2012 Trek Madone 4.7

Swoopy descents, serpentine roads and epic climbs; Trek's Madone 4.7 was made for these and more! Constructed of Trek's trick OCLV Carbon, this beauty is light and stiff for top-notch power transfer and efficiency, while remaining impressively compliant for ride-all-day comfort. Complementing the sweet ride is a Bontrager Race Lite oversize carbon fork for maximum steering precision and control. And, this amazing bike is built for action with Bontrager's Race wheels, which are seemingly effortless to get up to speed, a compact Shimano Ultegra 10-speed gruppo for quick shifting, and a host of Bontrager's quality Race components, too.

    Comments:

    I am in my mid twenty's and was looking for a great first road bike that I could grow with over time. I was looking for something that was all carbon with a comfortable frame and once I test road this bike I know it was the perfect fit. With a smaller budget i was looking to get the most for my money and i found this to be the best deal with full shimano ultegra components and full carbon. The bike also looks better than most bike i have come across. I have so far had this bike for 6 months and put roughly 500 miles on and have no complaints thus far. It is extremely fast, very comfortable, and I keep up with cyclers who have been cycling for their whole lives. I would definitely recommend this bike for anyone who is looking to get the most for their money and someone who likes to push their limits and wants a bike to support them.

      What a difference a full carbon frame is. I was riding an old aluminum Fuji with a carbon fork before buying this Madone. Man what a difference! It rides smooth and it shifted great, not to mention the price was just right for my budget and didn't break the bank. A great buy and overall a great bike!

        This is my first real road bike and it makes me very happy to be able to ride in group rides with other seasoned riders. I also own a Trek DS 8.5 which is a great bike also but this 4.7 Madone is extremely fast. I highly recomend this sport bike to anyone who enjoys riding fast and steady. It really feels like all power is delivered to the wheels. You wont go wrong with this bike!!

        Comments:

        THis was my first carbon bike and I was going from an Alu Bianchi with nice Campag wheels. Even though the Bianchi is a good ride, the Trek beat it. The main differences? More comfortable, the higher front end on the H2 setting is better for Sportives, it's lighter for climbing, the Ultegra gears and especially the brakes are brilliant. I bought the bike also because I like the red/white paint job, so I guess I can't complain if I have to spend some time cleaning it. This bike is a pleasure to ride - the miles slip by.

          Great ride for a great price! All carbon and full set of Shimano 105 components make riding smooth and fast. Great at climbing, and solid down the hills. Seat may need to be upgraded, however having only gone out a few times, still breaking it in.

              I got the 4.7 to complement my mountain bike habit. I did not want to break the bank so I thought I was "settling" for a 105 components. In fact this is the perfect bike for me. I ride about 120 miles a week and just wore out the first set of tires. Trek hit the sweet spot for components on the 4.7...and yes even the seat fits me fine. The 105 components work as advertised and I have no thoughts of upgrading. It has a nice wheel set that are still true. This is more bike that I thought I was getting.

              I just got back into ridng and Bike Doctor of Arnold recommended the 4.7 to me. I love the ride. handling is effortless. I read some complaints about the seat, but I haven't found it to be an issue for me. have done several long rides and they've all been great! Tires could be better, but I'll change them out when I gat the chance. BTW, white is a tough color to keep clean. My wife picked up the 4.5 and she loves hers just as much

                okay everyone who complains about the seat I cant comment on, I got mine to race on for free so i cant complain about price either. the brakes, im not sure stock as well. mine came with a fizik arione saddle, the stock wheels and tires, but i got mine with full sram force with sram red brakes. the thing stops, shifts, and accelerates when i need it to. It could be a bit more stiff but I like to sprint so I can feel most frames flex a bit but that helps with comfort on longer rides. If i were to upgrade i would change out the wheels for something else id get mavic ksyrium elites. pricey but a bombproof lightweight training/race wheel. that and continental gp4000s tires and thats all thats really necessary for a slightly more race specific bike.
