    Trek Domane 5.2 vs Ridley Fenix Di2?

    I have ridden several bikes and decided on a Domane 5.2. I test rode one yesterday. Today I was offered a new 2013 Ridley Fenix Di2 for only $2750 shipped to my house. The Domane will run me $3400 +tax. Should I take a chance and order the Fenix I have never ridden or stick with Domane? Any Fenix owners out there? How comfortable is the ride. I love the Domane ride quality, just not crazy about paint schemes.

    owned a few ridleys but not a fenix. Have a madone 7 now. It rides way smoother than my excalibur. And from what I understand the domane rides even better.

    I rode a Madone and Domane back to back and the Domane did ride smoother. Madone was nice though. The 5.2 Domane was even smoother then the 4.0. I like the idea of the Di2 on the Fenix, but no dealer around to ride one.

    Well you can get any of the above with Di2. The Fenix I'm sure is a good bike, hard to find fault with any high end bike these days. More likely to find how one rides different than another. My buddy who rides a madone 5 but test rode a domane decided to stick with a mad one. He liked the road feel better, as in didn't like, but mostly didn't need, the extra comfort of the domane. I got a 7 in H1 and that allowed me to dial in my fit perfect.

    I would stick with the one you know fits. If you really want Di2 upgrade the Domane. FWIW I love mine.
