    Like I said, I test rode the original when it first came out. I was looking for something to replace a 2011-2012 Cervelo R3 and I had no issues with the geometry. I think increased stability is usually a good thing for most recreational cyclists (particularly on tricky descents), especially if you are not racing crits or something like that. This bike is stiff enough, light enough, and fast enough to do whatever you want with it at a high level, but it seems to add in an extra level of comfort that is a nice addition for us aging folks out there (I'm 43). I'm clearly biased, but the simple fact of the matter is that pretty much everyone that threw their leg over this bike in the last couple of years has raved about it. I say find a way to test it and find out if it is for you.

    Then compare the reach and stack of the Domane and see if you can adjust stem length, angle and spacer to match fit... if that's your goal.

    There are online calculators Tha make doing these comparisons easier.

    Thanks for the info. I have looked a lot at TT, HT, Reach. I haven't considered Stack much. The Domane has a longer TT, shorter Reach and taller HT. I would maybe use a longer stem.
