I rode behind one of these the other day and the seat stays sans brake bridge (and brake) are mesmerizing, and damn sexy.

If you're taking recommendations, I'd remove the Cosmic decals and rotate the bars down. Hoods should probably be closer to flat. Give it a try.

I like the decals on, Ive seen them without and it completely ruins the look. As for bars im still playing with the setup im yet to play with the bars so will give that a look at over the next few rides.

I have never thought I would say this, but I really like the way the cosmic decals match the frame decals.

Looks really nice! I am looking at getting the same bike, it seems like Trek has really done a good job with this Madone, it looks so much better than the old ones imo(though the old ones aren't bad at all). What is your saddle height from the BB? And how do you like that new saddle?

The saddle is really really good, with other saddles I was shuffling about and never really planted on my saddle. with this I sit on it and ride and dont even think about saddle positioning anymore.

Height from BB to Saddle rails if this helps is 65cm

Ill get some pics up soon for the rear brake soon as requested.
