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

Multitool for 2020 Domane?

Just started riding my new Domane and I'm loving it. But the new flat kit compartment doesn't actually come with any tools (come on Trek, just include them!). In any case, I'm wondering if anyone know what multitool will fit in the slot that is in the compartment. Bontrager has two. If someone know let me know otherwise I will find out and let you know.
I have to say I am really loving the new Domane. I got out on some gravel roads today and it is unbelievably smooth. Highly recommend it!

It's called the Bontrager BITS Integrated Multi-Tool, and your LBS will need to order for you.

skipm waa totally right. For some reason it's not listed on any of the Trek sites but when I hit my bike shop they had pre-ordered some in preparation for the new Domanes.

I opted for a Red Zeppelin CO2 valve instead of the recommended Bontrager one and it fits perfectly in the BITS bag. My Domane is now all set with it integrated flat kit. No more seat bag!

For that small space, consider just jamming the tube up the downtube instead of in the folding thing. I've had these tools and they were all very small -

One is a mini ratchet, one is a Tq wrench, and the last is a small toolset. I toss the carrying case, and they are all tiny.

I have a 2017 Domane SL6 and have been loving it. When I saw the 2020 ones come out, that storage compartment in the down tube made me wish I'd waited a few years! I don't like carrying things on my back, so when I went from a touring bike with rear rack trunk to the Domane with just a saddle bag, I lost the ability to easily carry a decent lock and more food for longer rides.

But I added a small top tube bag for that, just not as cool as stashing the tire repair stuff in the tube!
