Very classy graphics, very subtle.

Campy components just make a bike look balanced; I'm a big Shimano fan, but in the looks department it's no contest.

Not a big fan of Trek's (probably because a mate is practically married to his Madones) but that does look special, almost industial-bauhaus. Liking it. A lot. Reminds me of one of those Wally boats (as much as a road bike can!).

I keep pics of the bikes I like on here and this is on my master file of favourites and this is one of the very best.

Treks never appealed until I saw this one, but boy is this one cool.

Chapeau sir.

It gets better. The only thing I would change with that bike is to go sticker less on the wheels, but I love it. It has an elegance that Lance never brought to Trek.

It's in my top three bikes this year. My other faves Nils' Spin and Rustychain's IF953 steel offering.

i love it too.

as i've said before, the old madones in the right colours are very handsome frames.

i like the zipp decals as they set off the SRAM red graphics.

Only change i'd make is the bar tape, which i'd replace with black.
