New Trek Madone Headed for Tour de France?
Spotted by VeloNews editor Caley Fretz at Dauphine is a new Trek Madone 7 road bike. While not particularly called out as an aero road bike, it gets Shimano’s new Dura-Ace aero road brake under the bottom bracket. It definitely gives the bike a sleeker overall appearance, and moves weight downward for a lower center of gravity.
Interestingly, the fork, besides have some pretty skinny legs, gets the rear facing dropouts like the recently announced Domane.
Looks like the Radioshack Nissan Trek bikes are running older cranksets with power meters mixed with all new DA9000 components.
While not particularly revealing, this video shows the RadioShack team service course, and about two minutes in mentions that the riders will be on new frames for the Tour de France.
Thanks to Will for the tip!
