Kris and his badass new Madone

Kris and Dean arguing about whose bike is the most badass. It might be a tie, but don't tell him I said so.

Kris and Dean arguing about whose bike is cooler. It might be a tie, but don't tell him I said so.

We finally got a chance to see Kris’ super-sick new bike. He didn’t want to do a full reveal until he had the right wheels on there, but whatever. This bike is sick. The only downside is it makes him even harder to keep up with. This is the same bike Alberto, Lance and Levi rode in the Tour. It is the bike Chris Horner would have ridden if he had been in the Tour.

Actually, this bike is a little sweeter than the model Team Astana rides because it has the electric Dura-Ace shifters. The blacked out paint job also looks pretty slick — I would have probably gotten one in custom colors with flames and stuff (Trek does that you know) but this was most probably the better choice. Either one would have looked much nicer than than the paint job Lance’s bike was sporting at the Giro.

This electronic shifting is sweet. Almost enough to make me want to give up Campy hotness -- almost.

It would have been REALLY trick if Trek had made a special frame just for the electric shifter guys. Perhaps this hole can be used for smuggling the performance-enhancing drugs that Kris might have taken today. It sure was hard keeping up.

Lance might have ridden better in the Giro had it not been for this nauseating paint job. Kris' rig is much cooler.
