such are sacrifices you make for a $500 frameset, but the reach is fine with the 90 mm stem that I borrowed from my mtb. I am thinking I could go with a less ridiculous rise of a stem angle and spacer stack with some pedestals for my aerobars or whatever you call them.

You have good taste in cranks friend. Also frames. Though you have the CAAD10 without the internal brake cable.
FRIGGIN weird how they made like four versions of the CAAD10.

>>1312542
Tubeless?

>>1312669
When will you slam that stem and get a 50mm riser bar?
>>
>>1312662
That's not how clearance inventory works anon. I was able to put out good power with this half baked fit job during my first TT on it so I'm content with this frame for a while.

>>1312669
The white stem is just a loaner for right now, I'm still working with my fit so I'm borrowing what I can from other bikes before spending any money.
>>
>>1312690
Cut your steerer tube.

More safe, more pro look

Great bike btw, I used to shit on Trek till i owned one. The frames are great quality and the support is amazing from the company
>>
>>1312693
>When will you slam that stem and get a 50mm riser bar?
Interesting idea. Will think about it. However, I prefer rather narrow bars (currently 58cm), so mounting grips, shifters, brakes, bell, computer and a light would require putting some of the stuff on the riser part, which would be awkward. So I'm not convinced yet.

I know easton makes good wheels and is a good company but I can't get over the fact they used to make the cheapest and heaviest baseball equipment ever.

I remember having an Easton catcher's mask that was so heavy on my head it made your neck hurt.

Kinda sticks with you when they are selling 1500 dollar carbon wheels rather than 20 dollar steel catchers masks.

It's a carbon Domane, so yes. It's "recomended" to run at least one spacer above and below, but I'm not so sure that's necessary these days.

There's probably some TT bike out there somewhere in the world with an even higher rise stem

Does it matter? You don't need that much steerer above the stem.

Yep, Trek Domane is the very best bike you can buy for the money. The frame is shit hot, its racey, comfortable, looks good, actually good stock wheels (although I replaced them with Fulcrum Racing 3s, which are fantastic and also best wheel for dollar available, bar none).

The Specialized, Cannondale etc competitors are fine, but all fall short a little in their own way
>>
>>1313073
Don't cut it
Why would you limit yourself
>>
>>1313073
As long as your compression plug covers the area that the stem clamps to entirely and where the headset rests you're good. You cut the steerer down to achieve those goals as a best practice first, aesthetics second.
>>1313088
>limit yourself in case you become a crippled boomer
boomer detected. Get a riser stem if you need it so badly.

>>1313053

get some silver spacers

>>1313178
I'm going to do just that tomorrow, I tried to adjust it during my ride but I cut the front brake cable so short that raising it made my front brake clamp down on the rim and I had no extra length to work with. I'll look into a new stem if I can't raise it up enough though, I agree the bars look retard.

Thank you, it's a titanium frame, Panasonic have built ti road, mountain and CX frames for a few years. The tyres? Vittoria Pave tyres are, pretty much, iconic so rest of bike mismatches get a pass. The Pave has been discontinued so I'll go to great lengths to cut, patch and sew these ones so that I can keep the iconic mismatch.

For a few seconds I wasn't sure if this was a troll bike, which makes it a 9.8/10 troll bike.

The perfect NDS photo starts to give it away, but what really gives it away is the perfect ramp onto the hoods.

Pretty sick attention to detail otherwise; the just slightly skewed tire logos, the slightly-too-long rear loop, the way the cage and bottle are chosen to be perfectly awkward.

Tried to do the same dingle thing i did on the bso but the suntour honor and spirt it comes with is an absolute pain to mess with in a way it wasnt intended to be. It might be because im still dumb when it comes to derailleur setup but im not interested in messing much with that on this bike since i have to use it everyday up to 20-30 miles. Put a 46x18 ratio there since im trying to up my cadence.

I think if you have to position your levers so high on the bars that your stem may be too long/low. Plus your brakes dont look very usable from the drops.

Car guys are the worst bike mechanics. You strip bolts, round surfaces, use the wrong grease, dirty up your chains (often with fucking engine oil or wd40) and have no idea how to fit it.
Your shit abilities to turn steel bolts in steel threads might work on your car and trash big box bike but you'd put he life of the rider in danger eventually by fucking uo repairs on higher end components.

