Beating a dead horse - are matte finishes here to stay?

Maybe it’s because as a kid I remember a new bike being associated with “shiny,” but it feels like going on a decade and I still haven’t fallen in love with the matte finish trend. At least, I...

I'm wondering if this is just a Trek thing, or something happening in the industry in general? When the new Domane came out, the only knock I read about it was how much heavier it had gotten. When I...
