Lighter, faster, better. That was Trek's goal in creating their best-of-the-best Madone 6.9. Handmade from OCLV2 carbon, the 6.9 is brutally efficient, ultra light and breaks the status quo with a tapered 1.5-inch headtube/fork combo that makes your front end super stiff for scalpel-like steering. Flowing down, the downtube joins with an insanely-stout 90mm-wide bottom bracket. This gives you the stiffest possible platform to launch attacks with every watt of your energy going to road. Perhaps the most ingenious piece on this bike is the integrated seatmast that reduces weight and smooths the road underneath you for sublime comfort. A frameset of this level deserves only the best and you get it with top-of-the-line Bontrager Aeolus carbon aero wheels, Shimano's Tour-winning Dura-Ace components and Bontrager Race XXX Lite stem and bars that add the finishing touches of class.
