New Unit

Trek HiFiBill DeProfio will be making his Sport Class debut this Sunday and so will his new HiFi. I gave Bill a hand getting the bike set up.  Picked it up today at Chelmsford Cyclery.

We were worried about the sizing but it looks like its going to fit like a glove.  It looks like Trek must have run out of Bontrager 29 tires because this unit came with Schwalbe Racing Ralph EVO’s!  Nice.

Bike has a nice spec including a Ti railed saddle, some pretty light wheels and a Shimano XT and SRAM X9 combo.  The brakes are Avid Elixer R’s.  There’s a FOX F29 RL up front and a Fox RP23 out back.  Only thing I don’t like is the big sweep bar but that’s my preference Bill may like them.  Unfortunately we didn’t order the TLR strips so we can’t get tubeless setup before the race.  New bike syndrome (NBS) this weekend for Bill!

  1. nice looking bike. Wait, it’s the same as Gregs and mine. Good choice you’ll love the big wheels and the tires were a nice surprise. 17 miles sunday as fast as you can go! Get up front and get the wholeshot into the woods, going to be a ton of traffic out on course, with lots of passing and very few places to make your move. http://WWW.EFTA.COM video preview.

  2. Big thanks to Preacher Katz. I’ll be by Saturday to pick up the goods. Warning- I’ll have my kids with me. They like hot dogs and mac&cheeze…

  3. New pic added! Got some 3M clear on at the cable contacts. Shifter cables need a trim but I’ll leave that to Bill.
