    Nice Bike!

    Are you sure your shifters aren't Ultegra 6700?

    None of that's Ultegra SL, it's 6700...

    Looks good!

    What is the paint finish like? Is it a pleasing grey? I very nearly went for that option - but I could not get comfortable with the pictures on the trek web site and my LBS did not have an example as its an optional finish.

    Did you get a frame and fit your own components or go down the P1 route? My reason for asking is that i notice you have already swapped out the Bontrager wheels for Mavics.

    I went for the standard Bontrager Race Lite wheels on my 5.2 - but nobody on the forum seems to have a nice word to say about them and I am already worrying whether bad wheels will undermine the experience....and that perhaps I should be thinking about upgrading already! (i have yet to get my bike so yet to try them).
