Review 2013 Trek Madone 6.2 Aero Road Bike - Reviewed by Scheller's Lexington

2013 Madone 6.2 Aero Road Bike from Trek - Smoother and Faster

You may have always wanted a Trek Madone.  Maybe your heart said yes and your pocket book said no.  This might be the year when your head and your heart overrule the purse and you finally get your Madone.  


James Huang at Bike Radar had this to say about the 2013 Trek Madone:

As expected, the aero claims are eye opening: 25 watts of saved energy at 40km/h compared to the previous Madone – nearly two minutes per hour. We can't verify those figures ourselves without hitting the wind tunnel – and they certainly can't be felt while out on the road – but what we can confirm is that Trek has carried over most of the existing Madone DNA to produce yet another solid ride
Huang goes on to note: 
Virtually everything is carbon fiber, too, including the bearing seats for the integrated headset and bottom brackets and the rear dropouts. Once again, the non-driveside chain stay incorporates a pocket for the ultra-tidy Bontrager DuoTrap wireless speed and cadence sensor.

You can see the changes, feel the changes, get excited about the changes to the 2013 Trek Madone 6.2. The frame is 600 series OCLV carbon which uses advanced aerospace materials and weight-saving, performance-enhancing process to have the best blend of frame weight and strength. Trek knows that the better a bike fits, the greater the comfort, stability, power, and control of the ride. They use their H2 fit which features a slightly higher head tube to put less strain on your back and neck. Trek has really taken time to make sure that this frame fits women specifically.

Going from frame to components, the bike comes equipped with an all Shimano Ultegra drivetrain. The shifters are Shimano STI 10-speed. STI is Shimano Total Integration, and it allows the rider to easily switch gears from the same location as the brake, should you need to do both in rapid succession. The STI shifters control the front and rear Shimano Ultegra derailleurs, which means you can be confident that each shift is going to be swift and sure.

To ensure your comfort, Trek went with Bontrager for the saddle, handlebars, and grips. Bontrager is the industry leader when it comes to comfort, ensuring the rider that the bike will be extremely comfortable as well as reliable.
