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

I like the blue on the frame, but could do without the blue tires. Looks nice. Your description is confusing though...what parts are DA and which are Ultegra?

Derailleurs and Crank are Dura-Ace. The rest is Ultegra.

I am not sure about the tires myself. I am thinking about putting a grey or black on it... Some one borked up a project one order, so I picked up the bike for 3000... ( thought it was a good price? )

It also came with one of the Bontrager RXL InForm Saddles. I will have to make up my mind about that after a few miles or so.

I'll post mine. It's not new, but it's new to me.

2008 Madone 5.5

Pretty much bone stock. Will probably swap out the saddle.

I'll also try to get a better pic of it sometime.

Nice Madone Jinker. For some reason it looks really big... haha. Maybe a 61 frame?

The red/carbon looks nice
