I see.

ok, went back and found the 5. That's very different.

Ew. Weird that they can route the brake lines but not the cables. Too much friction in the bends? Not enough space for brake lines and cables? :foo:

Generally I think only the Di2 cables can go fully-internal. Itís part of why the fully-integrated bikes are so expensive; thereís no 105 version.

No, I've definitely seen fully internal Ultegra mech - the Madone SLR, for one, pretty sure that I've seen a few others.

That's really sweet, an aero bike that's advertised as able to take fenders? I wonder what the mounting method is, if there are hidden mounts on the inside of the frame or what. That would be incredible to be able to run real full coverage metal fenders, and if it looks like there's enough clearance in the front with the 30mm tires that you could maybe fit 28mm under them.

my cervelo has mounts for fenders integrated into the frame.

I assume they are threaded bosses?

I noticed that it doesn't have a seatstay bridge, did it come with a removable one?

Your assumptions are as good as mine. It didnít come with a removable bridge. I just saw a section for fenders in my owners manual. I donít plan on using them anytime soon.

Hrm. I donít look as closely at Trek as you. My guess is itís a matter of the nature of the routing and whether Cervelo can accommodate gentle enough bends.

I feel a bit like a fool riding with them in the summer, plus the bike they're on is heavy and I'm slow on it.

I'm sure once fall rolls around I'll start appreciating them (and the bike they're on) more.

Feeling like a fool and riding a bike are

You might be right in another few months, but that's not the case right now.

seedsbelize 07-23-20 10:49 AM

Following one's train of thought can lead to odd places. It's nice to have a safe place to do it.

My goodness I just read through the installation instructions for the 2019 Madone - maybe if I got a fully integrated bike it would cure my incessant parts swapping :lol:

Interesting to see that the direct mount rim brakes are roller cams! Very clever ones at that.

In any event, if ever there was a prime candidate for a MUP soul-crushing, this was he. But I resisted and rode my ride.

Kudos on your restraint.

Was it a BikesDirect Motobecane or an old one, fabriquť en France?

Yeah, I'd assume... but I'd also assume that if Trek can get it done, so can Cervelo or just about anyone else.

Totally BD, it wouldn't have been nearly as trying, otherwise.

I hope so, but would not bet on it.

One of the First Look vids on YouTube says that it'll clear 34mm tires, so I would hope that 28mm + fenders would be possible.

Edit: hidden fender mounts, too.

Clearly you've never seen me ride.

I just got home from a lunch ride. During said ride, I made a left with about 50 yards of room in front of a group of riders. Rode about three miles and had to stop to text one of my employees back. One of the riders caught up and asked me why I didnít slow down so he could grab my wheel....

:wtf:
