Ouch! That must have been some serious accident.
The good thing is the new one looks much better ;)
To give a justice to this frame, taking pictures use device with better resolution.

On a positive note... if you crash a madone 9 and it breaks... the internal cables keep all the pieces together so its easy to pickup. :D (Yes, I have one too...)

Does it fade from orange to yellow or is that just lighting?

Space shuttle!
Aero bar would complement the whole build.
Bar tape finishing job looks a bit untidy.

A bit of a scary background but this is a really good looking Madone build. Great job!

The tyres look out-of-fashion narrow, though.
