The Emonda SLR turns out be more and more interesting. I may actually delay my new bike purchase, depending on how it may compares to the Madone.
Anyone got more news about it that they're willing, and of course able, to share?
On a side note, I'm think I'm leaning more towards the Lime Green. Kind of surprised that more is choosing the stock color.

they do also have a stock color with some lime green
Yeah, but the whole color layout is not to my liking, sadly.
I'd throw in another option. I would buy the frame and then go all Shimano components including Dura Ace Wheels. The Bontrager brakes are reportedly not as good as Shimano which is the acknowledged leader in braking performance.
Thought of that before, but in the end it actually would cost me more. I'm actually opting for the Ultegra brakes. Would've preferred Dura Ace for the lighter weight, but not possible with Project One. Anyway, I am going with full Ultegra Di2 anyway, so yeah, all Shimano component. As for wheels, still finalizing the build, but it will be full custom. If only the Alchemy Orc-UL didn't have problems, it would've made my life a heck lot easier.......
I advice you to not get fixed on a particular color cause you can always repaint it at a professional shop usually for much less money.
Yeah, I can, but not too keen on losing warranty on a high end frame that isn't exactly cheap to replace.
