How do from UK

How do.

Newbie but some great info on here.

Just upgraded my old 2006 Madone 5.5 thought it would be useful to register rather than lurk as will be tweaking the ride once I get used to it. Picked up last Thursday done 563km/350miles but having a few days rest now

New ride..



Upgraded the wheels, gumwalls, and chainrings from 50/34 to 52/36. Rides well, very smooth and fast though I need to loose a few pounds to get the most out of it. Full spacers to start with but couple gone already as it was top heavy but no rush with the others for the moment. Thought about a different seat but the bont is really comfortable. Will upgrade at some point to either ultegra di2 or dura ace mech but for the time being Im skint

Its Trek Madone 9.2. Really pleased with it so far. Another pic from when I picked up. A couple of the spacers have gone
