    Are those the XXX-lite carbon rimmed wheels? Those are such nice wheels!

    I assume they are tubulars. Do you ride them everyday or just as race wheels? What tire do you like? Have you tried TUFO extreme tape?

    I ask because I too have a P1 Madonne 5.9 Mountain Storm with XXX-Lite wheels (2005 model). I have the new carbon stem and put an FSA K-Wing carbon bar on it. With Time RSX Ti pedals and water battle cages it is sub-16 lbs in 60 cm size. Only problem is the bike is sooo nice I am afraid to race it. One thing for sure - a photo can't do the bike justice!

    Here is my 2005 Madone 5.2

    Here is my Madone 5.2, American classic cr420s, Ritchey compact crank/Ultegra 9spd, easton seatpost, fizik seat. I got it on 3/26. I've got about 200 miles on it. Replacing the American Classic CR420's with some of OddsNEndo's Niobiums shortly. (New wheels are on order, and my old wheels are listed on ebay now)

    Hey John. Yes I have tubulars (Vittoria Corsa EVO-CX). I ride them every day (I dont race). Haven't tried the TUFO extreme tape. Thinking about the FSA K-Wing. Just havent made up my mind yet. Do you like the bar?

    Yes I like the bar a lot. Can make mounting a computer a challenge though.

    Two more for the road...

    I've got one from each end of OCLV history...
    First is a 1992 model year 5200:


    The other is a 2006 Madone SL 5.9:


    I liked the 10 speed drivetrain so much, I updated my 5200 to Ultegra-10:

    the sl 5.9 looks awesome, i like the wheels minus the decals. how did you take them off, any special technique? i wonder if the outline of the letters will eventually fade or remain. definitely looks a lot cleaner, think i might do this with my sl 5.2 when it comes in.

    The wheels actually came that way, they're the "Ti anodized" version.

    oooohhhhh ok that explains a lot. do the race lite's come with decals though or is it graphics? i still think i might want to strip the decals. they're ok on the x-lites but the race lites are fugly.

    Decals, decals

    The Race X Lites on the Madone have what look like anodized graphics. Nothing I can get a fingernail under to peel off, and I wouldn't try scraping.

    The Race Lites on the 5200 have decals. I would think they would come off fairly easily, but I don't mind them at all.
