    Does Trek make good bikes?

    Why does any recreational rider even consider spending 8-10k for one of those when they can get a really nice custom for less? I'm not great at math but it doesn't add up for me.

    $11.9k to be more exact! Add some pedals and you're over $12k before tax.

    Does it have batteries and a motor hidden in the seatpost?

    And seriously, how fun can it be to ride? It doesn't have SRAM S80 wheels!

    The article looks legit enough. I thought maybe my calendar was off by a day.

    I wish... But I've seen this story from a few sources, so it seems real.

    this might be the place to remind ourselves of that little bit of homespun wisdom from surly.

    or not.

    sheeeyit. that's a lot of collecting cans.

    at 5 cents a returned bottle, that's like a million bottles.

    $12,000 Korean Won = $10.59 US Dollars

    Not bad for a new bike.

    tell me again why any recreational rider needs a "classics" type road bike? Do a lot of people ride their road bikes over cobble stones on a regular basis?

    from what i read, it might fit 28s. it will fit 25s for sure. it has hidden fender mounts, which i find both cool and odd for a race bike.

    all of them go through project, thats why it is over 4k for teh ultegra. the 10k is for di2. and i am not trying to justify the pricing. i went to a trek store today in search of a white whale (the irwin) and was shocked (shocked!) at what the prices were for treks. for instance, the district 2, that was there 2-3 years ago, is still $750. a womens trek flatbar 15" 7.x (it may have been fx. whatever. regardless, its a flatbar commuter/recreational bike) with 105 rear mech was "marked down" to $1799.

    Anyone notice that Domane and Madone are anagrams?

    That was my first thought when I saw the article.... They're going to make a new line of bikes, but they can't even make a new name for it? It seems like a half-assed attempt at showing that the Domane is related to the Madone -- the names are too similar to show the differences between the lines, but the names are too different to show that the lines are similar.

    Sounds like Spartacus liked the ride of his old Specialized Roubaix more than the Madone. I think Trek needed to come out with a competitor to the Roubaix anyway and this was as a good a time as any to do it. Prices are comporable to the Roubaix line as well.

    Did you all notice how freaking fugly the mock-up is in the Project one application? There must be 40mm of spacers under that freaking stem.

    Also, I think it would look rad with a front suspension fork.
