    I can put Dura-Ace 9070 on the Madone 7 and use all Dura-Ace except for the Bontrager brakes that are built into the frame-right?

    I am switching the mount-what you see in the pics is a ROK<>FORM mount for my Samsung S4. I just got the Garmin and a new mount for that-so it will be up front and look fresh. The new Zipp SL Sprint 110mm stem is on it's way too!

    The bontragers still come off... the term is integrated (not built in) .. if you use DA brakes you have to get the direct mount version for front and rear.. BR-9010's.
    They modulate better, feel better and have more stopping power then stock... but like I said stock is not terrible. Ofcourse pads make a difference.. Zipp's premium pads are pretty good anyways.

    If you ever plan on getting a stages power meter.. stick with your bontrager rear brakes... the brake pull will hit the device with DA brakes.

    That's good info-thanaks. I'm going to stick with the integrated brakes and upgrade the rest of the group to DA 9070 Di2. This will be okay, yes?

    I'd shoot you an offer, but it'll probably seem kinda low. New 6800 groups are available for under $700 via the UK.

    yeah that's ok... brakes on my wife madone is a mishmash .. DA front and Tektro T750R rear.. for now it's ok. Might eventually go back to the Bontrager rear myself.. kinda waiting for somebody else to come up with something. There is always EE direct mount coming but $600/set is steep too.

    Nice bike indeed... 9070 kit is really nice, I'm glad I went with it.

    I haven't even tried out the Di2. Im off tomorrow and hoping my bike shop is open and has a bike with Di2 I can test out. Do those who have it really LOVE it? Is it worth the extra $1K or whatever?

    dtrain- I'll do $500 shipped priority with tracking. Everything is brand new and is from USA dealer, not shady overseas dealer. I buy all my gear local from authorized dealers. I'm new here but I'm a photographer and here is one of my threads on my photography forum. You can see I have over 200 transaction with perfect feedback on their buy & sell board. I don't mess around-everything would be bubble wrapped, packaged extremely well and shipped 2-day fully insured.

    Beautiful looking bike and very fancy photography work there. You must've had a fun day with your camera and the bike. Bike photography is very different from the other kinds of photography I usually do. Very hard to get a natural look in them the way you can take a picture of nature or a car.
    Your bike reflects your attitude and your personality.
