This bicycle was produced by hand in Waterloo, WI, using the same molds and techniques as the Madone 6.9 SSL of the same year. The bicycle uses Trek's proprietary OCLV 110 carbon fiber material for very light weight and impressive torsional strength. An aggressive geometry provides nimble handling and lightning-fast pedaling response, especially during uphill, out-of-the-saddle efforts. Up front, a 1-1/8" Cane Creek external-cup headset holds the lightweight Bontrager Race X Lite OCLV 110 carbon fiber fork. The Madone's cables are all externally routed, allowing easy servicing in the field.
The Livestrong Madone bicycles feature real gold leaf panels on the top tube, down tube and seat tube. Lance Armstrong's signature appears across the top tube under the clearcoat. Yellow highlights and custom graphics adorn the bike and many of the components.
Shimano's 10-speed 7800 Dura Ace components are found throughout the bike, including the dual-control levers, both derailleurs, both multi-pivot brake calipers, and the 12-25T cassette. Long service life and precise operation can be expected for years to come from Shimano's best pro-level components. A Bontrager crankset with carbon fiber arms, 53/39T chainrings and matching custom graphics is an impressive centerpiece to the Livestrong Madone. Bontrager Race X Lite alloy wheels also feature custom yellow spokes and carbon fiber hubs, and are wrapped with 700x23mm Bontrager tires. A Bontrager carbon fiber seatpost, Bontrager saddle, Race XXX Lite carbon fiber stem and OCLV carbon fiber handlebar also boast custom yellow graphics.
Moots has been building titanium bicycles in the middle of Colorado gravel country since 1991. Steamboat Springs resides in Routt County where miles and miles of unpaved roads allow the crew at Moots to test performance gravel bikes every day.
The Moots Routt RSL uses 3Al/2.5V double butted titanium tubing, giving the frame incredible strength, lightness (only 1350 grams in a 54cm!) and a sublime ride quality. The satin bead-blasted finish of our in-stock Routt RSL is durable and can even be refinished by Moots at a later date. By using different frame tube diameters, internal butting and wall thicknesses, the ride quality is tunable for different frame sizes and rider weights. The titanium rear dropouts and brake mounts are 3D printed, keeping weight low in a critical spot without sacrificing strength. An oversized 44mm diameter head tube improves torsional strength, adding an extra dash of razor-sharpness in fast turns and descents. The Routt RSL's 68mm threaded bottom bracket is easy to service and all but eliminates noisy cranks. The "RSL" designation also comes with a racier geometry and a slightly more aggressive fit compared to the Routt 45. 3 bottle mounts and hidden fender mounts makes the Routt RSL a versatile machine for longer rides and rainy pre-season training. Largest tire size for this Routt RSL is 45mm with current wheelset rim widths. Up front, a Moots Flat Mount Disc Gravel Carbon fork keeps weight low while ensuring precise handling. Despite a long hub-to-crown length for tire and mud clearance, the fork weighs in at only 420 grams. A Chris King I7 headset shows that Moots sweats the small stuff when it comes to overall bike reliability and durability.
We chose SRAM's latest Force eTap AXS component group to equip our Routt RSL. SRAM's electronic wireless shifting means no wires or cables to snag or foul in rough conditions, and every shift is literally lightning-quick. Out back, a SRAM XG-1270 cassette boasts a huge 10-36T range to help make mountains into molehills. A SRAM Force AXS 43/30T carbon fiber crankset does power delivery duties. The SRAM Force eTap AXS rear derailleur features an Orbit chain retention mechanism to prevent dropped chains and roadside delays.
The Routt RSL's rolling stock consists of Chris King's tubeless carbon fiber GRD23 wheelset. Very light weight -only 1468 grams- is only part of the GRD23's repertoire. A durable hookless rim design, 23mm interior rim width, and FusionFiber composite construction makes the AG25 wheelset a perfect choice for adventurous riding on terrible roads with wide, gravel-ready tires. Or no roads at all! They're tubeless ready, too. The Routt RSL's tubeless tires are meaty Panaracer Gravel King SK tires in a comfy 700x43c size. SRAM Force hydraulic disc brakes boast outstanding stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine (or mud).
The Routt RSL's "furniture" consists of a Selle Italia saddle, a titanium Moots Cinch Post seatpost and titanium Moots stem. A carbon fiber ENVE Gravel handlebar completes this outstanding adventure machine you'll leave to your grandchildren.

Trek knows that comfort equals power, and power equals speed. This version of the Domane SL 7 features their exclusive IsoSpeed technology at the front and rear of the frame, making it a perfect choice for those looking to extend their rides on terrible pavement. There are other features found on the Domane SL 7 that make long rides easier. Read on.
In addition to comfort, streamlining is the new approach to speed, even if the ride is over hundreds of miles. The engineers in Waterloo started with a clean sheet of paper with the Gen 3 Domane and added a sleek chassis to the Domane SL series. Trek's exclusive 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber has been shaped to be aerodynamic as well as lightweight for this version. Kammtail Virtual Foil (or KVF) tube shapes are found across the entire frameset, reducing drag and instability from crosswinds. The cables and brake hosing have been tucked away behind the steerer tube, hidden from the wind. Even a rider's tools and repair kit no longer require a seat bag, but instead are stored inside the downtube behind a panel under the bottle cage mount. Cool, huh?
