I am looking at a new bike and I am comparing the Madones to the SL3's. Looking at the Geometries of these two bike, it looks like they are very similar. I am going to go ride both bikes but is there any real difference in the frame as far as sizing is concern?
I am replacing a 55cm Kestrel RT700 with this new bike and am not sure which will match up better, the Specialized or the Trek.

Anyone know the geo's of TREK and Specialized bikes to comment on the numbers they post online. Are the sizes going to be the same once you consider the angles of the Head and Seat tubes? Specialized seem to have a shorter chain stay, does this result in fast acceleration?

thanks for the help.

I've never rode any but out of experience I'd never buy Spe. I've got club mates who bought Spe's and changed rapidly after, often to Trek's. My mates had too many probs with Spe to buy one therefore it's only my opinion, and if you look at this year's TdF ; 1st and 2nd ride Spe so I don't know what to think..
