Trek Emonda SL6 Beater Bike

I have finally retired my trek district single speed belt drive and picked up a great deal on a new Trek Emonda SL6. This way i can ride my Trek Emonda SLR8 only on nice weather condition days and won't have to worry about getting it dirty..

Yeah, seems too nice for a beater bike, even if you have a nice bike than it, in your stable.

All that matters is that you're in compliance with Rule #25.

Nice, but flip the stem, if only for aesthetics.
