Here' my new 2006 Madone SL 5.2 in Blue Duotone. Looks 1000% better in the flesh than in the brochures. Only changes made to standard bike were the Fi Zi K Arione saddle and a set of Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels. After one short ride and a 45 minute criterium I now understand what all the fuss is about with regards to Carbon framed bikes. This thing is so smooth to ride compared to my old Aluminium Fuji with carbon rear stays and forks. I actually ran my tyres 10psi harder (115psi) than on my Fuji and the ride was still smooth as silk. Still a few minor adjustments needed but so far so good.
