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

My friend got one and the paint started to crack near the BB and head tube, he thought the actual frame was cracking. He was real bitter.

I thought Trek went out of business after all the bad press they got from BF's.

Here is my dad and his...he loves it and puts a ton of miles on it. The Madone has relegated his once beloved Serotta Legend Ti (with the same paint scheme) to the bike rack.

Mine is great, currently using a 2008 fork on it though until I get the 2011 replacement for it since I broke mine in a crash.
