    New Dream Bike

    I absolutely love my Domane, but I want a new Madone SLR 6 so freaking bad!

    To each their own... I thought the Domane I test rode last summer was superb but if I had to get a Trek I'd go for an Emonda.

    I get why, but the Madone reminds me of an F-117 stealth attack aircraft.

    Still waiting for the Ademon to come out :P

    Yeah, this thing screams speed and racing lol. I have been doing a lot of mixed terrain riding as of late (hence the Domane) and I really love it. It's extremely enjoyable. Given that I enjoy it so much, I have been thinking pure gravel bike for gravel races, but this thing has me wanting an aero speed machine. I am not sure I really want to jump back into crits (risks seem to outweigh the rewards at this stage of my life and who would want to crash a bike like that anyway), but maybe I could hook up with more fast group rides or add in some TTs with it??? I am searching hard for a justification and plan for this bike here, so feel free to help a dude out!

    I guess I could always put knobbier 33mm CX/gravel tires on my Domane and use that as my fire road and gravel bike and use the Madone as my pure all around road speed machine or something like that. I just hate having a bike laying around that I never really ride. I already have an extra 2016 Ridley Fenix AL that I keep on the trainer.

    Not sure, but they are all up on the website.
    Right now, my plan is to trade in my Domane for the SLR 6 sometime later this year and then add a steel or Ti gravel bike to compliment the Madone.

    I really like both the BMC and the new Specialized Venge, but after owning a Domane, I would go with the Madone over them. I really like Isospeed, what you get for the price, the look, and how Trek bikes fit my body.

    Orbea has released a similar model as well and it is significantly cheaper than the rest.

    There isn't one yet. The SLR 8 is mechanical Ultegra w/ disc brakes. The SLR 9 Disc is Dura Ace Di2.
