I have a 2003 Trek 5500 and am wondering just how much different the new Treks ride. I haven't ridden any of the new bikes yet, so I'm looking for some feedback.

Damn, this seems like déjà vu for some reason.

There is almost no way to answer this other than to visit your LTD and try out one of the new Madones. The 5500 was and still is a great bike. A real workhorse. You may be pleasantly surprised, or meh, find no real difference. When I am dialed into a favorite ride, I don't like to mess with things too much.

But be careful, new wheels and newer components are going to feel tight compared to a well ridden 6 year old bike (of course I may not be making valid assumptions here).

Really try one out, also try out other offerings too, not just Treks.
