George Hincapie took the yellow jersey in Stage 1 of the TdF with the all popular Trek Madone SSL. According to VeloNews, this Madone SSL is only 1 of 4 in the world. Given Lance's prototype Madone SSLx of last year, I wonder what prototype bits are in this frame?

Update: Cyclingnews.com has news of Trek's Madone 6.9 SSL frame, a "true horizontal top tube sub 900g frame". New carbon (Defence Grade High Modulus Carbon fiber - that's not the name, it's the type of carbon) and new "Low Solids" paint allow 56cm frame to weigh 890 grams. This Madone version is lighter than Lance's SSLx bike of the 2005 TdF. Check out the special mount to screw on weights in order to meet the UCI 6.8kg minimum. Read more.
