Is it Madoan or Mad-1?

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

Madone

Just wondering about this one really. I can't seem to understand how this is pronounced.
It could be either:

ma-doné
madoan
mad 1

and so on.

So which one is it?

also after the domane i think trek's next road bike should be called the mundane, it kinda follows the current naming recepie there somehow and it also reflects the level of innovation and dedication of the company.

I always thought it came from the Italian exclamation, "Ai, Madonna mia!" pronounced "I Marroan!" or just "Marroan!" near where I grew up.

A guy I ride with who is a trek geek and works part time in a trek store(oxymoron, since its inconceivable how someone can geek over boring stuff) pronounces Domane as Dough-mah-nee. I assume thats correct.
Madone is pronounced Mah-dohn. Why it isnt pronounced Mah-dough-nee in a fake way like Domane is beyond my pay grade.

Then Trek just mailed it in with Emonda.

What a confusing way to name bikes and not clearly differentiate what each is designed for.

Name comes from the Madone where Armstrong supposedly regained his mojo.

I think most people I have heard say Mad-own or something like that. The correct way is, of course, Mad-on, with the emphasis on the on.

Emonda inst mailed in...
Trek jsut used the same letters... Emonda, Madone, and Domane all are anagrams of each other. Me thinks they were trying to be clever.

Another vote for Mad One. I don't care how Trek prefers to pronounce made up words. As mgopack42 noted, Madone, Emonda and Domane are just word jumbles of the same set of letters. Do Name. Mean Do. Dame On. Nom Ade. Mondae.

But if Trek gives me on, I'll pronounce it Freebike!

Yes, im aware the 3 bikes are the same letters just in different orders. Thats why I said its so confusing to have names 3 different bike designs sound so similar. Its also why I said Trek was mailing it in- I dont find it clever to use the same letters for 3 different bike styles. They had the Madone for 10ish years and the Domane for a couple years before they launched the Emonda. Its the 3rd of the 3 lines and they mailed it in because they didnt even attempt to make a bike line with a good sounding name. Instead, they just mixed some letters around on bike lines they already had. <------ Mailing it in.

Whats really funny is that Trek claimed Emonda is from the french verb 'emonder' which means to prune, as in to cut away any excess weight from the bike.
So they apparently had a bike line for over a decade, added another bike line with jumbled around letters of the first, and then two years later they name a new line of bikes after a french word that describes pruning and it just happens to also be a jumbling of the first bike line's letters.
Trek is incredibly lucky, incredibly insightful, or incredibly full of it. Perhaps all three.

Coincidentally, this week I visited the LBS, a Trek shop, and handled/fondled a bare Emonda frame. Good grief. If not for the palpable sensation of touching a hard frame, it was pretty close to lifting nothing. If they filled the frame with helium and sealed it the darned thing might float.

But without a cheat sheet I can't remember which Trek frame is supposed to be better for which type of course/terrain/race. Trek model names don't quite convey purpose the way Specialized model names do.
