    Trek Domane Thoughts?

    Good idea?
    Cheating?
    Awesome?
    Do you want one?
    Will it help Fabian?

    Having the name of a crappy electronics store painted on it doesn't help him.

    Doesn't help him in what way? Why would anyone care who the sponsor is, especially if just a simple electronics store.

    Domane has a good beat and easy to dance to.

    And yet another flavor of Trek Kool Aid for the ignorant cycling consumer to latch on to

    Yep. More "borrowed" tech from other companies run thru the Trek Marketing Machine.
    formerly "backinthesaddle"

    Strava is Latin for 'bench-racing"

    8000 dollars for a bike that handles rough roads possibly no better than my mid 80's 753 Bob Jackson a bit pricey.

    As someone who keeps his bikes for a long time, I wonder about the "bearing" between the seat tube and top tube/seat stays.

    To me, it sounds like trek is trying to access a particular area of the market place. This is good for any company that desires to maintain it's market share and continue to grow.
    Specialized has the Roubaix, now trek has this in their quiver. Good for them. Perhaps this will mean more manufacturing back here at home.

    I think it's a cool idea - I'd like to see it work.. Surely better than Spesh's zerts. If it works, we'll see it everywhere in 2-5 years..

    (for the record, I own an SL3 tarmac)

    Curious to see how the bearing system works exactly.

    Wonder if Volagi will file a suit?

    MaDone... DaMone. They swapped the M and D, and pronounce it da-mon-ee. Kinda cool.

    So, it's a suspension frame. I suspect we'll see it on more of their downstream line - not for racing the cobbles, but coddling the non-racers.

    Awesome and I want one.

    I don't understand the negative comments toward Trek. Picking a bike is mostly fit and feel. If one feels best on a Trek...so be it.

    Ever ridden a Madone? Before I bought my last 6.2 Madone I rode a Speclalized, 2 Bianchis, a Felt, a Cervelo, and a Cannondale. All considered similar to the 6.2 Madone. I thought my Madone felt the best of all, hands down. I really wanted to help out my local LBS and buy Bianchi but there was no comparison.

    If you don't like Trek, ok, many do. You don't have to like Trek just as I don't have to feel comfortable on your favorite bike.

    Cancellera has said he will also use it in the Tour de France. Apparently was his desire to do so and not just because Trek is pushing him to do so.

    I think its a good idea; added compliance is always a plus. Cancellara looks good and the ad is somewhat inspiring. I'm pretty much not interested in anything made of CF..but for those who are, it may be of interest.

    On rewatching the ad, I couldn't help but notice how rather small and ugly the bike looks next to Fabian. I mean, he looks good, but the way the pros are fitted nowadays...their bikes always look ridiculously small. But thats another point altogether.

    "Domane" makes me think of "Ptomaine".

    That is all.

    I can clearly understand the passion in supporting your favorite brand, but passion in slamming another? Kind of weird. To each, thier own.

    I can understand even having a passion for dislike (I have one for specialized). The part I don't get it the need to post crap on a forum. If you don't like them fine. It doesn't mean you have to post negative about a topic someone is trying to get some genuine feedback on. A little self control would go a long way on the internets.

    Yes someone call Trek and tell them they just wasted thousands of dollars and man hours in r&d because your mid 80's bike will possibly handle like this thing. Give your head a shake

    Please tell us more about it since you have apparently ridden the Domane.

    Yup, and Cannondale has the Synapse. I'm sure the initiative has something to do with Cancellara being on the Trek team. He needed a bike for the Classics and the Madone is not it.

    Doesn't look at all boring to me: the shaping of the frame and its tubes as well as the inserts shows quite a few interesting ideas, IMO. Shame that FC's injured.
