      My FT watts per kilo is 4.47 which puts me in the lower cat 2 range. I'll be pretty happy if I can get to mid cat 2 range by my target race.

      Cool! I've head good things about the stages meters, and you can put them on different bikes if you're running the same group which is really nice. Now if only Shimano would get on top of things and...

      I think the Madone 5 and above have more aero profile than the 4 so if you're dead set on a trek, that may be the better route. But like everyone else said, there are other road bikes that are better...
