IMHO, I am sure you will find better at that price. I had a Trek 2300 with 105, was the best and smoothest shifting bike I owned. DA could not shift that smooth!!

I am sure I've seen a few specials. I will check them out and post a reply.

 

Remember, all the 2008 bikes will be launched shortly, so they will be specials on the 2007 models.

I am aware of the new models coming soon but I am fine to ride the 2007 and capital on the discounts they offering now.

Check out the Raleigh RC7000C with full Ultegra and the Giant GT2 carbon, also with full Ultegra. Both frames are also Compact Frames compared to the Trek.

 

Then again, it is your personal choice!!! Good Luck & Enjoy!!!

The RC7000C has been one of my first choices for a while but never looked at the Giant GT2.

 

Thanks, will go shop around a little

The ride is smooth

Great buy for that price!!

I have the Madone 5.2 WSD, got it from Cyclelab too... they make sure everything fits & will swap out anything you don't like (I wouldn't recommend the Bontrager saddles) Wink

Thanks 101%.  Mine is 110mm or maybe 120mm not sure.  I've been meaning to put it on the notice board to see if anyone wants to swap...

I was told it was too long for me when I got it but it was the only XXX Lite one they had & I really liked it... Embarrassed
