Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Interesting. I have often heard "it's cheaper to buy the bike built" but the Domane 2020 pricing may not line up with that. The SLR frame is $3299. The cheapest SLR Di2 is $8299, so $5000 more. That's about how much I paid for my Cannondale SuperSix Evo Di2 (4th of July sale) + upgrades to a Bontrager Montrose Pro carbon saddle, Ultegra crankset (to replace Cannondale SI+FSA), Bonty Pro 3 carbon wheels and tubeless tires, Dura-Ace chain and brake rotors.

I could have my LBS move the transmission and wheels over to the new frame, buy handlebars and seatpost, and still have a SuperSix frame with the OEM wheels+tires, seat, crankset and handlebars to either eBay for cost recovery or spend a little bit to build a second non-Di2 bike (maybe 105 or standard Ultegra).

Nope. Not gonna do it. Can't think like that. I can hear the wallet crying.

The LBS had this one built. It looks good outside in the sun.

BTW, the DI2 battery fits in the little storage area, and it still has room for tools and stuff.

I was surprised when they pulled out the tool roll in a BikeRadar video - it's looong. They really stuff it up in there.

What's the inside of the storage compartment made from? You're not going to crack structural carbon by having loose stuff knocking sound in there, right?

(I cracked a carbon frame with a water bottle, with the little plastic lanyard thing repeatedly knocking the seat tube. Tiny little crack, and in hindsight stupid rider.)

So true. I have not bought a complete bike since 2004. If you are adept at getting great prices on build kits from abroad it is not hard to build an equivalent bike for less money. It really, really helps if you can build your own wheels!!

Who provides that (hydro/electronic shifting at $2900) in a current model year bike?

I do think the shape of the frame is elegant.
What is the deal with matte finishes?? Are they really THAT popular? Everyone I know can't stand them.

Nobody! That's my beef, hydro has really increased the cost. I at least expect mechanical Ultegra at that price point.

I hope they offer the SL model as a frameset. If not I might buy an SL4 or SL5. and do a parts swap.

I love my old 2015 Domane 6.9, but wish I could use some fat gravel tires.

The SL5 is $2899. Mechanical 105(with hydraulic brakes).

If you have a tight relationship with your Trek LBS, you might be able to get a little better price.

I have a loose relationship with many shops. I'll get a much better price in 12 months.

The've sold the SL framesets the last couple years... then again, they're not selling the Madone SL frameset at this time, and that might be a better indicator (I might get hot and bothered if/when they offer it).

Conversely, a redshift suspension stem and seat post will set you back less than $300 and are transferable to any bike you own (the seat post has available shims). Both the stem and seat post are tunable by weight (or according to personal preference). A budget friendly alternative with excellent functionality.

Or one can invest in a cheap Ti Bike for way less.

Granted, my Moots wasn't cheap and I got it at cost. Retail it would have been way over 9k.

But seriously, anybody with an ounce of common sense recognizes that $300 of portable components is a lot better value than investing $13K on a bike with a flexy stem and seat tube.

Okay, let me get my whinge on again.


Whilst I am sure that Trek has made sure that having that storage area doesn't compromise the structural integrity of the downtube, I can't help but wonder if in reinforcing the downtube to take into account the storage area, we end up with a less than optimal contribution to ride quality(even if that negative contribution is quite small).


In short, I don't like the idea of large cutouts in bike tubes. Small cutouts for cables is as far as I want it taken.

I mean it’s up to each of us to either trust their engineering abilities or don’t. If they design something that’s going to fail at a high degree they are looking at some potentially large lawsuits in the future. There’s not enough “wow factor” in that little compartment for me to think they’d risk both their reputation and liability for that design flair. The presence or absence of that compartment is not going to make or break that bike’s sales.

I agree.
