    2019 Trek Domane SLR 7 Disc

    Hey guys! How are you? Today I rolled into my LBS and looked at this bike with shop owner. What's your guys take on this bike? I've read some awesome reviews. I'm probably going to order it tomorrow afternoon. Size 56 cm got some training to do this coming fall. I'm doing the Project One for this ride BTW.

    I'm looking for a comfortable ride that can handle huge rides. Like Fondos and other activities! Just pure training. I'm not that spring chicken I use to be. I have diabetes and need to get back into shape. So this ride will be my best friend for the next couple of years. I believe you guys understand. All I want is to be happy and healthy again.

    There is no such thing as one road bike beats all. That said when it comes to selecting a road bike that blends speed with a comfortable ride the Trek Domane SLR line is overall as good as it gets IMO.

    Take a look at the Roubaix. Front and rear suspension but more plush. A bit more competitive on price as well.

    That's what I'm hearing. I hear it's amazing and comfortable to ride. Coming from a rider who rides the Emonda. The emonda just didn't feel right to me. Even with a pro fit done.

    I know they will be closed. They have 15 days to ship it to my LBS. Lol!
    I ended up going Gran Premio with Metallic Gunmetal and Rage Red. It looks pretty sweet on the screen. But I'm pretty sure it will look amazing once it arrives. I can't wait to ride it all over California.

    Do they even have bumpy roads in CA to justify a Domane?!?! Here in Wisconsin, small VW's go into the cracks in our roads and never come out, so we need all the 'comfort' we can get

    Be careful when you get it... kind of looks like it's giving off some noxious gasses or something

    In Southern California, you need the comfort of a Domane for all the miles you are able in a year due to near perfect year-round weather.

    That looks like a real nice color scheme! Congrats and enjoy! I have one and it is so much fun. The adjustable isospeed, although i don't adjust it a lot, is really nice the times that I do.

    Congrats. Beautiful bike. I love my SLR, itís a versatile fun ride on dirt or the road. I did last years Saluida Roubaix with 28s and although it got a little sketchy in the larger gravel it made the dirt roads enjoyable. With the disk I think you can go to 32s.. Nice ride. Have fun
