    What Trek Bikes have H1 Fit?

    I'm just wondering what 2018 Trek road bikes come with the H1 fit? From what I can tell only the super expensive race edition bikes come with H1 geometry. I definitely need the more aggressive fit and my team is sponsored by Trek so I don't really have a choice with brands. I'm also from Canada if that changes anything.

    Madone and Emonda, only the highest level frames. 9.9, RSL. You can get pretty low w/ H2 and a -17 stem, or ride 1 size smaller than you normally would and go slightly longer on the stem. A LOT of pros, especially euro pros do this. I'm just a hair under 5'8" and ride an H2 52cm w/ a 120 stem. Cavendish for example is a bit taller than I am and rides a 49cm Specialized w/ a 140 stem. I could definitely ride a 50 w/ a 130ish stem if I was more flexible. I'm old enough now that I need the taller head tube.

    My Current setup is a size too small with a -17 150mm stem, so I can't really afford to have anymore stack.

    Domane as well.

    You basically nailed it in saying only the high end frames. Maybe only the ones made in the US.

    I really do. I'm an elite U23 rider doing the North American pro scene and I'm a good rider but not super powerful. Which is why I need to do things like getting super low to be competitive. I'm also very lanky and quite flexible.

    Well, you're gonna be looking at the Emonda and the Madone. The Emonda is lighter, the Madone more aero and a little smoother ride.

    If it's a 2018 Emonda SLR I'd love to see a photo of your 52 H2. Can't find one in person.

    It was a '13 Madone. The SLR 9 comes out of the P1 shop, they can be ordered at any time and show a wait of about 23 days right now. Good luck finding one on the floor at a shop. Do you just want to 'see' one or do you need it for fitting purposes?

    Both. Yes, I've discovered that they are hard to find in stores. May as well buy a Canyon ;-)

    Is this a new thing? Did there used to be more bikes available with H1?

    As far as I remember it's just been the high end frames, like the old SSL Madone. They make the 'pro' geometry Domane, and the top of the line Emonda's are available in H1.
