Madone 5.2 2013.


That looks like a very upright position for a Madone. Is that due to the size of the frame?

Praise be to Fred. That's TWO TT bike designs on the planet that aren't totally nauseating to look at :D

MarkG, I've never thrown a leg over a TT bike, wanna explain the handling issue? I like a bike that corners well...

My guess is the stiffer body positioning (bum up, arms out) which means you can only really shift your weight to the side rather than 'steer'.

Just a guess though.

The frame is a 58, although it does seam smaller than that, but I believe that is due to the H2 fit.

What do you think of the new brake placement? Can you tell a difference over normal?

The brakes have great stopping power. They can be loosened to pop the rear wheel from the front stem.

It seams that Trek have thought about alot.

Only time will tell...

It's a true shame that the same can't be said about the speed concept. Super fast and clean, but the world's biggest ballache to wrench...the new madones with the H1 geo have got me thinking though, particularly with the reports of decent brakes...

It's not going to ever climb like a Cannondale Evo etc, but it's ok I guess.

I'm in Trinity Beach :-)

We have a social ride tomorrow at 6.30am from the front of the hospital. It's also training for the Cardiac Challenge.

Sorry for the hijack!

Just starting to get back into riding after my Avanti Gyro was nicked by burglars.
My new 2013 Giant Defy. A spare tube and fold-able tyre hide under the seat so I can replace and fix later. 90kms in and the standard tyre blew-out, hopefully these gatorskins will do the trick.
