Custom Trek Madone 6.9

Postby steveinthepeaks » Fri May 03, 2013 17:25 pm

I was very lucky to acquire a Trek Madone 6.9 from a current world champion on twitter :wink: . Needed a bit of a re-spray, so off it went to Carbon Bike Solutions (NB's paintshack on FB). Still awaiting the forks as they forgot to send them :roll: .

Going to be building it up with a selection of Campagnolo (Centaur Red/Black & Veloce) and Deda finishing kit, nothing flash mind as i'm on a budget.

I'll post more pictures and spec when it's all built up.

Now THAT's custom. Great paint job, really mean looking. If I saw you on a start line I'd take notice for sure. Very interesting approach. Did you do the fork the same as the stays? Hope so.

Custom is an odd word with bikes: some peeps walk out of Evans with a bike, add a bottle cage or swap a stem and think it's custom. Really though, the second you adjust the saddle to your high, any bike is custom.

Show it built up please!

Why would you have it resprayed? If it is from the current world champion, I would want to keep it in it's original colours.

The frame was over 3 years old and the paint had started to flake.

I'm not too sure about the red stripe on tyres now mind, might go back to straight black.

+1 for loosing the tyres.

Some all black ultremo's would look great.

Plain black tape and your onto a winner!

Yep decided the tyres are going once I've got enough funds.

Also black bartape is on the cards. Just waiting on a new braze on adapter for the front mech and were almost there. :D

Have you put the cables on yet?

If your going black tape & tires, might look good with red cable outers.

Black cables, as this is a budget build I'm using the ones with the shifters. If money was no object the yes I would have considered it.

I really like the frame and paint finish, it deserves some nicer wheels.