People pay us 3-500 dollars to build wheels and to take to the x-games so we better fucking know how to do it safely every time.

You shouldn't need them if you have that many stops planned. Still, do an 8 hour test ride to see how long they'll last you. I drink one bottle each 2 hours so they wouldnt last for me.

I went through the woods at one time, ended up in the woods alone for 5 hours with 1 bottle of water and 3 snickers bars. You can say that I paniced a bit when my water was gone.

Now I have 3x 1 liter bottles, the 3rd one is never empty and only there for emergency and I refill the 2 others everytime I hit a store/town.

as a forever xc dweeb always wondered how these longer travel slack hts ride. I cant imagine anything more than a 120mm fork to be that comfy while climbing. Also doesnt the extra travel and slackness just encourage you to ride your rear wheel into rocks/features?

No one's going to steal your bike touring bike as long as you're not stupid about it. A hefty cable lock for both bikes will do and your insurance isn't going to pay you out jack for used bicycles and you're just going to be SOL anyway so who cares.

Fine and sure, I'd just call it too much of a hassle. Your insurance company is going to pay you out half what the bike cost retail, if you're lucky, on top of whatever your premiums are. That and hunting around for something to lock the bike to can be a real pain with a U-lock...I've always preferred a cable lock and keeping it in sight and a good bit of common sense. To each their own.
>>
>>1314780
>Keeping it in sight and a good bit of common sense
Even if I only have a u-lock, this is something that goes into priority everywhere. So far I havn't had any issues finding places to lock it with but I see what you mean. Sometimes I have a huge hassle just getting the bike close enough to an object to make the lock fit.

I would love to go without any lock but I have had kids move my bike while I went into a store to fill up my water bottles. Scared the shit out of me.

You know how a lever works, right? If you need 10ftlbs of found at the end of that lever to open it it is clamping with probably 80-100ftlbs. And front dropouts have lips to prevent the wheel falling out. Also that is a total myth about disc brakes

Again, not him but your LARP is showing anon. Have you ever made cowboy coffee? Why would you bring a whole coffee pot on a bike tour and rely on boiling water in that pot to make some shitty chalky coffee ground water? With pour overs all you need is that plastic red thing which is much lighter and more portable than a coffee pot, a mug, a paper filter and some grounds. Pour overs done right taste amazing and there is no need to use more water to rinse out a pot, just dispose of the filter

>>
>>1315038
imho 1x is a pretty specialty setup, you can hamfist hard enough to be practical but if you need a wide range a double is a better choice. I've got 1x cranks on my CX and TT bikes, and I've thrown a drop link or whatever it's called on my CX bike to be able to run a 11-40 for gravel races that have a ton of stupid climbs, but the jumps in gears really leave something to be desired if it was a gravel specific bike.

Eh, I've gone camping with a french press and an aeropress and its added work in the morning, and requires additional water to clean. At least with the cowboy coffee you stick with the cookpot you had anyway and cleaning is either just dispersing the grounds or packing them out, with a quick rinse before cooking breakfast in the same pot.

That's just for my usual solo packing though, I'll take along some luxuries depending on the trip.

I do throw some instant in a bag when I'm backpacking, touring I have more room so I'll bring some real coffee grinds along and I'll bring a bunch of those pasteurized single use creamer cups (bad for the environment I know). If you do cowboy coffee right and give the grounds a minute to settle out, just toss the dregs at the bottom when yr done.

dig a deep hole

squat and shit in the hole
wipe
then you gotta get a poo stick, and you mix the shit and the tp around in the hole so that it breaks down faster and animals don't dig up the tp

Traded my 2007 giant tcr commuter rig for this norco cx bike, pretty excited!

I live on a street that goes up a hill on like a 20% grade, so my driveway goes down and the ground is not really level. You can see the lowest line on the garage door, it has a weird angle at the bottom.
>>
>>1315426
Pretty sure that doesn't affect the orange-black border on your bike.
>>
>>1315429
Oh, thought you were talking about the angle of the photo itself, hadn't even noticed the paint inconsistencies before, thanks for that one
>>
>>1315407
Cheers. It doesnt climb much if at all worse than my surly hardtail. Especially on rough terrain the big wheels and suspension help a bit, and the shocks can be firmed right up on the fly. 26-50t granny gear so I can crawl up anything. That said the mtn in the pic was entirely bike carrying.

Looks like a lot of fun!

