Started looking at new bikes, I did not like the big fat wide down tubes on the Trek Madone series. I found a new 2009 Trek TTX 9.5 that with the seat post reversed had the same geometry as the Bianchi. The LBS made me a decent swap and put road bars and Ultegra levers on it for me. I really liked the bike, it was faster than the Bianchi. I will ride anywhere from 20 to 60 miles on a given ride. I was in Oklahoma last fall to ride a metric century with my daughter when we noticed some cracks in the TTX fame. Long story short, Trek replaced my TTX frame set with the SC 9.9. It may look weird to you but at my age I do not care what people think. I love it, I like the way it looks and rides. For me it is perfect. I am no longer flexible enough to get into a really good aero position, thus the relaxed fit.

    Unforgivable,

    Seriously dude, I'm a 24 year old investment banker, AKA exactly the type of person you'd expect to ride an abomination like that. Fortunately I'm a bit more classy than some of my peers At 68, I'd expect you to be too. You claim to have been riding for more than twice as long as I've been alive, but I still have to judge. That bike is just such an abomination, I had to weigh in, I'm usually an overly positive guy when it comes to people's bikes and gear, just because they can't afford the nicest plaything doesn't mean that their bike isn't awesome to them...

    But you sir, you are a grown man, and at 68 years old I'd really expect you to have a bit more class, I ride with a guy who's 63, and not only does he keep up, but he rocks a really awesome calfee carbon that looks like a steel bike from a distance, he just looks natural on it, and its a really sweet bike, leaves me with my high-fallutin' Madone lusting. But that TTX is just ridiculous, and I don't know about you but tri bikes don't handle nearly as well as a proper road bike, do yourself (and cyclists everywhere) a favor and part out and sell your toolmobile and buy yourself a proper road bike. Just as an example, for that money you could have bought a beautiful colnago steel frame with SRAM Red on it, which would be just as fast for you, and infinitely more comfortable,better looking, classier, and better handling.

    I agree about the 6700 hood shape, its got that chunky bulge which is a little weird, and I don't have small hands... I'm still playing with them to get the right positioning there, I really miss my old 7700 stuff, but the price was right and they do shift/break great.

    If you like your seat further forward, a time trial bikes will fit better. Anyways, a bike doesn't need to be comfortable, it just needs to be comfortable enough. It's not like road bikes are designed to be comfortable. If comfort was the deciding factor for picking a bike, you should be laughing at everybody who doesn't have a recumbent.

    I'm also under the impression that time trial bikes are more aerodynamic than road bikes.
