I have been looking for a used Trek Madone from 2004-7 as the basis of a weenie build with Campagnolo. I always liked the US Postal Builds with the Newton Stems and downtube levers for the front mech and will build something similar but with Campagnolo.

I have been inspired by Daddy Yo Yo's build and will try something similar on a budget. I have finally found the frame and forks and will post pictures when I pick up the frame and forks on Saturday. It is currently in the grey with white and red decals with a Bontrager XXX-Lite Fork (non-stock). I will get it resprayed in the Autumn when funds allow (gloss black with pink decals).

Anyway here is the collection of stuff to go on it

Bontrager XXX-Lite Tubulars (stealth look no stickers)
Veloflex Carbon Tubulars
KCNC Titanium Skewers
Deda Elementi Newton 26 Stem 12cm
Deda Traforato tape black
ITM Millenium Strada Bars 42cm
Fibrelyte Top Cap
Smud Seatpost
Smud Saddle
Smud seat tube collar

Campagnolo Record 10 Speed Right hand lever
Campagnolo Record Brake Lever (Left) or Dia Compe (if I cant find Campagnolo Record)
Downtube Lever for front mech (a la Armstrong) might have to be a Dura-Ace one which I have in the garage
Campagnolo Super Record RS Front Mech
Campagnolo Super Record RS Rear Mech (used as 10 Speed)
Campagnolo Athena Brake Calipers (might upgrade to Super Record RS)
Campagnolo Record 10 Speed 13-26 Cassette
Campagnolo Record 11 Speed chain
Campagnolo Overtorque Comp One Chainset 50-34
Campagnolo Overtorque BSA Cups
Look Keo Ti Pedals

I will purchase a new headset, would like some thoughts on whether it should be a Chris King No Threadset in Black Sotto Voce or a Tune Bobo in Black.

Outline guess is this should come in around 6.9kg.

Does anyone know what the o.d. measurement of the seattube is? My smud 31.8mm isn't big enough...

Bontrager XXX Lite fork. This is non proprietary to the frame. I am surprised by the pleasing weight at 368 grans with the star nut installed and the fact it is an alloy steerer. They look sharp though, I like straight forks.

A few bits for the frame. No brand spacer at 10 grams (will swap out for a deda spacer when it arrives just like Armstrong's bikes). Down tube cable guide.

OEM Left hand side brake lever. I have looked for a while for a Campagnolo Record Brake Lever like Timo's. The only pair I have seen were too expensive for the build, but I will continue to look. This one weighs 114 grams which isn't too bad. It looks ok too. It's part of the early 2000s Grand Tour mountain stage look that I am going for with this build. My Campagnolo Record left ergopower shifter weighs 169 grams and the Dura Ace down tube lever weighs 32 grams. Therefore, not including the extra ilink housing this saves 23 grams.

Madone 5.5 SL frame. I got a great deal on this, it needs a respray at the end of the season and the headset needs a bloody good polish (Chris King NoThreadset in silver). This frame is a 58cm and weight 1148 including the Chris King Headset (without crown race). I am pleased with this. Eventually I will either get it resprayed in gloss black with pink decals, or the reverse. Would appreciate some thoughts on this. I will go for a giro pastel pink rather than a dark or fluoro pink.

Fibrelye top cap and screw 9 gm. One of the signature parts of this build is the Deda Elementi Newton 26.0mm Stem. This is the 2003 model onwards with the red logos. Deda weights are always unreliable, this 120mm weighs 149 gm not the 130 advertised. Still I love the looks and Armstrong always used one from 2001-2004.

Smud saddle 68 gm and seatpost 100 gm. I find this combo comfortable with a decent pad in my bibs. I think it looks great on this build too! For the moment I will use the crap looking bontrager seat collar that came with the frame. I have ordered a 34.9mm smud one and will wait (Piotr is never speedy but I love his products!)

For the moment I have fittted this Campaganolo Centaur Rear Derailleur that I have modified with a Tiso alloy bolt, fibrelyte rear cage and fibrelyte jockey wheels. When I have a bit more cash spare I will buy a Campagnolo Super Record RS rear derailleur, as it would save 36 grams.

Campagnolo Super Record RS front derailleur 69 grams. However, I am struggling to get it to work with the downtube lever. I have never set up a downtube lever before and I am struggling to get the front derailleur to move out enough to get the chain to climb onto the large chainring. I have messed around with the outer limit screw and it still doesn't quite get the chain on, would appreciate some ideas here.....
