2010 Madone 5 Series

Love the new 5 series Madone in it’s 2010 colours.  I wouldn’t mind upgrading my 2008 model with some fancy deep section Bontrager Aeolus wheels. Finishes it off a treat.

Check out the site’s nifty ‘Build your custom bike’ feature, enabling you to order your very own Madone with choice of drive train, components, paint scheme, wheel colours, and even a personalised signature decal in one of three fonts.

They’ve also added a few videos with Levi, Alberto and Lance himself illustrating the science and technology in the bike, as well as the origins of the name now made famous by 9 Tour wins. I’d love to get over to Nice and climb the Col de la Madone one day!
