I was torn between this model and the Trek Domane 4.7 C. But after a couple of test rides with negligible differences between the two in terms of comfort and handling, it came down to the price and looks. For me, the Modane 4.5 C won out. Out on the road, this bike performs admirably - incredibly light and immediate response makes it the best performing bike I've ever owned. The one thing I would say is that if you're not used to such a light bike, then spend some time getting used to the feel of it. Even small movements while riding will affect the handling of the bike. Its also a little bumpy over railroad tracks. Nonetheless, I can't say enough good things about this cycle. I've been riding it nearly every day and am training for my first of several century rides. I've gotten quite a few compliments from riders and other people on the looks and quality of the bike too.
I love this bike. All my previous rides were metal frames, carbon is a huge upgrade, wish I had bought years ago. Bike is stable, very responsive, crisp shifts. Great bargain.
previously owned a hybrid bike (alum frame)...what a difference with carbon frame..smooth as butter..components are high quality..wheels are so so..will up grade those..all an all i'm very satisfied..plus it's a great looking bike
Coming from a mountain bike background I wasn't certain if I wanted to make the road plunge or how I would do it. I'm delighted I found the Madone 4.5. Solid Construction, lightweight carbon, silent as a cotton ball hitting the ground. I had planned to get a road bike and was gifted the extra money to go above an entry level bike; so glad with the choice. Will upgrade cranks to shave some weight.
