Does anyone know the changes from 2016 to 2017 for the Madone 9.2 beside paint colors and wheel options. Also Are the Aura 5 TLR better than the Paradigm Elite?

I have the option to get a 2016 now for 500 less then 2017 which i would have to wait a month for.

thx

The Aura's use a different hub from the Paradigm Elites (which use DT Swiss 240 hubs). The elite wheels are better than the Aura's, just not as aero, due to the Aura's fairing.

You shouldn't have to wait a month to get your bike, unless you go the Project 1 route. When I ordered my bike at the end of January, I was originally told 4 weeks, but it was a glitch in the dealer program, and they had the bike in stock. It arrived in three days from New Jersey (would have been two days if it had shipped from Wisconsin).

I don't think there were any changes in the 2016 vs. 2017 models. I know 2017's are a little cheaper, list price vs. list price. The Aura wheels go for a good price in the aftermarket, if that's of any concern to you.
