Trek Madone 5.2 Carbon size 60cm
Fully refurbished and not used since refurb
Custom built in 2013 costing nearly £4000 using SRAM red carbon groupset, carbon chainset, Fulcrum Racing One super light wheels
This bike was new and custom built in 2013. It has not been used in 3 years prior to its full service with us in April 2021 and has not been used since – hence the sale of the bike! The owner was planning to service the bike and get back into riding. The service happened, however the riding didn’t! It is mechanically like new, everything that could be done has been done, no expense spared.

Some blurb from Trek:
Trek’s Madone isn’t just any bike. It’s a Tour-winning machine conceived and built by a company that employs as many carbon engineers as other frame manufacturers have employees. This latest incarnation is startlingly comfortable despite Trek’s justified claim of increased rigidity. Once again, it’s a bike fit for Tour de France winners.
Bike Radar review:
The Madone 5.2 is built using Trek’s OCLV carbon and although I tried to find some flex, I didn’t notice any. Instead, what struck me during my test ride was the impressive degree of comfort this rigid frame affords. Even long training rides on poor roads won’t turn into bone-jarring trips from hell.
Much of the Madone 5.2’s confidence-inspiring predictability is the result of the its headtube/fork combination: on high-speed curves it almost felt like the Trek was on rails.
