    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!

    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.

    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.

    race x lites are lazer etched.
