Trek Emonda SL8

Does anyone own or has anyone ridden a Trek Emonda SL8? A friend is considering one with dura ace and I said I would post here to see if anyone had a view on what they are like?

No, sorry.

I have read a review of the Emonda SL (don't know which model) in at least 1 monthly (Cyclist) & maybe one other.
From what I remember, it was very highly rated.

Cost a bloody fortune though.

O.k, so far i have found a review of the Emonda SL 6 in the February issue of Cycling Plus.

Weight. 7.74 kg (size 58 cm)
