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 2013 3.1. It was my engagement present from my fiancée just over a year ago. It's seen 7,000 miles, 25 races, 2 wrecks, one win, and a wedding in the past year, and I've loved it. Even my cheapie Vueltas have been flawless and more than a pound lighter than the stock bontrager rims.

7000, that's some serious miles congrats!

Some nice steeds in this thread, if nothing else we Trekies (Sorry Shatner), seem to use our bikes for their intended purpose. Lemond's are beautiful, I owned one a long long time ago, very acceptable here!

This was my last Trek (2005-2012), sold it to a nice fellow in NYC. 2003 5900SL, super light and fast but a little too aggressive for me in these later years. Dura Ace 7800 first year 10spd, upgraded to DA wheels in 2012, and downgraded to an Ultegra Compact Crank in homage to my weary bones.

I've never ridden them. But that particular set belonged to my brother before it belonged to my son, and they both have had nothing but good to say about them.

I had an older version of Aeolus wheels on my Madone 5.2 and liked them a lot. I switched to Boyds to get Powertap going.

I tried out a set on a demo program and liked them a lot, and frankly think that much of the Bontrager stuff is really nice, but I have a hard time wrapping my head around the prices of the Aeolus, Zipp, etc when there are so many good options out there a la Boyd, November, etc.

Does it have to be a road bike?

I have a Trek 3900 MTB, not as sparkling new as yours but looking better after probably the best clean its had in a long time.

I do worry, with Trek's propensity for asplosions, that if all y'all "unite" you might hit a critical mass of some sort. Like UseNet going sentient and launching cyber-attacks on ANYONE wearing Lycra, or perhaps something as mundane as the carbon in the chips in the servers hitting some sort of sympathetic resonant vibratory pattern.... and then some foo' IT guy dials up a server past 400 watts... and KABLOOEY! No more Internet.

Just be careful, is all I'm sayin'. Maybe a rule for this thread that no consecutive posts with photo's are allowed? Moderators...?

Only slightly related: Domane. Is it pronounced "Doh-mahn-ay" or "Doh-mahn" or "Doh-main"?

First stop a thread on bikeforums, next the world with each person wielding the jagged end of our broken seat stays.

Thanks! It's a nice ride and I love the campy 9. It's relegated to trainer duty now that I have a fancy plastic Chinese trek to play with.

Off topic sorry! I'm 5-10 and ride a 54 cannondale looking at a madone that's a good price but it's a 56. Can I pull it off? I know the only sure way is to get on the bike but don't want to drive out there if it's going to be to big. Thanks

Love my Madone 3.1.
Ksyirum SL Wheels / Specialized Phenom expert seat changed out from stock. Also running Armidillo tires. (I hate flats and it's worth the extra weight)

Riding out on PCH.
