This Or That! Trek Madone 4.5 Or Look 566 Ultegra

Thinking of getting either of these and would like some opinions on them. Have read lots of reviews but nothing like hearing real would opinions!

So what's your?

Currently on a Madone and I know it fits me well.

Both around the same price. Will be putting my Mavic Ksyrium Equipes on which ever one I may choose.

Hoping to hold on it for a long time too!

Both are awesome bikes. The fit of the bike is what is truly important. Get the one that fits you better. Grade of carbon, what BB or brakes or handelbar tape is completely inconsequential.

Look has an Ultegra crank and brakes, Trek has a 565 crank and 105 brakes. That's one difference if they're the same price. But fit trumps that. You know a Madone works for you. Ride the Look and then decide.

Didn't do it for me for some reason.

I went for the Madone in the end. The Look was a smashing bike but the fact, as mentioned above, that the bike fitted me and that I knew I could just jump on with minor adjustments was a deal breaker.

Here to many miles and to getting to my target average!
