Weight: 33 lb 0 oz (14,969 g)
Additional Info

Additions included in weight with pedals: RideWrap complete frame kit, OneUp mini top cap tool, Tannus tubeless Armour inserts, Trek frame storage bag w/CO2 and plugs, Fidlock bottle mount.

Pros: Finally found a “SMEDIUM” bike that has a short ETT 585’ish and decent reach 455’ish depending on seat stay Hi/Low setting, headset setting & shock progressive setting. Currently run in Neutral headset, low seat stay and less progressive setting for shock for trail riding with occasional 3-6’ drops, etc. (nothing crazy)

Cons: Had to custom grind the top underside of the fidlock bottle mount to clear the frame storage lever (No biggy though). Deity doesn’t make a 40mm seat tube clamp to get the matching polished silver (Not Treks fault). Lastly and the most annoying is that the frame has ICSG tabs but can only fit a bash guard currently since Trek hasn’t caught up to getting an upper chain guide made to clear the chainstay frame pivot.

Misc: Didn’t care for the rise sweep and bend of the stock 250 gram Bontrager RSL integrated stem/bar & don’t trust myself with the Bontrager carbon Line 30 wheels that are actually the same weight as the Turbine R wheel sets I use on all my bikes.
