together and then realized that the brake pads are set way too wide. I didn't think I'd done anything to make that happen, but they won't engage the rim because of how wide they are. How do I adjust the width?

If you look at your picture, there are set screws visible on the side of the caliper arms. Those are actually accessible through a small hole in the brake cover too. You can thread the set screw in or out to adjust the width of the brake calipers.

Perfect - thanks for that. I had read about the set screws but didn't realize they would allow that much adjustment.

One more "dumb" question. How is the tilt supposed to work on the monobar. Is it just a matter of tightening the fore or aft bolt more than the other to get the desired tilt or is there more to it?

Yes. Just make sure you tighten them incrementally until they both hit the torque spec at about the same time.

Understood, thank you.

Where can I find the internal diameter of the mono extension? Looking at mounts for SRAM wireless blips and they give options for 18-20mm internal or 20-22mm internal but I can't find the info.

Thanks in advance.

Pretty standard sizes for extensions.
Just measured the S-Bend I have for sale - External diameter is 22.2 mm and internal ~19.0 mm or so. Hope this helps.

My 2 cents:

Large Frame
Far Tower Topper
Low rise base bar
45mm tower base
Short seat post

There's another thread focussed on the new SLR. Also if you look at the Trek website on the SLR page then in the 'Service' section there's a 'fit chart' PDF - why it's not linked in geometry is a mystery... SCFitData_nov21.pdf (windows.net)

That said, whilst you've a few frame options (M, L, XL), 490 reach puts you needing a far topper on all.

The L and XL would put you in middle of reach adjustment (452 to 511/471 to 530), the M right at the limit of the 492 max.

Stackwise you've got lots of options, but assume you go mid rise bar (some prefer the aesthetics) then on the Large you're going to be 30mm tower and not a lot of spacer. The advantage of going for one of the other bars is that it puts you in range of adjusting down a touch with the shims and not changeing the tower.

Ok yea thanks I definitely dont need to go any lower so the standard mid rise bar should work, will the bike co.e with angled spacers to make it 14 degrees?

This is where it/I found it to get complicated.

If you buy off the shelf, then it will come with mid base and mid topper that doesn't have the reach you need, so you'd need to buy those parts that I think would be a couple of hundy. But would come with the spacers for the angles and the 5 & 10mm shim.

However, if you go Project One, then it will come with the right toppers/towers, and you specify the angle you want (ie the shim to go from native 7degree to 14). You can always take that out or put the other way to get the other angles (0,7). I'm still awaiting my P1 to arrive (only Half Ironman of the year on this Saturday, sigh) so slightly basing on what others have said (ie await others to chime in - or better post on the other thread) but I don't think you get any 'spares' as such. I think it's the Cadex frame that comes with all the spacers, Trek just gives you what you specify then you need to buy anything to change as separate.

If you buy a project one, the bike will come with the tower toppers, tower base, base bar, and seat post you specify prior to order. It will not come with any of the other tower toppers, tower bases, base bars, or seat posts. The p1 order will also come 5 mm spacers, 7 deg spacers, and -7 deg spacers. The tower toppers are angled at 7 degrees by design so if you add a 7 deg spacer as well, you will get 14 deg.
