    Bontrager products are now being sold at REI.

    Probably not. The manufacturer forums are all but dead.

Anyway, from Trek's perspective, they have no idea what was poured on the Iso Decoupler and under "normal conditions", it doesn't seize-up. I'm not saying you did anything wrong, but perhaps the water you wash your bike with or your sweat is unusually corrosive. A warranty certainly won't protect everyone from everything. I personally have had great success with Trek warranties from my LBS... they even replaced a mountain bike wheel that I specifically told them was damaged in an accident


    I also have a Domane 5.2 and I'd say the ride between a regular road bike and a Domane is like being hit with a regular hammer versus a rubber mallet It doesn't turn every ride into a plush, pillowy dream, but certainly takes the edge off of a normal road bike. I love my Domane and would easily buy another one.
    I own a Domane SLR 6, great ride. I witnessed our local trek bike shop warranty older carbon frames that were questionable at best. I think Trek is a good company and will stand behind any reasonable claim.

    This might be slightly inappropriate but I always thought Bontrager was Chinese for I screwed another American 😀

    Isospeed Maintenance

    Is there a consensus as to how often and how much maintenance you should do for teh Isospeed decoupler. Will taking it completely apart and relubing wear out the bearing bores?

    AFAIK there isn't a maintenance schedule for the Isospeed decoupler.
    My 2014 P1 Domane has ~35,000 miles on it, and the bearing looks clean.
    The seat tube still flexes as it should.
    At least I'm enjoying the ride.

    I've been on group rides and races watching how the seat tube flexes whilst in a paceline...Pretty amazing, would love to test ride one some day.
    In reference to the Assault on Mt Mitchell...

    I'm on a first generation that can't be adjusted. The frame is a 52cm, and I weigh 148 lbs, so it probably doesn't flex too much.
    I don't actually feel it flex, but I do feel the difference when I'm on my 10-yr old Madone.


    I may try one of the newer versions soon.
    At least I'm enjoying the ride.

    FWIW, the bearing size in the Domane rear isospeed decoupler was 6800 for several years. I found the size in a 2017 service manual and it fits my 2013. Dunno whether it changed after that.
