A rep brought one in the LBS today in 58 size. It is AWESOME ! The design and features rival Treks' TT bike and the smooth lines are just exceptional. Its very different then a regular OCLV. this bike actually was at the TDF but Lance sent it back since it had to much"ply" in it. Apparently it was to heavy but amazingly stiff. This is one of 6 custom built Madones for Lance. I will take some pics of it tomorrow...I will be sure to be at least 100 feet away from it so you cant any of the details LOL...I will get close ups of the tubes and stays.
I hate you. I'm jealous! nmDrone 5200

Hey Carbon,

Maybe we could torture the board and have a Hi-res file spy pic exchange and then talk about them here instead(laughs).

How about we just send pics back and forth between the two of us over email. I don't think anyone here is really interested in a half dozen digi pics of a Madone LOL! I mean, its only the sweetest thing on two wheels

Will the Madone hold up a 6'1 190lbs rider? Any comments?
