    2008 Trophy Pro Photos

    I have a couple of comments and there seems to be interest in the Pro so I'll start a thread. I'm 51, haven't biked in over 30 years. Sort of relearning on rail-to-trails for right now.

    What direction should the rear QR lever be pointing?

    Bike looks great though. Any upgrades lined up for it?
    You know what sucks worse than training? Losing.

    My only criticism of the bike's finish: the lower spacers appear to be interlocking resin, maybe (dull finish doesn't match the alloy spacers).

    I usually fold the rear skewer in towards the chainstay, pointing towards the BB

    I wondered if I would like the XT shift levers--I don't, I prefer SRAM grip twist or SRAM trigger. The XT release lever seems to jam my forefinger. I slid the shifters inward. The Reba pop-loc lever is jammed as far as it will go towards the center--the OS bar starts to swell pretty far up the bar.

    The gear indicators are removable.

    Here is the stock 2.1 tire. The max for Reba is 2.4, IIRC.

    I've got a Terry Fly Gel seat to replace the "Rx" one on there now. The Rx works for me but it screams "comfort bike" . The WTB Devo numbed me right away.

    I've got SRAM xo grip shifters and SX-9 rear derailleur (tired to spell?)

    Most immediate upgrade is Truvative handlebars with twice the rise (2") and a 90mm stem. I have the 18" frame that comes with 110mm. My back really wants to be up more, at least until I get in better riding shape.

    Some comments about the carbon-wrapped seat post: The sticker tells you to go to the FSA website to read the warranty. The warranty excludes any damage from the seat tube, IIRC.

    I have a shop stand that is designed to grab a bike by the seat post. I know you can't do that to a carbon post but I thought I'd take a chance with the carbon wrap. I heard a "snap" -- don't know if I cracked the carbon by doing that. As you can see in the photo, it is a very thin layer of composite. What that photo doesn't show is how beautiful the finish is--amazingly 3-D considering how thin the resin is. Well, it's beautiful until your seat tube scratches it.

    My overall shots of the bike were kind of washed out by the glare from the white + clearcoat. (Very classy with the silver decals.)