The rest of the Domane's features that have made it such a performer are still there. The cobblestone-eating front and rear IsoSpeed decouplers make the Domane SL 7 an exceptional bike for centuries, "challenge" rides and multi-surface excursions. A tapered head tube adds an extra dash of precision to every high-speed turn, while an oversized T47 threaded bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery with every pedal stroke. An aperture in the left chainstay allows the installation of a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately), eliminating the need for clumsy zip-ties. Need even wider tires? The Domane SL 7 can fit rubber up to 38mm wide! If you need fenders, removeable fender mounts will allow fenders and tires up to 35mm. The Domane's characteristic upright Endurance fit is still here, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable.
Shimano's 12-speed Ultegra Di2 components are a perfect match with the Domane SL. Shimano's electronic shifting is always lightning-quick, with a single battery charge lasting over 900 miles. The Li-Ion battery itself is stored inside the frame, shielding it from dirt and bad weather. The Ultegra dual-control levers have a slim, familiar shape not too different from their mechanical versions. Even the updated lever hoods are more comfortable on multi-hour rides. The rear derailleur's Shadow-style profile makes every gear change quicker, even when under hard pedaling loads. With room for an 11-34T cassette, the Domane SL 7's ability to help with fearsome inclines is even better. A rigid 50/34T Ultegra compact crankset ensures excellent power transfer, as well as an aerodynamic profile.
The Domane SL 7 makes wide tires perform better with Bontrager's carbon fiber Aeolus Pro 3V wheelset. They're tubeless-ready, and boast the same bullet-nosed profile as their Pro 3 wheelset that resists crosswinds as well as headwinds. Schwalbe's Pro 1 700x32c tubeless-ready tires with their latest Adddix rubber compound handle pavement rough and smooth. The "3V" version of this Aeolus Pro wheelset refers to the 25mm internal width, giving any given tire over 28mm a better contact patch on pavement, gravel or hardpan. Traction equals speed and control, and the Aeolus 3V's help make you faster everywhere. Shimano's flat-mount Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes add confident stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine.
The Domane's carbon fiber seatpost replaces the mast-and-cap feature on the previous generation of the Domane SL. Bontrager's Verse Comp saddle provides a comfortable perch for day-long rides, while an accessory-ready alloy Elite Blendr stem puts lights and a computer (sold separately) front and center. An alloy Bontrager Elite IsoZone VR-CF road handlebar finishes off this cobblestone conquerer.
A Shimano Di2 charging cable is included with the purchase of this bicycle
This might be the best entry level to a carbon fiber road machine with electronic shifting. Trek's Emonda SL 6 eTap shares the same Kammtail Virtual Foil (or KVF) aero frame shape as its big brother SLR version. This feature alone will save you a minute over 25 miles compared to the previous Emonda SL version. But the reason Trek built the Emonda is all about lightness...
With a sub-19 pound build, the Emonda SL 6 eTap will make every hill just a bit easier to tackle. Trek's 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber is a proven material to build outstanding performance road bicycles.

When the first-gen Emonda SLR appeared, jaws dropped everywhere. It was light. Like, science-fiction light.
Trek has somehow managed to make a lighter version of the Emonda's SLR frame, but can run disc brakes.
Let that soak in for a second. The disc-brake-ready version of the Emonda SLR frame weighs in at an absurd 665 grams for a 56cm frame (H1 fit). The disc brake fork is also an all-carbon unit, and weighs only 350 grams. That's actually lighter than the previous-gen caliper-brake version. How did the mad scentists at Trek in Waterloo do it?! They started with a revamped version of their in-house 700 Series OCLV carbon fiber material. The qualities of this year's 700 Series OCLV carbon is different due to changes in raw material, layup schedule and resin formulation. With the aid of in-house digital prototyping, the Emonda SLR's frame design also went through refinements from stem to stern. The hourglass-shaped top tube and stouter chainstays are the more obvious clues to the new Emonda SLR's changes, while 12mm thru-axles add torsional anchor points for better power delivery and handling. The tapered head tube and BB90 bottom bracket are still there, but they function better with the improved frame architecture and material "recipe". Aerodynamics didn't enter into the equation; only lightness and ride quality mattered when the Emonda SLR Disc was under development. Internal cable routing keeps the Emonda SLR Disc looking sleek, while an aperture in the left chainstay for a DuoTrap S speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) eliminates the need for clumsy zip-ties. The ride quality was improved with the new 700 Series OCLV, giving the Emonda SLR a smoother feel over rough pavement.
Equipping the Emonda SLR with Shimano's excellent 11-speed Ultegra R8000 components was an easy choice. Known for light weight, precise functionality, and overall durability, Ultegra components just work well for racers and recreational riders alike. The dual-control STI levers require less effort to shift than the previous generation, and still boast an adjustable lever reach for smaller hands. The tucked-in Shadow-style rear derailleur can handle much larger cassettes while shifting better under hard pedaling loads. The front derailleur's toggle-pivot design also requires less effort to operate. An alloy Ultegra 50/34T crankset and 11-32T Ultegra cassette bring a wide gearing range to every challenging ride. Hydraulic disc brakes aren't just for riding in the rain; better lever feedback and improved stopping power makes for safer braking in any conditions, wet or dry.
High performance can be found in the Emonda SLR's rolling stock as well. Bontrager's OCLV carbon fiber Aeolus Pro 3 Disc wheels are tubeless-ready and very light. They're shod with Bontrager's R3 Hard-Case Lite tires. Bontrager also supplies the saddle, accessory-ready alloy Blendr stem and alloy Elite road handlebar.
