2016 Trek Madone Preview - Seatube compliance design

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

Bikes are looking more and more alike, it reminds me a lot of a venge. I do like how neat the front end is though.

Really? I think they look wilder and wilder. Cast your mind back to the 80s when everybody was using the same diameter steel tubing and bikes really looked alike.
