    Post your carbon Trek bikes here

    This could be the most popular bike high end bike in the world. The 5200 and its cousins the 5500, 5900, Madones and Pilots need a place to be shown. This is the place and this is my Trek 5200. It is a 2002 US Postal Trek I bought in June 2004 for 1799.99 at a LBS in northen CA. It is sweet, I love it and have about 2500 miles on it.

    Here is my new Trek Madone:








    Isnt she sweet? Its like that Harley commercial...this is the bike I "almost" have. According to Trek, I should have it some time before the Messiah returns. Either that or before lunch is ready, depending on who I talk to over at Trek. I think there is a shortage of seat post grease or something that according to Trek has thrown the entire bicycle industry into a spiral of chaos. Word is, they may have a human sacrifice in the streets of Waterloo to try and appease the "Bike" Gods. Either way, Im LOVING "almost" having such a sweet bike.

    Thumbs up Pilot 5.0

    I ordered in the first week in January and I picked it up 2/4. I have only put on 100 miles but that was enough to decide it is a keeper

    I guess I fall into the "Here is my New Madone" category. All I have right now is a receipt for the deposit that I made.

    Hopefully May is just a conservative estimate of the real delivery

    Pics will come.

    This picture was taken the minute I got home from the Trek Store and you are right they were sinful and were removed within minutes of taking the photo. The difference between my Trek 1000 and this new Carbon Fiber Pilot is amazing.

    When I saw that paint scheme on the Trek website I wasn't impressed. But, it looks real nice in the photo. What wheels did your bike come with? The '04 madone 5.9 wheels are pretty week.

    2005 Trek Madone 5.2

    Just got this one and she rides great. However, had the obligatory 1st ride flat a week ago.

    Thanks, It came with Bontrager Race X Lite Aero. It also came with standard weight tubes and Bontrager Race X Lite tires. Replaced with Michelin Pro Race tires and Bontrager superlight tubes. The Wheelset I believe is the one that Postal team was using in past years.

    I also have a set of 04' Mavic Ksyrium Sl that spin up real fast and are tough as nails but you really fight the bike in a crosswind.

    Those were the wheels that came with it out of the box. The front rim was already damage in the shipping so my LBS traded it out for one from one of their floor bikes--same wheel though.

    My 2300 is a 2004 frame that I had painted. While it was at paint, I upgraded the gruppo to Ultegra 10. Velomax wheels. It rides great. I prefer the Madone, but I don't mind riding the 2300 this winter. That's why I bought the 2300 in the first place, so I wouldn't trash the Madone in the New England winter.

    I got a great deal on the 2300 because I picked it up at the end of 2004. I was going to grab one off ebay, but I got a new one for just a bit more. There are alot of aluminum bikes with carbon stays and forks with Ultegra parts on the market. I happen to be a lifelong Trek fan so that's why I got the 2300.

    Here she is.....my 5.2 Madone......Trek's paint job is pretty nice. A real heavy shot of clear coat makes her shine. All Ultegra 10 and the new Bonti wheelset.

    Weight Varies...

    ...with wheel selection. The 2300 is significantly heavier than the Madone. With the everyday wheels that I have for the 2300, velomax circuit, it weighs in around 20. The Madone with velomax tempest II wheels is around 17.5 pounds.
