Details

You've probably seen a Trek Madone out on the road and thought to yourself "someday." The 4.6 C has the DNA of Tour-winning race bikes with a slightly less-aggressive geometry while retaining all the speed, ride quality and fun of the higher-end models. This full-carbon beauty boasts a stiff, light frame with Bontrager's Race Lite oversize carbon fork that provides maximum steering precision and a smooth ride. It's spec'd will fully legit components as well, including Bontrager Race Lite wheels, a compact 20-speed SRAM drivetrain, even a carbon seatpost. You've said, "someday I'll get fit and fast, someday I'll do a century, someday I'll try a race or two." Welcome to your "someday."

Bontrager Race Lite Carbon fork

Bontrager's Race Lite Carbon Fork (left) uses a standard 1 1/8-inch steerer diameter at the top in combination with a 1 1/2-inch bottom diameter to increase fork stiffness and strength. This ingenious design also significantly reduces the weight thanks to its oversize bottom, which allows using a hollow aluminum crown bonded to the carbon legs (as opposed to the solid aluminum crowns found on most traditional forks; shown on the right). Trek's oversize E2 head tube adds strength and stiffness. The result is an unbelievably stiff and super-light front end.


Trek's BB90.
Trek's Madone features a unique bottom bracket (image, right) that's 90mm wide (traditional ones are 68mm wide). This wide bottom bracket lets Trek build the frame with larger tubes for increased power transfer. Plus, the 90mm bottom bracket is machined so that the bearings can be placed directly into the frame (image) saving weight (due to fewer parts, below), ensuring additional pedaling efficiency and simplifying maintenance and repair.
