Ssl 5.9

here's my ride... absolutely wonderful to ride and handle. Cant see myself wanting a new frame but I might get a new frame anyway just to try something else.


Cellphone camera quality (selected VGA coz any better resolutions would make the file size too big. DAMN IT.. How do you guys take quality pics? I have a 4MP digi cam but I guess the file size would be too big.. Not to mention the dimensions.. :idea: It's driving me nuts. )

Man I love the nike trek paint job!!!!

As for pics, take a high quality pic with your camera, put it on your computer. Download a program called "Pixresizer". Its free and deadly simple. It will resize the photo for you to the size of your choice. Or I can do it for you, just PM me.

Oh and daddy yo yo, thats a freakin awsome set up on your postal bike.
thank you. i loved it too! but i recently sold the frame, fork and the cinelli ram parts (bar/stem-combo & seatpost). i ordered a madone ssl 6.9 frameset and will go for syntace parts instead (f119 stem, racelite carbon bar, p6 seatpost). check them out on their website, i can really recommend those (not only for weight weenies). the rest of the components will remain (campy record, zipp, fsa crankset, etc.).

btw, i here's one more pic of my postal-bike with my regular wheelset (campy neutron carbon).

For all you Madonians out there, do you like the bike or wish you puchased something else? Any criticisms of the Madone?

Love every bit of my SSL... Light, stiff, responsive, handles awesome, accelerates very nicely from under me...

Climbs well, descends nicely.. Stable... Goes in the direction I point the handlebars to without any hassle at all... Can weave it through a cone obstacle course FWIW.. (Don't ask why I did this.. I was bored.... Didn't use cones but yeah..)

Could't ask for more... Oh yeah, maybe I could.. If only they came with Lightweight Standard wheels at the same price :D :D
