Beautiful bike! :beerchug:

My dream bike but I prefer the high profile wheels on the Madone.

Nice bike! But Snabb is right, high profile wheels would be better.

Bored today... getting over some bronchitis and can't ride for another week or so. So I had the brilliant idea of trying a spot of color with some orange Lizard Skin bar tape... :roll: :oops:

I previously shortened the black tape to stop right behind the hoods for the maximum aero effect. But that setup is dangerously slippery IMO. Nto sure if I'll keep the orange, but definitely staying with fully taped tops

Oh, and another update. So when I ordered this project one build... I didn't go for the Bontrager Aerolus wheels... got the Vision Metron40s. What Trek doesn't tell you is they are watered down, OEM version... Metron 40LTD. Which means steel axles, steel freehub body. 1750g pieces of doo-doo. Lucky for me the rear hub developed a good 1/4" side to side play. Called up the good folks at FSA in Seattle and they upgraded me to the Metron40 SLs. Completely different quality wheelset. Stickers peeled.

Watered down? To hit a price point? and then ruin your reputation with warranty claims????

I don't know what it is, but ever since I discovered Supacaz tape, I'm a fan. Their colors are brighter then LS and just 'pop' more.

This is a cool machine! how do you like it rich?

My personal experience with neon yellow supacaz is that it develops black marks easily behind the bend where you grip with the thumbs in the drops (plus other places too) even when I wear gloves always, and they are not removable by cleaning agents even when they say it's washable. Love the Fizik neon yellow I have on right now in contrast, so easy to wipe down.

Ruined my reputation? huh? nevermind... read it again... you mean FSA's reputation. I will say they really took care of me by swapping for a higher quality wheelset less me paying to ship a double wheel box from NJ to Seattle

Thanks Frankie - Truly does feel fast and planted. Sprints really well. Nothing to report other than what everyone else says about the Madone9. Cockpit points are typical for me. Surprising how well 9100 mechanical works. One of these days I'll find my hanging scale and post a weight.
