Very different bikes. Are you primarily on flats or all terrain? All terrain would be Prince, aero/flats/rollers; Madone.

Looking to purchase a new 2019 disc road bike and have narrowed it down to two options - 2019 Pinarello Prince Disk (available in AUS any day now) or 2019 Trek Madone SLR 8 Disc (currently in stores).
I’d take the Madone over the prince in any terrain..

I still miss the purple Fuji bike I bought with my first real paycheck at age 18 and was stolen from my parents' garage when I was away for the weekend, 40 years ago.

Not sure how we are defining “favourite”, but mi version is based on aesthetics only. I couldn’t care less about aero frames or disc, so a more traditional look and rim brakes are appealing to me. Most paint jobs these days are simply ridiculous and ugly in my personal opinion. In no particular order:

-Colnago C64 ONLY IF I could get it repainted in a more pleasing color like the Zabel blue, all white, or the red Saronni. I find all their paint scheme to be atrocious at best!
-Trek Madone/Specialized Venge/BMC Timemachine. Trek and specialized would never be on a list for me as I hate both brands and I’m not into the aero bikes or discs, but having seen them LIVE I was seriously impressed! Tons of great colors to choose from. The BMC water bottle thing is just plain stupid looking!
-LOOK 795 Light. Love it, but hate the excess of proprietary parts.
-Scott Addict, Willier Cento10, and Cervelo r5. Black and understated.

In other words, I can’t find one that fits the bill as is 100%

Surprised to see the following here:

Argon 18 Gallium
Basso
Sarto

All frames get the least amount of coverage/review. At the very least Argon is being ridden by a WT team.
