We have it first! Women’s Ultegra Di2 Madone. Affordable Electronic Shifting!

Just arrived at Chain Reaction, the latest Trek Madone road bikes with Ultegra Di2 shifting. Women’s only in the first batch. Why? Because women have had more issues with shifting, particularly front derailleur shifting, than men (smaller hands, shorter fingers make it difficult to push the shift lever far enough to easily engage the larger chainring).

Electronic Ultegra Di2 Shifting comes to a specially-priced Trek Women’s Madone bike at Chain Reaction

These bikes are available for test rides today! They feature the Trek’s top-of-the-line Madone women’s frame (6-series H3), Ultegra components and Bontrager Race wheels. A 16.5-pound package for $5189.99, $435 off Trek’s website price. Customization is encouraged!

PRICE REDUCED EVEN FURTHER ON LAST ONE IN STOCK! The 2009 Trek Madone 5.2 WSD (Women Specific Design) is a perfect combination of light & comfortable frame, great-shifting drivetrain and great looks. We have just one left in 47 cm, which will fit women in the range of 5′ to 5’2″ or so. There’s no guesswork involved; we use the New England Cycling Academy Fit Kit to get your measurements and size everything appropriately.

This is one of the last of the 5-series Madones with the domestic frame using OCLV technology (for 2011, this bike has moved overseas and you have to bump up to a more-expensive 6-series Madone to get a domestic, higher-technology frameset). Another interesting advantage this has over current road bikes is easier shifting of the front derailleur. Shimano recently made a change to “hidden” cables, which look very nice, but add enough friction to the shifting that some women have trouble with the new system who had no issues with the earlier levers.

Our sale price of $2499.99 is $1250 off the original price we sold these bikes for, and a fantastic buy if you fit one.

The bike shown in the picture has a double crankset, but what we have in stock are all the more-desirable triple option (three front chainrings instead of two, so you get a lower gear to make steeper hills easier to climb).

Since there are only a few of these left, please call one of our stores before coming in, to make sure the size you need is still available. 650 366 7130 for our Redwood City location, 408 735 8735 for Los Altos.
