2011 Trek Speed Concept 9.9 Triathlon – Time Trial
You can ride just like Team RadioShack with the 2011 Trek Speed Concept 9.9, which is primarily built for triathletes but can be altered for time trial racing.
By default, you can purchase the Trek 2011 Speed Concept 9.9 in a “Team Radio Shack” theme, but Trek will also offer its Project One customization option.
All the 9 Series Speed Concepts will utilize UCLV, produced in Wisconsin, and feature a “cam tail” cut, which splits air flow and acts like a deeper frame. Trek also added integrated brakes in the fork and frame that rout internally for a clean look.
Just as you see the 2011 Speed Concept 9.9, the bike is not “time trial” legal, and will not pass UCI rules. For example, the cargo pouch on the back, which increases the bikes aerodynamics, will have to come off while racing TT; The handlebars are also a problem with the UIC, as they are too long; And, the seat tube will not meet standards, either.
Trek has assured swapping out parts on the 2011 9.9 Speed Concept to make it UCI compliant is easy. One example is the seat post, which you can be flipped by using its seat post clamp. This widens the degree between 73 to 83.
Manufactured with SRAM drivetrain (mainly SRAM Red), retail price starts at $8,919.99 but varies if you choose to customize.
