2010 Trek Madone 6 Series
Pearl White + Candy Red
Frame: Madone 6 Series (Red OCLV)
Groupset: SRAM Red
Wheelset: Custom built - Kinlin XR-300 + Chris King R45 (aka Swift) hubs + DT Aerolite spokes
Bontrager XXX Stem + Handlebar (Not a fan of the bars. Any opinions on the Shimano PRO RACE bars http://pro-bikegear.com/publish/content ... /race.html)
Bontrager RXL Saddle (*I hate it... See below*)
Stock cables to be switched to Yokozuna or Nokon (any opinions?)
Bontrager Race XLite Tires (may be switched out to conti attack/force for training and ProRace3 for race days)
Dura-Ace 7810 pedals.
*I have never liked the RXL saddle because it just doesn't fit my rear-end. If anyone would like to purchase my RXL saddle I can ship it out the day I receive it. The bike will arrive sometime this week (Project 1 order) at the shop and I can ship out the saddle same day. Let me know if you're interested. I am not here to make a buck, offer me what you think is reasonable and I will accept.*
PS. Any idea on weight for this baby? I am thinking ~15.5 lbs (~7030g), but hopefully less!
I am also building a bike now with SRAM. Hope I like it.
Do not know much about the Shimano PRO RACE bars, but it indeed looks very cool.
Do you like the Dura-Ace pedals? I have one in my old bike, but will try the LOOk pedal in my new one.
Really looking to upgrade the wheels, cant wait for that handbuilding session. Anyone interested in the Race Lites?
Cheers for looking!
Better pics in the sunlight coming this weekend. =)
14.5 lbs (cheap fish scale) as shown.
Will be updated with actual riding weight in the near future.

I would advise against using attack/force for training, they aren't designed for it, i'd go for GP4000S
Going to be bringing the bike home after fitting session with the boss.
-Dura-ace pedals to go on.
Cages... Recommendations? I would like white ones, but red or black would be ok as well.
-Garmin Edge 500 to go on. (Speed+Cadence sensor integrated into frame)
Waiting for the R45 Hubs (Swift) by Chris King. ETA end of January. Those will be paired with the XR300 and Aerolite spokes.
On cages: I love the Elite Custom Macia cages. They would give you a little 'euro flair' to the bike too.
Cero, the seat hurts my ass. Not joking. I am more of a Selle Italia Flite Gel kind of guy myself. But I have not tested very many saddles to compare. I would like to try the Arione carbon saddles.
Jameslocker, it costs perhaps $8000 CAD.
