Hi anybody own a Trek Domane. I had a ride on one and was surprised how smooth it felt. Would be nice to hear from any owners.
Cheers Jerry

Bought a 4.5 in January so only a couple of months use so far but absolutely love it to death. Not much more I can say really :D

If you have any specific questions I'm happy to answer where I can

I would have definitely considered it except my Madone was too cheap to say no to. Since owning the Madone though, I'm not sure "endurance" geometry is what I'm after as a cyclist which is the main objective of the Domane - a race bred bike that should appeal to the older crowd who aren't interested in extreme geometry. :idea: If it felt good, there is your answer. Get that one. :mrgreen:

Just picked mine up last week! Very smooth. Also rode the Di2 version which was very nice but I don't have the cash :(

Previously rode a Cannondale Super six but like this more.

The only change is I replaced the saddle with my Prologo PAS, not shown in the photos.

Picked the bike up to day, had my fitting. Rode it home, just finished putting the new bike computer and mirror on. The ride home was very comfy. Will go for a good run tomorrow morning.

Hi
Well I have had my bike about 2 months now, very pleased with the bike. I have done about 1500 km and think the bike is great. The bike is really comfy but you don't know how comfy till you ride a normal bike with out the flexi seat post. I never ride in the rain ( I live in Perth so it's not a problem). I commute to work and try to ride every day. I was not impressed with the bike shop where I bought the bike, but that is their loss. I am impressed with the bike and can recommend it. I average 26 Kim's and its my third bike and I am 60 years old.

Cheers Jerry

Hi Andy, just wondering how the 4.5 is going? I've been looking at one of these but having trouble getting my head around the red and white colour scheme :(

Still loving it. It's great on my ride home with some less than ideal roads and I've even ventured on to the gravel - it seems to handle that way better than my last bike.

Mine is the 4.5 so its black and white, which I like (though the wife's first comment was "that's a bit too collingwood"). I understand the dilemma over colour - you've got to like it to ride it - my favourite was the Di2 version I test rode but that was $2k more :cry:

Let me know if you have any specific questions

Cheers, Andy

Cheers Mate, I've been looking at the Madone 4.5 but it's a red and white Ultegra equipped piece as below:

Looks like I'm going to be waiting for the new range or some sales :wink:

Hi all,

I have a 2013 6.2, which I upgraded with a set of RXL TLR wheelset and a few fit out changes. I love the thing- I'm usually a 56 rider and got the 58, with a 56.5 top tube and I have slammed the stem, chopped it down and just ride the thing everywhere! When the Ultegra dies I will fit it out with Dura-Ace, then it will be sub-7kg. Not that it is what I am chasing as I am firmly a Clydesdale! Go for it!

Got my 2014 5.2 on 9 April (the day before my 55th b'day). Have done just over 500km on it since then. Have replaced the saddle with a Fizik Arione. Also had the tyres changed from 23mm to 25mm. Not sure why it came with 23 but Trek were happy to replace at no charge.

Nothing but praise for the LBS (Gary at Riders Choice).

Have had 3 fits and now very comfortable on it. Have done a 75km ride and a couple of others over 50km.

Very happy with it, looking forward to some more long rides. In training for the Ride to Conquer Cancer in October.
Cheers, Flash
