Did I miss a tread where this was published? Frank Schleck rode a Trek in the last to stages of TdS, with the brakes mounted under the chainstays, and no bridge between the rearstays. And a front brake build half into the fork. Is it just a sligthly modified Madone or what?
I googled for some pictures, and found this.

Sorry if this is a repost.

No worries, it was referred to as the "new" "Madone" in another thread here:

Not sure if this one has a new name yet? :noidea:

I'm under the impression it passed UCI testing under the name "Madone 7". But I'm in too good of a mood to head over to the UCI website.
