Wow! Loved the last Trek build, glad to see there's a new one :thumbup:.
The current crank looks good, but seeing as the BB is threaded, a Record Titanium crank would look awesome on this.

This does indeed look super. Nicely done. The Campy on Trek thing always does it for me.

I don't recall a Campy crankset branded with 'Titanium'. Do you mean a Record alloy square taper crankset?
If yes, that would look excellent on this build and as the OP is using a standard chainring ratio, there would be no difference in gears.

I suppose the crank wasn't titanium itself, but it came with the 9 (and possibly early 10) speed Record 'titanium' groupsets.
Here's a pic:

And as modelled by Marco Pantani's Bianchi-Mercatone team bike:

Much nicer than the current crop of silver Campagnolo cranksets I think.

Thanks guys!

Carbolift is great! It works best of course if you follow the instructions (one friend didn't - he left the coating on for too long and know his frame is not usable anymore). At the end I only needed to do some minor wet sanding to prepare it for clear coat.

Some better outdoor pics:

Looks awesome - really like the boras with the frame. Also white saddle and bar tape is a good choice and looks nicely europro (especially with the deda bars). Whilst a square taper chainset would be age appropriate to the frame, they are too expensive NOS.

I love my nude madone with campag but I am tempted to switch to sram red 🤔

Yes - black headset looks much better than my silver Chris King.

Maybe I'll put on a Cane Creek headset. Because of the shape of the cups.

Way to go! Good to see you’re back on a classic Madone. I really have no remarks except the logo...I might do another one on the top tube or something but not sure.

Who bought the other Madone? You still riding a decent amount?

Thank you :)
To be honest I was even thinking doing it without logo :)

The other Madone bought the guy who also bought the C50 from me. He is from UK.

No, not really. I rode it 5 times in 10 days. All together 150 km :)

Are you planning to change anything on your Madone? Or do another Madone?
