I had a madone last year. The bontrager madone brakes were terrible.

The bontrager brakes are coming with it and I've read good reviews about these new ones, not sure how some of the older ones fared. I did consider some ee but dayum they are high!
In bold above, in that case can you order two and I will split the saving with you?
And yes, the Bontrager brakes on the Madone aren't very good. This is the main reason why I don't want to switch to the new Red Di2, since it means going back to the Bontrager brakes over my DA9000 brakes.
Frame Weight: 690g for a 56cm frame including the integrated seat mast (but not the mast cap). I'm not sure about other particulars (hanger, chain catcher, etc.) but I expect much of that is left off. And they weight is almost surely with the Vapor Coat paint.
Brakes: As mentioned, these are totally new brakes (not the old ones on the Madone) and they appear to be greatly improved based on early reviews. I seem to remember reading somewhere that EE may have even worked with Trek to design them, but I don't remember the source so I don't know if it was legit.
I have an 56cm SLR8 complete that is slated for delivery 9/29/2014. I will post up pics and weights when is arrives.
One of the guys I ride with is a Trek dealer and his new ride is an SLR.
