Not my personal bike, just riding it for a couple days and I thought you guys would like to check it out. Rode it home tonight and all I can say is WOW! Bike is just as stiff and responsive as my Madone but it is more comfortable and forgiving.

2012 Trek Domane Team Issue
Shimano Ultegra Di2 Compact
Bontrager Aeoulus 5 clincher
Bontrager R3 tires
Bontrager XXX stem 90mm
Bontrager IsoZone RXL Handlebar
Bontrager Affinity Saddle
16.2 lbs with no pedals or cages.

Looks like the headtube is a lot taller on the consumer version. Still a great looking bike, and Trek really nailed the Di2 wiring.

What size is it? The headtube is really throwing me off...

It would look much better if you remove all the spacers and put on another stem with less incline. The rest of the bike is really nice.

It's not my bike so not my choice. Plus proper fit > aesthetics.

Thanks for the pics! :thumbup:

First Trek I ever wanted, comfort = ride faster for longer = WIN! Will wait for the 5 series though.

The stem has to be slammed for it to fit?

Trek comes in different versions, where the headtube height is difference. They call it H1 and H2. Thanks for the post, what Madone are you comparing it to? Are the high handle bar your fit or the owner?

Not in the Domane. They do not have H1 or H2. It is actually about halfway between h2 and h3. I am comparing it to a 2011 5.1 h2 Madone. The handlebars are set up for the owner.

I love this bike. Rode one a week ago. The downtube is massive, even bigger than the Madones. Not too heavy either. 1180g for the frame.
