Product Details

2011 Trek Madone 5.5 Compact H2

Hungry for more velocity? Trek's Madone 5.5 delivers a delicious ride with speed to spare. Speed comes courtesy of Trek's TCT carbon frame, which boasts ingenious technology that makes every ride better. The 90mm-wide bottom bracket gives you a stiff, efficient pedaling platform, the integrated headset and BB cups press directly into the frame to save weight and the seatmast saves even more weight, and adds compliance for long-ride comfort. The Race X Lite Carbon fork boasts a tapered steerer for precise steering and awesome efficiency with minimal weight. You also get Bontrager's Race Lite wheels that let you carve corners and fly up climbs and you'll love the gorgeous looks, and quick, positive-shifting action of SRAM's Force group.

      Comments:

      I bought the 2011 model just after the new 2012 models were introduced and saved a significant amount of money. I think the only difference is the new frame on the 2012 models can be fitted with the Ultegra electronic components and the paint color was changed. Although I don't race and ride exclusively for exercise and recreation, the Madone 5.5 is extremely fast and climbs well. The H2 geometry provides a more comfortable riding position and enables me to spend longer hours in the saddle. My 56 cm bike with pedals weighs 1-2oz over 16lbs. The bike is light, responsive and handles great. I also like the SRAM Force components, shifting is smooth and efficient. This is my first road bike, so I did a lot of research prior to purchasing and concluded that the Madone 5.5 offered the best bang the buck in an above average price range. Based on past bike buying and selling experience, I decided to go directly with what I thought would be my first and last road bike purchase. I believe it's more expensive in the long run to buy less bike now when you intend on upgading later. Unless your goal is to do some serious racing, you will never outgrow this bike. It's a great performer and fun to ride! The Trek Stores in the Pittsburgh area are terrific, especially at Robinson Town Center. A good bike shop will help you select the right bike that will satisfy your riding goals and needs. Hope this helps!
