    Dude, I'll be lucky if I get a decent frame out of them. I've already decided a 4.7 is an unacceptable replacement for my 5200. If I don't get a 5.1 frame, I'll be livid. Getting them to paint it like what I am about to post, is going to be next to impossible. I leave you the RIP pics of my 5200. Sorry for the quality, all the cameras I ever get break so cell phone is all I use now.







    Next time you guys see her, she will be cut in half, and all her organs will be transplanted to a new donor.

    Your cameras break, too?

    I think that 5200 was doomed when it entered into your possession...

    My cameras die under other people's control. I've not broken one, yet they always seem to be broken when I go to use them. The bike on the other hand was only used by me, and babied. It just experienced it's worst cleaning job. I lost all interest when I saw that fateful crack.

    Hopefully you will get a bike that doesn't clash with your toolbox.

    Get a shadow box made for your half. Maybe add a couple shots of Lance from that era. Maybe he'd sign it, too.

    Yeah right. I rode a cancer benefit century with him a few weeks back. I finished an hour and a half after him. By the time I was done he was on his way back to Texas. Way to be there for your fans! I was lucky enough to ride with him for the first 25 miles. After that I dropped back for my ridepartner/wingman was dropped from our group, and I went back to find him. I wasn't up for the Challenge of bridging the the gap to catch him by myself after that with 75miles more to go, so I guess I suck, and can't meet him. Not to mention he had support vehicle bringing him supplies, and nobody else was allowed support vehicles. So it was near impossible to keep up with him unless you had like 4 water bottles when you started. It's hard to even see him, let alone get him to sign anything.

    Good news guys. The frame is a okay! The cracking is in the paint, and it is common with the carbon frame Treks I am told. It is where the carbon lug meets the tube, and they are bonded together. So my nightmare is over, and I get to keep the bike. So that ugly bar tape is coming off, and the new Fizik stuff will be going on tonight, and I think, I'll even strip here down, and give her the thorough cleaning she deserves. I am so glad it went this way.

    Talk to waterrockets. I believe he had the exact same "problem" on his used Madone. AFAIK he continues to ride it with no problems.

    Yeah, not that I don't trust my LBS, but I googled it anyway. Seems to be a common issue. The first thing that pops up, is an issue a guy had in the exact same spot as me. The second was a FAQ from Trek saying yeah our paint cracks deal with it, it's safe. Go figure. The owner of the LBS put some serious lateral force on my frame to check it to see what happened, and nothing did. When I got home I did notice, another crack in the non-drive side chainstay right at the lug now. I kinda want to retire it before it gets too bad. It is a great looking paint scheme, just not great paint, it seems. IDK, I am just glad it is safe to ride, and I can keep enjoying it, and I won't be stuck with a TCT 4.7 frame.

    I've had the bike since Oct. 2008 but never showed it here. Basically a stock 2008 Tarmac Elite.

    Picture taken during early Spring '09 ride around Lake Geneva, WI. It was a windy day and the bar tape is not pure white anymore . Lots of fun this season. Love the bike.

    Those Dali-melted Pinarello frames freak me out everytime I see them. Besides that people love the aesthetics, which I go back and forth myself (though I really like the black on black), does anyone know what the reason is that Pinarello does that?
