    Plastic disc? Whats this for?

    My local shop had a new 5.2 Madone and it had one on the rear wheel. I mean come on, if you're going to drop $3000 on a bike, you better know how to ride it and adjust it without dumping your RD into your wheel:cool: Maybe I take some things for granted.... Like everyone has a right to have a...

    Ride it or Hang on a Wall ??

    :eek:Key word here being ex-girlfriend ?? I hope that the Bentley-wrapping incident didn't have anything to do with the break-up. And please tell me that you didn't have to pay for it.

    Ride it or Hang on a Wall ??

    Well, if I could afford a Ferrari, I would find a way to afford the maintenance items on it. :D Anyway, I didn't win tonight, so it's back to payments on the 5.2. I would have ridden the 5.9, oh well. Mods, you can close this thread anytime. Thanks for all the feedback !!! -Ken

    Ride it or Hang on a Wall ??

    My LBS has a Lance Armstrong Madone 5.9, one of the 500 made by Trek. They are raffling (sp) it off tomorrow and I just wanted to see what everyone's opinion would be re: whether to ride or display. Of course I bought some raffle tickets; part of the money went to the LAF, the rest went towards...

    Get back with G/F or stay on the bike??? Help.

    How about getting a tandem; and enjoy both at the same time. You'd be able to put in the time with her and put in the miles as well. Just an idea.

    How Fast Can You Go?

    49 mph down a hill in Clermont, Florida about 10 years ago. I think it was "Tour of Sugarloaf". 34 mph sprinting on the flats when I was 17 in NY.

    2005 trek series, when?

    Only going by what they stated in this link. http://www.trekbikes.com/bikes/2005/road/madone52.jsp 110 would be nice, but being ~190lbs, you will hear no complaints from me re: such a miniscule weight difference.

    2005 trek series, when?

    It is not on their website yet. I also found it, through an eBay member selling a Madone 5.2. Trek has replied to me that the specs will "officially" be released at the end of August. DEAFCON: When did your LBS say that you would get your Nude 5.2?? I originally wanted nude, but the wait would...

    2005 trek series, when?

    I agree, it is strange. But from what I have heard (from 2 independent sources), the Postal Service will still participate in sponsorship. But it will be a "quiet" type of sponsorship. Turns out that not too many people believe they should be paying increased rates on postal stuff to sponsor a...

    2005 trek series, when?

    "...they'll drop the price on any remaining 04 models...." That is the kicker, if there aren't any left, then you're out of luck. You could always put an 04 on lay-away:D As for the availability of new models; well they might only bring out one paint scheme for the model right away. And then...

    Sweat in the eyes... headband or?

    I've been using a bandana, dew rag, whatever you want to call it. It works well for me. Covers the whole head and doesn't interfere with helmet fit. And I am down here in muggy Florida, and I perspire just standing outside.

    2005 trek series, when?

    If there are no major changes in components and/or frame material, then I would get the 2004 if money is a concern. It should be on sale and the 2005's should reflect a price increase. At least that is according to my LBS. All the 2004's are on sale at very nice discounts.

    2005 trek series, when?

    My LBS said that my 2005 5.2 "should" be here at the end of August. If not, then by early September.
