If Lance was allowed to show so litlle seatpost, than I am too!
Last but not least, we have the same number of Tour wins....
Have you ridden one? Trek were advanced carbon manufacturers at that time but it was early days in tuning frames for comfort and engagement or rider. The earlier Madones were a little wooden in ride quality. I wonder if you may miss the Colnago for its engaging ride? Let me know, as I would be similarly tempted for a pretty high performance retro project.
Good luck with your new bike when you get it.
I believe it will descend nicely!
No, I will leave in color. I can still remove it some day if I decide for that. And if I then have some "excess" money, I`ll maybe buy an Edge fork too
milroy, you still have it? How is/was it??
It has definitely been one of my more successful bike purchases. It never gave me one problem. Some say Treks ride wooden but I found it comfortable and the geometry perfect. Honestly I reckon I could have just about fallen asleep on that bike and it would have found its way home.
Your post has given me motivation to build her up again.
I just wanted to show you my old madone (at last i found a pic)
A lot would be different if i should build it now, but i still like that frame, and a few other things.
The worst thing about it was the fork, Alloy steerer. I changed it for a alfa q, even thoug the original looked much better, the alfa q was very good.
