Trek Madone.... Pro?

    What is the difference between the Trek Madone original and Trek Madone Pro? I can see from the photos that the frame is different but why is this?

    Which madone is this? I'm guessing the frame will be higher quality carbon or have extra layers to make it thicker, and by the looks of it has a shorter head tube to make the front end stiffer and give it a more aggressive position

    It might also be that they are one and the same bike but have different brand names one for Europe and the other for USA. Possibly some dealer got a cheap shipment of US ones and is selling them off. Both models in the photos certainly look the same and both seem to have Ultegra groupset.... Interesting

    You can buy both models from evanscycles... Madone 5.2 or Madone 5.2 Pro..... just wondered what the difference was?!? odd.

    Above - The white is Madone and black is Madone Pro

    Yep, head tube looks shorter on the black one. Also, is that Ultegra SL (or Black, or whatever) compared to standard Ultegra? I'm sure it makes cock all difference to anything expect the price.

    Finally, the cycnical part of me says that the 'Pro' has indeed got 'Pro' written on it, and will therefore be more expensive.
