I fell over a guardrail the other day while being retarded at the end of a long ride. I think I was zigzagging too much while being out of gears and then I just steered the bike into it. It was that stupid. Got some scratches on the bike but all else is okay.

In terms of aesthetics, you should
fix the handlebar angle
set your saddle level to the ground
break off the plastic disk connected to the rear cogset
lose the kickstand
take of the tape on the top tube
tuck the posterior man bag tighter underneath the saddle or lose it entirely
lose the bottle cage on the seat tube
set the quick release levers to be parallel to the fork blade/seat stay

The saddle is the correct angle. the flared end is supposed to be up like that.

Two bottle cages is standard. Unless you are in a criterium race or the compact frame is too small for a seattube cage, two is fine. Sacrificing a 2nd bottle cage in the name of aesthetics because some poseur told you two is wrong is retarded.
Where did you hear/read that you should only have one bottle cage? Pros have support cars and domestiques to bring them fluids and they still use 2 cages, so why would you only use one when drinking more than 1 bottle means having to stop to refill?

Yeah, I've seen the seat positioned either way. The flair makes "flat" difficult.

As for the bottle cage, I'm not saying cutting your water carrying capacity in half is always the most practical decision, but on a frame that small two cages always looks weird.

Yo sorry for the late reply.

The frame is awesome. It's going-fast oriented, so it responds very fast to whatever it is you're doing. Pretty stiff too. Not very forgiving on bad roads, but I wouldn't call it uncomfortable. I have another bike with a more relaxed geometry and it feels horrendously sluggish. If this is the type of bike/riding you're after, I couldn't recommend it more.

Beware however, as owning something like this can be a one ride ticket. Soon enough you may be buying Friel's book, riding by yourself on nights after work, and cursing your diet.

Tires are Michelin dynamic classic. I liked the color and they were dirt cheap, but I had 5 flats in one month after I started commuting every day, so I've now replaced them for a pair of Marathon Plus. Not nearly as comfy, but they roll fine, and I haven't had a flat for 6 months now.

The Sram S7 (still available new) has the indexing in a clickbox on the hub. You can use any friction lever with it as long as you glue on the outer cables so it can transfer force both ways over the shifting cable. Or you could use the levers and clickbox of the Sachs Torpedo Super 7 (pic related), which has identical indexing steps. This is what I'm planning.

Sturmey Archer has DT shifters for their 3 & 5 speed hubs. I don't see a rear brake, which makes me think it's an s3x, but that hub has a DT shifter available, plus it's not suitable for off-road.

Right now the only thing that keeps it from being covered in rust is a good wiping with WD-40 every two weeks. Kind of annoying but it works. Clearcoat doesn't work well on polished metals, I haven't yet found out about a good way to conserve it that lasts permanently. WD-40 actually works better/longer than most of the wax/oil based rust prevention products I've tried.

Is there some way you can make it look like K.I.T.T.? Maybe a vertical light bar on the head tube, I bet that would avoid the Cylon reference and still be a recognizable riff.

Just picked this up for 230 $. I dont know about prices in the US, but here it's a pretty damn good price.

... Except that the STI are not shifting properly. It's like the internal mechanism does not always "grip", so sometimes i move the lever, and nothing happens.
Any suggestions are welcome, will probably also post about this in the GBQ thread.

Other than that it's in geat shape! No rust og dents at all, and only a very few minor scratches/paint chips. The chrome on the forks and right chainstay is in great condition aswell.

Frame size is pretty much spot on, but saddle and bars are way too narrow. Suggestions for a new bars are welcome, i'd like a more or less flat transition to the hoods, but I'm afraid compact bars will look out of place on this bike. I suspect its a 26.0mm clamp size.

Great looking bike, where are you going touring?

Also, why did you put your computer there? Why not make/buy a little accessory bar if you don't have the handlebar space. You can mount your Cygolite there too.

Trek sized this generation of Madones strangely. In the old-gen Mad-ones, I rode a 54 with a 120 stem. In this generation, I needed a 56 with a 130 -17º stem to match seat-to-bar reach, but more importantly, BB-to-bar length. I still occasionally wish it was longer.

I'm 5' 9.5", and could comfortably ride a 58cm, minus the testicle-smashing against the do-not-squeeze top tube.

Pretty standard if you're using your middle finger to brake. It's not really worth criticizing people for, especially when you don't know their riding style.
