We scheduled a fitting to confirm the measurements that he was using on his 2000’s Trek to make sure his set up and position would be perfect. After some back and forth to get it right, the Melee was ordered, a bike that prioritises efficiency and speed.
We built the bike with SRAM RED components, the wireless features but also gear ratio was key for Alex. We used the ENVE 3.4 set wheel set, an obvious and natural choice. The wheels matched the frame perfectly and provide Alex with the perfect balance between weight and aerodynamics. Going Tubeless was a bit scary for him, but after discussing the many good and benefits of this technology, he decided to give it a try. Lastly, he also decided to upgrade the bottom bracket to a CeramicSpeed T47 - it’s hard not to when the bearings feel so good!
