I just thought id update my post from page 1, the OP states the spec at the time and this is a follow up to the spec im looking to achieve over the following months.

Frame: Madone 2013 5 Series "Aero" Frameset 54cm
Headset: FSA Integrated, UD Carbon Spacers with Steer Cut.
Shifters: Dura-ace 9000 Mechanical
Crankset: Dura-ace 9000 BB90 (50/34)
Pedals: 9000 Carbon
Front derailleur: Dura-ace 9000
Rear derailleur: Dura-ace 9000
Cables: Upgraded Shimano 9000 Cables
Brakes: Dura-ace 9010 Integrated
Cassette: Dura-ace 9000 11-25t
Chain: Dura-ace 9000
Handlebar: Bontrager RXL Carbon (420 mm)
Stem: Bontrager XXX Carbon (110 mm)
Seatpost: Trek Integrated System
Saddle: Bontrager RXXXL Paradigm 140g
Wheelset: Mavic 2013 Cosmic Carbon SLE 1650g
Tires: Mavic Griplink Front, Powerlink Front
Bottle cages: RXL 24g Carbon

As you can see there are some major changes the continued 9000 upgrade, Possible Garmin 810, im also considering some Bontrager Aeolus D3 35mm Carbon Clinchers with DT swiss hubs, going to do some more tests with them before I make the change though.

Luckily I get to play with alot of kit and test it.

So ive decided to keep these wheels and run them for 2013 at least, I wanted to tone the bike down abit so removed the wheel decals, took a good hour to remove them and clean them up nicely.

The plan is not to leave them like this, im looking to find some custom cosmic graphics in either Matt Black or Gloss Black. But for the mean time this is what it looks like. I do like it but wouldnt leave it like this, the black rim surface really helps, it it was standard aluminium I wouldnt have removed them.

I think toning the wheels down will make the DA9000 stand out better as well.

Have to say I preferred it as was as the decals matched pretty well ... wish that top tube was nearer the horizontal Cannondale style rather than MTB style

Ive ordered some Charcoal vinyl decals. I tracked down some SLR decals but they were $100. Suppose I could have waited until I got to work on wednesday to see if I could have got some direct from mavic, But I wanted a specific colour to match best as possible.

Also the SLRs are a full decal with black backing, I dont want this I just want the vinyl lettering. cost me $45 instead from a local specialist.

The bike looks really nice. Enjoy it! I was of the opinion that 7-series was the way to go, but your bike has really impressed me. Might have to look at getting one of these instead!

Quick update with the decals applied, ordered some more to replace a few so they are all bubble free. If anyone wants a set of these let me know!

Heres the old white graphics so you can see them side by side, looked amazing but the white was to much IMO
