My Cervelo S5 Review
As an owner of a £7k etap trek madone and a bog standard ultegra / generic carbon frame bike worth c £1.5k, the madone is marginally quicker (particularly above 20mph), more comfortable and nicer to ride, but being honest there is probably <2% difference between them .

Trek Madone SLR 9 eTap Review - Peloton Magazine
It’s not hard then to imagine what we think about essentially the same bike, with a few grams cut out. So, this is more of a review to confirm that, in fact, shedding weight from a bike while keeping intact the characteristics that made it a top-tier aero bike does make it better, even if it’s only a little bit. With so many brands today trying to make one race bike that does it all—balancing low weight, aerodynamics and stiffness, Trek unabashedly keeps the Madone as a go-fast aero platform

How Much Difference does a Higher End Bike Make for Performance?
I've got a £2k carbon ultegra bike, and an etap trek madone. The madone is possibly 2-3% quicker, particularly over 20mph, however on a good day on the cheaper bike, I'm faster than an average day on the madone. Madone is much more comfortable and enjoyable to ride though.

Currently: 6-4" (76 in), 200lbs (accurate), 35.5" inseam - riding a 2022 61cm Specialized Allez w/26cm stock tires and a 2" stem riser (b/c the bike is slightly small for me it turns out). Looking at a 62cm Trek Domane SL6 - 12months to order \~$4500ish inc taxes (The Crimson red / Black top - best looking paint I've seen) But it has some thick ass 32cm tires that just look like a sunday stroll in the part and it's not visually appealing to me to see that kind of thicc rubber. Also looking at a 62cm Trek Madone SL6 - LBS has one arriving Monday (its the vibrant red which I don't really care for) $5000ish (inc taxes) comes stock with 28cm which look nice - but what in the world is up with the stock AL & Carbon fused wheels. It has disc brakes so why would they even try and combine two different types of materials to save what?

Trek Madone SLR 9 Disc review
Tuning tip Semi-compact crank Helmet POC Ventral SPIN | Glasses Oakley Flight Jacket | Jersey POC Essential Road Windproof Jersey | Bibs POC AVIP Ceramic VPDS Bib Short | Socks FINGERSCROSSED MOSAIC | Shoes Specialized S-Works 7 Once more the Madone impressed our test-crew with its good-natured, precise handling. So good in fact that it let’s you adjust your line incredibly precisely without feeling overly twitchy. The rear-end follows suit and makes the Madone feel stable at any speed while inspiring tons of confidence

I am not a trek fan but this seems like good value and an overall nice bike. Also have one in stock at LBS and can get it whenever. ​. Also considering a Trek Madone SLR7 (though will need to go far to get one) and the Aethos Pro.
I want a faster ride.
The Madone is a bit heavy and getting the handlebars on is expensive. If you are not sure on clip on aerobars, a TT bike is not an option at all.