Here is mine. I had hybrid one with meme fork and 700c tires from like 2008 but it got stolen so i bought this. Here in Bulgaria maybe its the better bike to use cause of the roads and asphalt and always needing to hop on sidewalks. I will put slimmer tires in the future.
>>
>>1315392
>but pls slam that stem
lol watching paris roubaix this year many riders had a large stack including sagan
>>
>>1315420
Do the tires sit rightly on the rims? I had this problem with the same tires, but when I brought the wheels to a workshop the worker said the tires will sit rightly when I ride.
>>
>>1315208
it is pretty good bread
>>
>>1315465
Sagan had a slammed stem. It just looks like he had a large stack of spacers because he had the super special brand new Specialized Roubaix with front shock. Practically all the guys that looked like having large stacks were on the same Roubaix frame with the shock.
>>
>>1315392
My road bike has a lower stem. However, this is used on a variety of terrain and I like to be a little more upright when tackling super rocky downhills.

i've probably already said this but if you're not gonna tour or ride long distances on that thing, and you don't filter traffic tite gaps, why don't you convert to comfy bars like pic related?
you can keep your shifters and levers if you pick the right ones, and your stem, or get a taller stem as well
you'll just need to re-cable and tape

That would actually work pretty well since these bars and stem are from a le tour that desperately needs them back. Plus this thing gives me some serious wrist pain.
>>
>>1315840
Mustache bars aren't actually comfy though. The different hand positions are memes, and it gets worse once you compared to a modern road cockpit. Dealing with headwinds on mustache bars is especially awkward.
>>
>>1315866
>The different hand positions are memes
No shit, they were invented when Japanese schools banned bikes with drop bars cause they encourage going fast.
>>
>>1315866
they're comfy for futzing about slowly
>>
>>1315867
The Japanese ones were just flipped townie bars, typically found with 22.2mm brake levers and short rubber grips. They're very similar to early shallow riser/drops from bikes in the 20's and 30's.

It was Grant that went full autismo claiming they were mini drops and putting hooded road brakes on them and wrapping them in bar tape. Grant is in general a liar and a charlatan, even moreso than Jan, both which hide behind a few nuggets of wisdom.

>>1315873
But not special in any particular way compared to other townie bar shapes.
>>
>>1315866
Man I wish I read this earlier I had some mustache bars for a while and they sucked dick. Flat bars were an improvement. Flat bars. Let that sink in everyone. Flat bars were better.
>>
>>1315884
you can put road levers and bar end shifters on them

So far so good! I haven't had any problems, granted I've ridden it a total of like 60km.

Jan builds bikes?
>>
>>1315884
It's really weird how Grant came so close to creating dirt drops but instead got a degenerative mind virus that's culminated in the "Gus Boots Wilsen" monstrosity.
Jan tho, that guy is a piece of work. The rebranded paselas are one thing, but the fucking cantilever brakes that are twice as expensive as Super Record calipers (which themselves are massively overpriced Tekros)...christ.

I took /n/'s advice and got riser bars. It still feels way too stretched out, but I haven't had a chance to ride it yet; it'll be another month before it's really warm outside.

I'm thinking of rotating the stem to face backwards. I really should just sell the fucking thing.
>>
>>1316384
more cables my man
>>
>>1316384
looks cool, it's a shame the bike appears to be too big for you and/or you aren't comfortable with the geometry.
>>
>>1315456
I like your eastern block front suspension XC mtb

>>1315465
>lol watching paris roubaix this year many riders had a large stack

That is something specific to the cobbled classics. More weight over the back wheel and less weight over the handlebars means faster over Pave. That's why the Specialized Roubaix is such an odd upright duck for a road bike- designed for the Cobbles.

>>1315538
>Practically all the guys that looked like having large stacks were on the same Roubaix frame with the shock.

Pinarello's dual susp road bike appeared to be a bust at Roubaix. And it is worth noting that the guy who finished second for Katusha team was riding a non micro-susp road bike with 25mm tires so who the fuck knows with that race.

The infrequent amounts of time people win it back to back leads me to think it's a lot of luck.

>>1315424
Plus not to mention if the orange was on top it would look like the setting sun and the curve would make sense.
>>
>>1315424
Norco should release

1) A leaf livery with white, red and leafs all down the top tube.

2) A touring bike called the Norco Narco with racks and panniers that fit multiple kilo sized objects.
