Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The bike is hot... calling BS on ownership of the $1.5M+ worth of fancy cars until proven otherwise.

The pictures were from a show in TX and only three units with that particular paint scheme were made, if I remember correctly, so just playing the numbers game is a "highly unlikely."

Hot r Not

2013 Tarmac Pro Dura Ace with Stan's Alpha 340 wheels. The color's not for everyone... But I think it looks awesome in person. And, of course, it's a blast to ride!

Sold the frameset a couple months ago. Last I checked, its being ridden throughout the mountains of Spain. I had planned on replacing it with a Storck but when CC failed to notify me of the delay, that was enough for me. For now, the Ridley is my only bike now but contemplating on a '15 S3 or going custom with a Baum or No.22 frameset.

Okay, I generally like Madones and I do really like the paint scheme you picked for this project one. The area that bothers me with your bike is the front handlebar area. There is just way too much black up there...needs more color.

And this is for anybody reading who happens to be working for Trek's design department. What's with your skinny fork going into a massive headtube? It looks wonky....change it.

Edited: wish you would have taken another picture of it slammed and posted that. I'll hold my vote until I see an updated photo.
