Have you seen Trek's "Bikes of the Tour"?(4 posts)

Have you seen Trek's "Bikes of the Tour"?Drone 5200

It's up and running. Fun stuff. LA's new ride is called the Madone. No more 5900? And what's with the 5200 section? Makes it look like everyone on the USPS team (other than Lance) is riding an Ultegra equiped 5200. But I digress.

What think ye?

Well, the Madone 5.9 is the replacement for the 5900 - I assume that there is a 5500 with Dura Ace - They were riding the new 5200 frame in the Dauphine & Catalunya with 10 speed DA. Trek's web folk might not know their own produact :)I also find it interesting in the specifications that they call the 2002 tour winning 5900 a 2.52 pound frame.. in the past they advertised the 5900 as a 2.2 pound frame.. but as you say - I digress :)

Continuing the digression, Trek formerly reported (read: made up) their weights based on 56cm frames. The new deal showing the 5.9 indicates they're talking about 58cm now. I own a 58cm 5900 and 2.5 lb is about right. And it's a more legitimate standard to measure, as Trek's so-called 56cm is more like what other companies would call 54cm.
