TREK’S EMONDA: HOW LIGHT IS TOO LIGHT?
Forming an intimate relationship with one’s bicycle is usually nurtured over the course of months, perhaps years, and through that same time period’s flow of experienced emotions. With Trek’s Emonda SLR, I got to form it in five days during Above Category’s Escape From LA, 15,000 meters of vertical gain, and almost 1,000 kilometers. After those five days, we were best friends. We shared highs and lows, giggles and tears, and moments where I wished the ride would never end, then times when I wanted it to immediately cease.
