    I just got this bike last week. 2002 Trek 5500. 9-speed full dura-ace. Really smooth ride and responsive handling. If it's good enough for lance I guess it will work for me :)

    Nice 08 Madone! First one I've seen posted by an owner. What size is it and is it the Performance or Pro Fit?

    deda tape, dark greyish color (i don't know the accurate color code, sorry! but there's at least another greyish color which is a pretty light grey). but it was quite hard to get, i only found one dealer in germany & austria who had this color in stock.

    Hey Scott - Thanks. Good eye, the seat is at almost 70, I think it was just a lil under at about 69.85 on both bikes.

    Here's mine. The picure taken doesn't do it too much justice though.. :mad2:

    edit: I'll post a new picture soon with new bar tape as well as a DA crank which I'm now using since a few months back.

    Is that a CK headset? Did you have Trek remove the lower cup or did you do it yourself? Mine is currently back at Trek having it removed now. Has it solved the problems? What fork did you go with?

    Yeah...went with a Chris Kind headset...

    The original Cane Creek headset started making noise last year. I then became aware of the replacement that Trek was offering. Sooo, my shop sent the frame/fork back...Trek put in the sleeve (to eliminate the 1.125-1.25 fork taper)...

    Got back the frame with a new fork. Not sure if its RaceXLite or not...it was an alu steerer and was 440 grams uncut...

    The Chris King was not included in the swap though...I decided to put that in myself...

    No problems since then...front end feels much much better...

    Since I got the 5900 used I am having to pay for the fix myself. Trek is charging $50 + shipping for the sleeve. I picked up a XXX Lite fork and a Ritchey headset for $200 on Ebay so I will be ready when it gets back.

    It's a 54 cm 5.9 SSL.

    yeah I'm getting a new stem with some rise in it so I might lower the stem and hence, I haven't cut the steerer tube yet. (not fork!!! I wouldn't wanna cut my fork dude :yikes: )

    I'm still trying to figure out how to resize photos on my powerbook so I could post a better picture with the new crank and bar tape on it.
