Another impressive bike added to the sable. Looks awesome. You must have plenty of storage space for all those bikes plus expensive insurance premium.

Is that weight with pedals? It is much lighter than I expected.

I don't like Trek just for the brand and I don't understand those stupid panels above the "integrated"front brake, but damn this is looking good!

The wheel/handlebar/steerer has to turn a certain amount meaning that the brake has to swing with it. If there were no VectorWings the brake cable would limit the movement of the handlebar because it is internally routed. The wings mean the cable can pop out of the side. Part of the design was also to pass UCI certification.

really nice color combination! Different than black, yet very understated and classy. What's the colors name?

+ 1 on the colorway. I do like Madones, other than the giant logo, but this one is particularly striking.

I've stopped trying to build nice bikes because of you Bely. You simply can't be outdone.

I would love to read a comparison of the Madone vs. The F10.

What size frameset?

@JScycle yes weight is with pedals.

Thank you all for your kind words. I was apprehensive with how it would turn out for a couple of reasons - I thought the trek race team Colours were hot but didn't really want to go that direction. Also. This is a H2 fit as I was afraid the H1 would be too aggressive for me and I didn't want the stubby stem with about a million spacers look and was anxious the h2 fit & aesthetics

This is a size 56cm.

This is probably the first 56 H2 (Madone or Emonda) that, for me, looks really good. You are right, a Madone 9 with spacers looks awfull!!
