2011 trek madone 6 9 ssl h2 fit frameset   2011 Trek Madone 6.9 SSL H2 Fit Frameset

For those who are looking for the right fit, the 2011 Trek Madone 6.9 SSL H2 Fit Frameset is the perfect choice. While keeping all the H1 platform’s handling geometry and ride characteristics, the H2 features a little higher head tube height to reduce back and neck strain.

Also, riders are accommodated with pelvic rotation and core stability. By having a higher head tube, the H2 appropriately gets most riders in the right place without unnecessary high-rise stems or a huge stack of spacers.

Indeed, every fit of the 2011 Trek Madone 6.9 SSL H2 Fit Frameset looks professional. Features of the frameset include 100 grams lighter new series OCLV SSL Carbon frame and full carbon Bontrager Race XXX Lite fork that comes with an E2 asymmetrical steerer.

It costs a lot of to invest in a time trial-specific bike—and aluminum frame-only options are uncommon. This is what makes the 2011 Kinesis 415 TT frameset an outstanding item on the market. Kinesis is well-known with a reputation for its quality machines and its 415 frameset is just a perfect example.

One of the latest feature of the 2011 Kinesis 415 TT frameset is the SPF (superplastic formed) tubing in its front triangle. Kinesis combines aero profiling with thin wall, lightweight tubing through its SPF feature.

With a decent width, the SPF top tube meets the head tube, making it super stiff and narrows down towards the deep aero section seat tube. Also, its seat tube enjoys a lot of benefits from the new SPF technology, which allows it to hug the wheel more closely than the KT-410 frame.
