2011 Trek Madone 6.9 SSL Compact H2

Lighter, faster, better. That was Trek's goal in creating their best-of-the-best Madone 6.9 SSL. Handmade from OCLV2 SSL carbon, the frame is brutally efficient and amazingly light. Connecting the gorgeous frame to the fork is an E2 tapered head tube for scalpel-like steering. Flowing down, the down tube joins with an insanely stout 90mm-wide BB. This gives you the stiffest possible platform to launch attacks. Perhaps the most ingenious piece on this bike is the integrated seatmast that reduces weight and smooths the road underneath you for sublime comfort. A frameset of this level deserves only the best. It's loaded with top-of-the-line Bontrager XXX Lite carbon wheels, a full Dura-Ace gruppo and Race XXX Lite stem and bars that add the finishing touches of class.

      Comments:

      Tried this bike for a week. The bike is light, comfortable, and kinda responsive. The bike is "twichy" compared to others bikes that I have owned or curently own. The bike requires full attention especially during crits. Making adjustments in your line during a turn or a small bump from another rider causes that movment to feel amplified throughout the bike. If you have not ridden high end bikes such as the Pinarello Dogma or Cento Uno SL, even the Cervelo S3, then I would recommend this bike to others because you dont know what your missing.

      Comments:

      quite a jump from my 5500. Have had each generation of Trek carbon bikes.. Last yr. i ponied up and ordered a 6.9 Madone Project One... I broke my back 8 yrs. ago and was told no more cycling.. Never bought into that and am enjoying the heck out of this new one. It has a plush ride compared to my older ones. Even like the Bontrager race scandium wheels.. 6000 trouble free miles. I ride 5000 or more miles each year..The only thing i don't like is the bottom bracket..It needs bearings every 2000 miles .. I change chains and bearings on a regular basis. The shop I bought it at does all the service as a courtesy for buying i there. The seat was terrible also..I tried hard to use it but gave up and trashed it.. ridiculous seat..couldn't even give it away.
