My New Bike so hot...2008 Trek Madone 6.5.

It weighs about 16lbs, full carbon, light years ahead of my last bike, which was a 1986 Eddy Merckx. I still miss the Belgian/Italian bikes, and would still get one if I had a million bucks, but this one is still hot. I swapped the handlebars for a deeper drop and rounder bend. I still wish Cinelli made the 65's. Those were the greatest handlebars of all time.

I've been riding to work 10 miles each way 3-4 days a week. I just registered for a new USCF license, and joined a club here in the city that does training races and morning training sessions. Gonna try to race again later this summer...hopefully can get fit again after 20 years off the bike that included lots of cigarettes and virtually no exercise.

Your bike is beautiful, almost as beautiful as Andrea. So glad you will be biking again.
