Madone delivery

I attended an in shop trek demo yesterday in Chesapeake, VA. I asked about delivery issues and was told that the problem with Madone and 5900 deliveries is that Shimano is not keeping up with demand from Trek. The Trek rep Dave told me that Trek is Shimano's biggest US customer and that supply of (especially) 10 speed Dura-Ace has been VERY low.

Incredibly, if you had ordered just a frameset or a Project One paintjob, you would probably already have had your bike!

Good luck, hope this helps.

Madone

I have only ordered the frameset. I seems to be more difficult to get the frameset than the complete bike;

Just got mine

I heard that getting the frame only was going to be delayed, and that most frames were going out as complete bikes. Just picked up my Madone (full bike) today. Wow!!! I hope it rides like my 5900.

Not to knock on what you said that your rep said. I wanted to get a madone and was told about the delivery problems then the same thing was said about the 5900. It was the fault of shimano. But when I showed interest in a kestrel evoke I was told that I could have it in a week or two with full dura ace 10. The specialized sworks is available in all frame sizes and both dura ace cannondale are available.
my question is what's the real reason for the delays with the treks

Spoke to Trek rep today

NO DELAYS WITH DURA ACE. Only delays from Shimano are with Ultegra 9spd NOT Dura Ace. Trek only has problems with delivery on Madones due to some fabrication (paint) issues. Not sure who made up the Dura Ace thing, it isn't true. 5900 are readily available and if your shop says otherwise call another shop

Pic of new Madone

Here's a preview pic. I'm trying to decide between Full Campy Record w Carbon Cranks....or keep the 10 speed Dura-Ace. I'm definitely keeping the Campy Full Carbon Hyperon Tubulars.....Also swappping out the 75mm shorty Bontrager stem (came with the 50cm) for 100mm (the right size)

I've also ordered a Trek Madone on October 4th, but in size 54. I've also no idea when the bike is coming. It might be, that Europe hasn't the highest priority for Trek. :(

@trauma-md
Nice picture.
Do you have another pictures, to shorten my waiting time? :rolleyes:

Week 13, that is still a long time for you :( , i hope my Madone will be delivered at the same time. Then are we both happy. :D

I suspect that my bike is coming later, my dealer has no idea when it comes, that's not a good indicator. :(

by the way
I've ordered the complete bike.

We finally delivered our first Madone to a customer the other day. It was a 50cm that was ordered with us back in August.

My LBS told me, that my Madone will be delivered in the middle of may 04, after 7-8 months of waiting. :mad:

It seems Trek have a Problem with my Size, i have 54 cm, the dealer told me that some bikes in Switzerland are already delivered, but all in different sizes than mine. :(
