Cervelo S5....

I tested the Madone 9.9, Felt AR1, Canyon Aeroad Di2 (a friends) and a Venge (non-ViAS).

The Cervelo smashed all the others out the park.

It was the lightest, 'felt' the fastest, was second in comfort behind the Madone. I think it looks the best, it's the easiest to work on. I think it's also the most desirable and special...

To boot, Cervelos warranty is second to none. Absolutely awesome customer service.

If it had to be a plastic production bike....
C60 or Parlee
Custom hand build preferred over anything out of a mold - Baum, Vanilla, Pegoretti etc etc

Loving that an essentially 7 year old bike is still on some riders lists, I'll join them :oops:

1. Cipollini RB1K ..... :podium:
2. Bianchi XR4
3. Trek Madone H1
4. De Rosa SK Pininfarina (the early UCI illegal model where the rear frame hugged the rear wheel)
5. Open U.P.

Beside No.1 I'll probably change my mind after pressing 'submit'

First off I won't ride any bike that is ugly and all those the OP mentioned are ugly as hell with no color...in my opinion of course!

BUT, I did like the Colnago that was shown above (the black one with the gold highlights, that bike looks really nice.

Then there is this, really cool looking but highly impractical! https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/or ... e361a0.jpg

Dogma F8 on the cheap right now. Doubt most "normal" riders can notice any difference between the F10 and F8.

Save your shillings - I owned a F8 for a time last year. Nice looking for sure but the most disappointing high end bike I've ever chucked a leg across, couldn't get rid of it quick enough.

was thinking about a used F8 that I can get for around $3400USD but too many blokes around here with Dogmas or Dogma-knock offs, it feels like a joke. I like the bowed-out fork though so might go for a 2017 Orbea Orca OMR which is kind of boring but you don't see anyone riding them. Kind of a shame that it would cost me the same amount as the F8 though

as for the OP.. Madone all the way

You can get this
http://contenderbicycles.com/product/ti ... -frameset/
which is on sale now and it is a much better frame than the Orbea, something really special and exclusive.
