Trek’s Adapt­able Fit

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - Front Page -

Fea­tur­ing the same ge­om­e­try as the ear­lier ver­sion, the 9.9 al­lows for a range of arm rest pad place­ments. In­creased knee clear­ance comes from mov­ing the base bar for­ward by 4 mm. The brake levers were moved back 30 mm for smooth, out- of-the-sad­dle climbs.

There are two avail­able seat-post op­tions: a 275 mm or a 335 mm.

The 9 Se­ries seat­post is re­versible and comes in two off­sets, 15 mm or 50 mm for an ag­gres­sive tri or uci TT le­gal po­si­tion. (On smaller bikes the draft box needs to be re­moved in or­der to ad­just the seat­post height). The 9.9 is avail­able in Trek’s wide fit range: S-XL, as well as an XS model with 650c wheels.

$12,000

Trek has sim­pli­fied the process of fit­ting and build­ing the bike by an hour by re­duc­ing the num­ber of fas­ten­ers and tools needed. Our of­fi­cial Trek me­chanic, Andy Wil­li­son was adamant that once built up, ser­vic­ing the 9.9 would be in­fin­itely eas­ier than the ear­lier mod­els par­tic­u­larly in terms of the in­te­grated brake sys­tem.
