Got the frame from Ebay. I didn´t pay more than what would be like 2400$ for the whole bike, but there is a lot of work in this too. Frame was a Trek Madone 5.5 SL in grey.
I got my hands on some brand new Dura Ace 7800 levers, which I think are the ones that looks best on this bike, I got the rest of the 7800 group set from another bike.

Now with the obligatory Lightweight photo. The wheels belongs to my brother, who´s doesn´t have the time for cycling at the moment. Weight with these and some other stuff 6789 grams.

And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

Looks great. :thumbup: I think I'd prefer to see it with full 7900 though rather than 7800, but that's just me. 7900 pedals would be a nice touch.

Fantastic looking Madone.
I've got a 5.9sl 2007 in the Disco colours and have always wondered what it would look like nude.
How did you go about stripping the paint?

thx

That is a great simple build. No frills, clean, and straightforward. That's hot.

You should do the same with other DA parts... just like with the crankset.

+1 on the how... I have two stealth builds going and would love to know how you did those cranks. They look super clean! Great job.

Incredible build, congrats :thumbup:

Love everything but the pedals, but hey, that's a personnal thing.

The crankset is awesome, I still ride a 7800 too.
