One upside to crashing-New Frame

SInce I sheared my fork off and cracked my frame last Friday, I obviously needed a new frame. I called Scott Daubert at Trek and within 10 minutes it was all set. I drove the hour from where I’m staying in Delavan to Waterloo, home of Trek. I’ll post more about the visit later, but I have to get to the bike first. Scott somehow got me the new 2010 Madone. Not too many of these around. Plus, two experts to put it together in about 20 minutes. I only got to ride it a couple hours yesterday, but that was enough. Scott told me I’d notice a bigger difference than the last upgrade they did 3 years ago. I was skeptical. But, way off. This frame is so, so stiff. In a great way. It is the biggest ride difference I’ve ever experienced riding a new bike. And I’ve ridden a million. Plus, they took somewhere close to 200 grams off the weight. It is silly light. And it goes forward fast. Okay. Below are the photos.

Alot of the stiffness is in the super wide bottom bracket shell.
