[VidSitePro id=93 ]today on this James the bike guy we’re taking a look at the 2020 Trek a Monda SL six disc this is their lightweight performance climbing bike in disc brake format and the SL six means it’s got all tegra so let’s go ahead and go over some of the features the design and then of course we’ll find out what it weighs so this trek SL 6 Amanda to start off with comes in this beautiful radioactive red and black it’s got a few other colors as well but I think this color really makes it look super nice another neat thing is these bikes will actually come all the way from a size 47 all the way up to a 64 so with the mondo lineup you’re gonna have no issues tracking down the right size now the frame itself is made out of what they call their ultralight 500 series ocl v carbon-fiber 500 series means this is a carbon fiber frame it’s got a carbon fork and carbon steer tube and it should be a very lightweight build now this is going to use their h2 geometry which means that it’s a performance height in the front end but it does still allow an upright enough position to be able to use this for an endurance bike now we talked about the fork the fork itself does have a carbon fiber steer tube as you can see in there and then that’s gonna go through two straight blade carbon fork blades to a 12 millimeter thru-axle up front so this is 12 by 100 through axle up front and the 500 series OC LV frame has a 12 by 142 through axle rear now one of the neat things that Trek does on their bikes like this has actually got to do with a seat post so this bike has what they call a seat mast what that means is you can see the frame itself comes up and then the post or the topper goes down on to the seat mast and what that allows for is they can do what they call rider tunes seat mast where they can tune the flex of the seat post and it’s not going to change based on how much or how little you have the seat post installed now for the frame set the bottom bracket itself is going to be a press fit BB 90 bottom bracket and then very nicely this is set up with what they call duo trap so that’s a spot where you can put Bluetooth sensor so that you can pick up speed and cadence without having anything zip tied on the frame now talking about drivetrain of the bike we’ll start off with this is Shimano’s Altera hydraulic drivetrains this is the our 8000 series in hydraulic setup so you’ve got nice hydraulic levers you’re then gonna have in the back a Shimano are 8,000 rear cassette it’s at 11:28 on this button then you’ve got an r 8,000 short caged rear derailleur and then up front you’re gonna run an r 8000 front derailleur this has the cam actuation it’s the new style front derailleur and then an R 8000 50:34 crank set four wheels this has actually got a very nice wheel set so this is what’s called a Bontrager paradigm wheel so it’s gonna have a more basic hub which is 12 by 142 rear and 12 by 100 upfront but it’s a nice wide tubeless ready rim and four tires we’re actually going to be running the bun tracker r2 this is a brand new tire the r2 series has been around for a while but you can see the tire itself is different this is a much lighter much faster rolling Bontrager tire and should end up being a really nice setup now for brakes you’re running 160 rotors front and rear they’re Shimano RT 800 sinner lock rotors with Shimano flat mount calibers for the cockpit you run a Bontrager montrose saddle in the back that’s a 138 millimeter width and the Bontrager montrose is mounted onto a carbon-fiber seat post now in the front you’re running bun trackers blender stem and you’ll notice that that attaches where you can actually get a computer mount you can put light mounts things like that onto there and then you’ve got the bun tracker elite VRC which is a nice short and shallow reach bar should make it very comfortable and allow you to get to all of the positions so that’s a look at the 2020 Trek Amanda sl6 disc let’s go ahead and find out what it weighs the trek Amanda sl6 disc and a size 54 is going to come in and weigh 18.0 8/4 watching this video on the 20/20 Trek Amanda sl6 disc go ahead and let me know your thoughts down in the comment section below.
