There are also subtle differences...for example, he uses a Deda Newton stem, and if you buy the bike from Trek you get a Bontrager lite stem. Different handlebars, too, from the stock bike from Trek.
But the frame and the groupset (Dura Ace) are the same. Stock stuff.
The TT bike is a different story, entirely.
They experimented with an ultralight carbon (55 I believe down from the 110 they use for the 5900 and the Madone series)...the new Madone take out the seat post aero package and rounded out the seat stays. On the 5.9 they have more of an aerofoil shape.
