Help needed from a madone 9 owner

Hi all
my first post here so apologies if it's the wrong section.

I currently use a 4iiii precision power meter (Lh only) on my trek domane and was hoping to get another unit pre fitted to a crank arm ready for my new summer bike so it can be fitted as soon as it arrives.

But..... I'm having trouble finding another Trek Madone 9 series with an Ultegra crank that I can do the clearance check on.

The check is really basic and just needs a AAA battery placing between the back of the crank arm and the chain stay on the LHS. The area where the battery will fit essentially determines where the 4iiii pod can fit. If it's in a certain range I can save time and money by getting the factory generic install option rather than sending my arm away for a bespoke fitting.

Are there any Madone 9 series owners here who could help me out, or who have L Side power meters ?

Changing the chainset etc for a quark / srm is out of the question as i've blown the budget on the bike :D

thanks in advance

  • Hi Garry, Thanks for the reply.

    He uses an SRAM group / chainset though, I'm ideally looking for someone with ultegra 6800 or perhaps dura-ace at a push (i think the rear of the crank is similar to the teg)

    :)
  • Just measured my9.9 it doesn't fit sorry even close to the rings end of the arm it's really tight and I wouldn't risk it , any flex any it would catch
  • Here are a couple of pics that might help. The crank arm is a Stages DuraAce but i've just checked my spare against an Ultegra and they are the same thickness.

    Thanks for the images, thats great :)

    Had an email from 4iiii today saying they're sure the ready to ride crank arm with the PM pre fitted will fit madone 9 too, so with that and these images I'm now confident of ordering an arm so it's here ready for the bikes arrival :)


    Thanks all who took time to check, it's much appreciated.

    Hi!

    I'm not able to see these photos. Are you able to send them to me via email? I have a customer who is considering the 4iiii power meter for his Madone 9-series :)
