I have a 2012 Trek 6 series madone and have decided to get it repainted to bianchi colours, also getting steel washers bonded to the front dropouts for added durability. Once the frame gets back from Brisbane Im getting Sram Red 22 installed and my new american classic 420 aero 3 wheelset put on. Will be uploading pics and full specs Image

Weight, please!!!!!!
I've seen 720 grams and 750 grams claimed for Madone series 7 vapor coat. Note these are terribly close to the windbucket Emonda's claimed 690 grams. Madone's obviously the superior choice based on quantitative assessment. Curious what yours is.

yeah Paint My Bike did the repaint and also bonded stainless steel washers to the front dropouts which were made of carbon. They did a wonderful job of it. Now how do I get an image up on here?
