I come from the Madone9 2017 Rim brake.
This SLR is another great TREK's masterpiece.
Indeed , there are no too much different from the FRAME.
But DISC brake..... of coz YES, I am also a MTB guy, DISC brake made me feel like home again :lol:

What rear light is that? Looks awesome.

The water bottles are a tight fit on that small frame. What does it weigh in at?

Also, is that a standard stem, looks like a -12/17º?

Love the madone in small sizes. That light integration makes me giddy.

Nice pics. That little light is kinda cool, but how visible is it by traffic do you think? I had last years? (prior to this model) Madone around my house for a while to fix up a bit (particularly the rim brakes), and had a chance to ride it a fair bit. Have to say, as much as I don’t like disc brakes on road bikes, the rim brakes on that bike were awful, in virtually every respect. From setup, to adjustment, to performance. Haven’t played with this year’s rim brake design yet, but have to think they’re probably not on par with a nice set of Campy or Shimano calipers. So I’d get discs on this bike too.
Oh... sideloader bottle cages perhaps?

I love the way small aero bikes look, especially slammed where the handlebars are below the front wheel.

Not even a side-loader on the ST, so how does the OP expect to get that bottle out?

The Madone SLR has two stem options and he’s using the one that brings the H1.5 fit back down to H1 levels.

Since nobody has said it.. I think it's an unacceptable crime to take such stunning pictures only to have them ruined with the Photobucket watermark.

That is weird, about the watermark... when I first saw the watermark comment I was on my phone on Tapatalk and thought... Hmmm... there's no watermark on these photos. But now that I'm at a real computer, the watermark is very obtrusive. And it's not that I just couldn't see it on Tapatalk, it simply isn't there. Weird, but it certainly does detract from the nice photo.

Wonder if the light is something like this, stripped out of the housing.
