Trek Madone 6.2 Compact 2011 Road Bike

Trek Madone 6.2 Compact Overview

The Trek Madone 6.2 Compact is a road bike, which comes from a range of top tier, professional grade cycles, ideal for those who consider cycling to be a real passion rather than a part time hobby. For this type of dedicated person investing the necessary capital to purchase this bike will be worthwhile and it should be obvious from a quick scan of its vital statistics that this is a very accomplished bike. Let us take a quick tour of the Trek Madone 6.2 Compact to see whether its revised 2011 form is suitably cutting-edge.

To provide lightness and aerodynamic shape the Trek Madone 6.2 Compact has a carbon frame designed so that the cabling runs along the interior to reduce drag. Further carbon components feature on this bike, including the carbon Bontrager seatpost and the carbon fork from the same manufacturer. Elsewhere Shimano has its stamp on the gears and brakes, giving you a good deal of control over how the bike handles and performs. Everything on this bike is geared towards limiting the total weight, which means even the saddle has been hollowed out to cut down on a few grams. This may seem superfluous, but on the professional circuit every little helps.

With a black frame with yellow detailing the Trek Madone 6.2 Compact is a handsome road bike that actually looks a little more focused and aggressive than its more expensive siblings. Bold Trek branding makes sure you never forget who made the bike and the presence of the Madone nametag will let others know what class of bike and rider they are facing. In short, this is a good-looking, high performance road bike, which makes few compromises.
