Speed Concept 2011
The Trek Speed Concept bike is the fastest frameset we have ever made. To accomplish
this, we have used shaped tubes, hidden front and rear brakes, and very thin-walled carbon
tubes. Because of these unique features, the Speed Concept bike requires different or
additional assembly and adjustment techniques. Some of the tasks may have been done by
the factory. We include the instructions for these steps here for later reference when you
need to perform service on this bike.
We have also provided general maintenance information:
•
Carbon fiber care
•
Headset bearing installation
•
Bottom bracket bearing installation for a variety of bottom bracket types
Note: Instructions for Shimano’s electronic Di2 are in a separate document. See your dealer.
These instructions are written for an experienced mechanic. If you need further information,
refer to your bicycle owner’s manual, the instructions in a bicycle mechanic’s handbook, or
consult your dealer.
Please save these instructions for future reference. Also check www.trekbikes.com for
updates.
Note about performing mechanical work on bicycles:
Many people think of bicycles as simple machines, almost toys. However, modern bicycles
use high-tech materials and designs that rely on correct maintenance and precision
workmanship. If any part on the bicycle is worn, corroded, rusted, loose, or damaged in
any other way, replace the part. If you do not have the correct tools or experience, do not
perform the tasks in this manual; take your bicycle to your dealer for service.
In some cases we provide several methods of checking the tightness or connection of parts.
The most preferable of these is always the one with the most precision. In other words,
correct mechanical work requires that all bolts be tightened with a torque wrench.
Incorrect mechanical work on your bicycle could lead to damage or premature breakage of a
part, which could cause you to fall and lead to serious injury or death.

Working with Carbon Fiber Parts
Carbon fiber parts are different from metal parts, so they require different treatment.
Avoid sharp edges or excessive pressure
Carbon fiber composite can be damaged by sharp edges or clamping mechanisms which
cause a point load, or a high pressure area. Before installing any carbon fiber part, or
attaching any component to an existing carbon fiber part, follow these procedures to make
sure the parts or components are carbon-compatible.
As carbon frames have gotten lighter and lighter, you can now feel movement in the tubes
when you squeeze them. This is normal and no reflection of the strength of the frame.
However, repeated compression of the sides of the tubes is not good for them, and could
eventually lead to frame damage. Do not squeeze the frame tubing with your fingers, and
especially never clamp the tubing in any mechanical device, including car racks.
Clean carbon parts before installation
With some interfaces of metal parts, grease is used on the clamping surfaces to prevent
corrosion. When making adjustments, always grease the threads and shoulders of bolts.
Grease reduces corrosion and allows you to achieve the correct tightness without damaging
tools.
However, with most carbon parts you should avoid grease. If grease is applied to a carbon
part that is clamped, the part may slip in the clamp, even at the recommended torque
specification. When assembling parts that clamp a carbon surface, we recommend
applying one of the following special carbon prep products:
· Tacx carbon assembly compound
· Fiber Grip™ carbon fiber assembly gel from Finish Line
On the other hand, the bearing seats of the Speed Concept frameset do require grease, as
explained in these instructions.
Never modify the fork, frame, or components
The parts of the Speed Concept frameset have been carefully designed to meet the strength
and function requirements of safe riding. Modifying these parts in any way may make the
bike unsafe. As an example, removing the redundant wheel retention tabs on fork tips could
make the fork less functional.
Suspension forks can add stress to a bike frame. Never add a suspension fork to a road bike,
or change style and/or length of forks. If you are unsure if a fork is compatible with a frame,
call Trek customer service. Any modification of a frame, fork, or components means that the
bike no longer meets our specifications and will therefore void the bike’s warranty.

24 May 2010
Custom Components of the
Speed Concept
The Speed Concept design incorporates a number of special parts with special features.
This section gives a brief explanation of some of the features, their use and maintenance,
and general information about the bike.
Compatibility of parts
Trek only recommends Bontrager parts for the Speed Concept bike because with these parts
the torque specifications and, crush strength have been evaluated by our engineering staff.
Other parts might not meet our requirements and could lead to damage.
Carbon fiber construction
Carbon fiber composite is by weight the lightest, strongest frame material available today.
Please read about special care needed for carbon fiber in your the Trek bicycle owner’s
manual.
Two fork designs: integrated and traditional direct-connect
The leading fork design provides the least wind drag of any bicycle we have ever designed.
With the carefully intergrated headtube / fork interface and hidden headset bearings, the
air flows smoothly across the frame. However, this design limits the rotation of the fork; if
you turn the aerobar too far the fork will contact the frame, possibly damaging the paint.
The traditional fork design is more economical with only a slight penalty in wind drag.
Internal cable routing
To minimize wind drag, the cables and housiing of the Speed Concept are hidden to the
maximum extent possible.
Seatpost for either time trial or triathlon
The cap of the seatpost can be removed and rotated 180 degrees to gain different positions.
In addition, there are different legnths of seatposts availabe.
Hidden brakes
Brakes will require re-adjustment if the wheels are changed because the brakes are sensitive
to rim width. There are no barrel adjusters.
Carbon rims
Make sure you use brake pads that are compatible with the rim material.
2 TREK SERVICE INFORMATION
24 May 2010
Preparing and tightening fasteners
For each threaded fastener, apply a light coat of grease to the threads and shoulder of the
bolt or screw.
The correct torque is noted on or near every threaded fastener on the Speed Concept bike.
Because the specs are on the bike, we do not list them in this manual.
The specification on the bike tells you the maximum torque. Do not exceed it. However, you
should also try to tighten a bolt to close to the listed value; do not leave bolts loose. Either
condition, too loose or too tight, can cause a bolt or clamp to break.
When multiple fasteners attach a part, gradually tighten alternating bolts in small
increments; do not completely tighten one and then the other. As the bolts become snug,
check alignment of the parts and use a torque wrench for final tightening. When the
tightening is completed, all bolts of a given clamp must be tightened to the same torque.
For more information
Trek dealers have access to the Trek Customer Service department for information about
the Speed Concept bikes and parts, and can order any and all parts for the bikes through
standard channels. You can find updates to this manual at this web address:
www.trekbikes.com/us/en/support/manuals
Sizing the Bike
Before assembling the bike, make sure the frame is the correct size for the customer and
as much as possible, that you have chosen the correct stem and spacer stack. There is
information on our website that explains how to do this. Visit or website:

Crankset
The Speed Concept uses the same bearing system as a Madone; there are no parts that
thread into the frame. Instead, the bearings are a slip-fit into the frame. However, the Speed
Concept uses the new tighter fit of the bearings, which may require using a headset press
(see page 19).
Bearings kits are available for all major brand of cranksets: SRAM/TruVativ/Bontrager GXP,
Shimano HollowTech, Campagnolo UltraTorque, and FSA MegaExo.
Each kit includes a slightly different set of bearings, seals, and spacers. When installing
other crankset systems, follow the manufacturer’s instructions to achieve the correct
assembly and adjustment.
Do not use a hammer or bearing press to install the bearings into the frame. If the bearing fit
is too tight, make sure the bearing seats are clean and free of debris.
All bottom bracket systems share the same procedure to install the bottom bracket shields.
Do these steps before installing the bearings.
To install the axle shields
Figure 1. Applying grease to the axle shield
Your frame may already have the axle shields installed in the frame.
1. Apply a light coat of grease to the male axle shield (smaller diameter, Figure 1).

Place the male axle shield into the bottom bracket shell from the drive side (Figure 2).
3.
Place the female (larger diameter) axle shield into the bottom bracket shell from the
