This is a great time of year. Its hotter 'n hell, there's a fresh copy of the VeloNews Tour de France guide near my toilet and the big bike companies start previewing their new bits gearing up for Le Tour.
The latest to do so is Trek. VeloNews has just released some photos of the new Madone 7 at the Dauphine. From the author's comments and the photos, it sounds like Trek has intregrated some aero design into the new frame...Kamm tail foils, under BB rear brake, wide set fork legs, the whole aero nine yards. This makes an easy choice for those who want to ride Trek but have been wondering about all those other dudes and dudettes on slick Specialized Venge's and Scott Foil's. With the intro of the Domane, and now an aero Madone, Trek looks like they're serious about the most popular segments of the market.
We'll see how much of this pro version of the 7 comes to the public, but all in all, it looks promising. It makes me glad I've put off my new frame purchase a bit! We'll check in with my favorite shop once the new bike is available.
