Ride quality has got better on this latest Madone, although it’s a subtle improvement. Whereas the previous bike offered a reasonably firm but somewhat wooden feel, this edition has a little more blood flowing through its veins, with a livelier and springier personality along with a little less jarring over bigger pavement imperfections – and that was obvious before we switched to 25mm tires.
It’s still no magic carpet, but we found the new Madone 7-Series a willing partner during a 5 1/2-hour day in the Dolomites. Four big passes – including 2,900m (9,540ft) of vertical gain – left us physically drained but far from beat-up.
Trek says the updated Madone’s beefed-up chain stays lend a more solid foundation for the bottom bracket-located, direct-mount rear brake caliper. Truth be told, brake performance is undoubtedly improved over the Madone 6-Series we reviewed earlier this year.
