This is the best looking one I have seen with those 808's on there. Looks mighty fast! Not my bike, just sharing the picture.

Sorry, I am familiar with the bike, just thought this one looked especially nice!

I rode one and found it heavy and sluggish compared to my Emonda SLR.

I'm not a fan of aero bikes.

with the H2 fit, this might be the only aero bike with upright geo. the bike above would benefit with a H2 fit with longer stem and no spacers

^ One thing to remember about the Madone is that that red thing isn't a spacer, so there's only about 1.5cm of spacers below the stem. Trek's site only shows the H1 geometry for a 62cm frame right now, but I know in the 56cm, going from H1 to H2 adds 3cm of stack.

I don't know why mile2424 didn't just link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiEmFPagBPg :noidea:
