The two racing bikes for the 2015 season

  • Trek Superfly 9.9 SL "Project One"
  • Trek Superfly FS 9.9 SL "Project One"

The specifications are identical appart from one of the bikes being full suspension

Groupset: SRAM XX1 (34T), Gripshift
Brakes: Shimano XTR M9000 Race
Fork: RockShox Sid World Cup XX with remote
Wheelset: Bontrager Race XXX Lite CL
Tyres: Schwalbe Rocket Ron/Racing Ralph Liteskin 2.25
or: Specialized Renegade / FastTrak S-Works 2.0/1.95

After having swapped the rather heavy original tyres and tubes for Schwalbe Rocket Ron / Racing Ralph and a tubeless setup, putting on Shimano XTR pedals and shortening the handlebars to 660mm the weight came to around 8.5kg for the hard tail. The FS came in around 9.5kg. More optimizations may follow

Thank you MC Center for supplying me with these bikes
