Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Nothing wrong with 14 in any ways, I was thinking yours would come in 1.5 to 2 lighter than mine. With Look pedals, DA Di2, xxxl cages, C35's, Toupe Pro saddle, mine came in at 14.40. Either way I'm going from 17.3 lb Domane similar to you so it is big difference on the road. Enjoy.
Short of the cockpit, saddle and wheels, mine is the same as the SLR 10. Now you have to add the weight of the pedals, so it must be the "vapor" paint that saves all that weight.

All i know is the bike is phenomenal to ride. Very responsive and the shifting is "Ferrari paddle shift" fast.

Maybe their 10.25lb claim for SLR10 is without air in the tires My story is I needed to comply with UCI regs so I added weight to get over 14lbs, feel free to use that one. Like yours I'm finding it one great handling, fast bike. Mines headed to Mt. Lemmon next week, nothing like a 24 mile hill to break it in.

Fixed for you

Sounds like a serious climb... enjoy the pain.

I did think of going with Zipp 202s vs 303 to save weight (would of put me under 14lbs), but my previous bike had Easton 38mm wheels and the 303's just look cooler.

My first "real" bike, a '90 Lugged Trek 750 Multitrack, started life as a flat-bar hybrid. It was converted to drop-bars with Suntour Command shifters back in the '90's and upgraded within the past few years to Shimano 8sp with bar-end shifters, Velocity A23 wheels. It has served me well on 7 D2R2s, Honey One Hundred, and F2G2. Shown below in "Winterando" and D2R2 configurations.

Up North, I think not. 2013 2.3 has carbon seatpost (I know I owned one) and 2014 2.3 is spec'd with a carbon post but has an AL seatpost. Trek's reason -- I believe -- is cost cutting on a model that hasn't sold extremely well......and shucks "who would notice". I installed a carbon seatpost to enjoy the benefit of the isospeed decoupler as originally designed.

Bike might be a 85, but the audio systems live circa. 1965. Is it a Dynaco Pre and power amps?

The tube amps are late 50's-early 60's & and were rebuilt from some old Baldwin organs. Preamp is actually a curent model Jolida but is tube.

Ah... I have some old Audio Research stuff and had some old Dynaco in the past. Gotta love the 12AX7A and KT88s

are you talking carbon seat mast or just a carbon post? The ride tuned mast only came on 5,6,7 up here. My first Domane a 2013 was a 4 series and it had a carbon seat post but not the mast system that my 6 series has. There is big difference between a carbon seat post and the seat mast I was originally referring to.

Thanks for input. I'm talking about the carbon seat post. I know the difference as I have a carbon seat mast on another bike. My argument is that a carbon seat post is intended for the isospeed system on the aluminum framed 2.3 to optimize flexing of the seat tube. I have the ride tuned mast on my Domane 5.2. Disappointed that Trek seems to be mistreating the 2.3 as I think it's a great ride when appropriately lightened with a good wheelset and a cf post or mast (17.7 lbs w/o pedals down from 20 lbs. with clunker stock wheelset).

Just upgrading this 2013 madone p1 to red 22, dura ace direct mount brakes, pro stealth evo bar/stem. havent finished yet, should have it done sometime this week. Hoping to get it in under 13.5lbs. The headset is to high, so I'm going to get a shorter one and cut off the steerer tube.

Great to see this thread still going. I wish I had more to report, was planning to sell the Domane frame and move all the parts to an Emonda SLR with Vapor paint, then also get a Boone Disk for my gravel and fondo use. Alas winter modifications on the motorcycle and an irate wife has put a stop to that plan so I had to settle for some new R3's on my race wheels. I've never been a fan of colored tires but heck they were a steal so I couldn't resist!

Nice, I live in La Crosse. Bought my Madone from a guy in Madison who worked at Trek. I'm guessing you ride for the school then?
