As someone else mentioned, the '13+ Madones bear consideration, so it is an apples-oranges thing. From what I gather (and from my own limited tinkering/riding), many folks prefer the new Madone to...

Bianchi Intenso, or Madone 5 series with H2 geo would be my vote. If budget allows, Bianchi Infinito CV.

Very nice bike, but IMO hot points get counted off for what looks like a compromised fit.

Beautiful bike!
I think black fenders and racks would be a good compliment. The Planet Bike Cascadia or SKS P35's would be nice, with a Tubus rear rack.

The build looks good. My only thought is...

+1
I like drops for longer road rides or commutes greater than 10 miles each way. I also far prefer the "hood" position when climbing with drops vs. any flat bar (including bar ends) or swept bar.

I lost 5 lbs net, but lost more fat and gained muscle. I have about 5-8 lbs to go to be at my optimal weight. That'll come off quickly with my new 31 mile RT commute. ;)

Nice bike, but holy hell those hoods are high. If reach is an issue a shorter reach bar, straight (not setback) post would help. The stem's already pretty short.
It has potential, but given the...

Keen Austin. Keen cycling sandal. Both excellent in my experience. The soles of both are a bit stiffer than "normal" shoes, but I've walked many miles in both.

They should be fine. It would be best to follow the original lacing, and if there's play between the new spoke head and the hole, I'd recommend using spoke washers.
