Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

New Trek Madone - link to VeloNews' article

Trek officially launches new Madone with Isoflow seat tube - VeloNews.com

didn't see a thread on Page 1 here, so thought I would post it.

Detailed reading or just scroll the pics.

Kinda novel, IMHO. The old decoupler idea was short lived. Like suspension stems (tho being revisited again, I read).
It raced the Dauphine, so UCI legal.
If this is old news, apologies - I rarely come over here, being old school.

Looks are probably polarizing, but shaving 1.1 lbs on the Ultegra version is pretty nifty, along with the claimed 19 watt savings @ 30 mph. Curious how the ride is compared to the old one.

Not the prettiest in the Peloton but looks very business-like. My first impressions were negative but it is growing on me, I don't dislike it any more and the spec's suggest it should be a fast bike, which is all that matters when suffering in a race.

Just exactly how much does it flex?? 1mm? 2mm? Article does not say. Is it simply more marketing BS?

Why does Trek keep coming up with these unique design elements that only last a year or two? From aero wing front brake caliper covers from a few years back to an adjustable iso zone top tube from 2021, now we have a flying seatpost above a big hole. Thankfully routing the shift cable through the frame tightly around the BB is a thing of the past since it appears to be electronic only.

From the linked article...
There’s fully internal hose and wire routing through the new stem which features a sleeker interface with the redesigned spacers, headset, and top tube.
Shift cables may be gone, but hoses for hydraulic brakes still exist and need that creative internal routing.

Huge Madone fan-boy here, and I have to admit that this is a more pure expression of what the Madone supposed to be.
But damn, it’s hideous.

I keep going back to look at it again and again. But for now my eyes cannot get use to it and something just doesn't seem right.

I'd watch Hambini's video first before dropping any cake on that sucker. Just my $0.05.

That's going to be a 1-2 year "prototype" that eventually gets 2 more seatstays from the main seatstays to the tailbone. Or not. You can use your own term for the hole under the tailbone.

Maybe they should sell hard plastic saddle bag that snaps into that opening for those who don’t ride 25+mph to benefit from the reduced air turbulence near their seat area.

Typing in "Hambini 2023 Trek Madone" works as well.

I have no love or hate for Trek (never had one) but gotta admit... I think that's sexy. If the engineers managed to improve comfort without sacrificing performance, reduce drag without too much added weight AND give it a slight supercar vibe, that's impressive.

Wish I knew this was coming out last October when I bought my 2022 madone.

I like the way it looks. The seat situation worries me a little bit. Iím not sure if I had the money I would rush out to buy one. I would like to test ride one though.

I think my current madone is very ugly in pictures. In person, it looks so much better. Not sure why that is.

Was just looking at the white version of your bike. I think itís a good looking bike.

Maybe itís not the bike, but the photographer. 🤔

Very possible, whoever trek hired to take pictures sucks.
