Im in the same dilemma too ..
Would appreciate if anyone could point me in the right direction
I have narrowed down my choices to whats available for me buy, but I have kind of set my sights on
1) BMC RM01 with di2 hydro - Dura Ace 2018 di2
2) Trek Project 1 Domane SLR di2 hydro as well. - Ultegra6870 di2
3) Cannondale SSHM Evo HM Di2
All 3 bikes are kind of available to me but not in my sizes as they need to order in, which unfortunately means i will have to commit to buy for them to order it in without actually testing the bike itself. There are lower end models of the TREK and BMC available for me to try.
Both BMC and Trek are almost in the same price range, but obviously the trade off is the BMC having some DT Swiss original rims (but shop is happy to buy back and put some enve 4.5s on for a slightly increased sum) but full DA Di2 Hydro 2018 , vs Trek having a Bontrager d3/d5 wheels but Ultegra di2 Hydro only.
Cannondale itself only comes in mech hydro version and will have to buy a new Hydro components / wheels.
The thing putting me off is the online reviews for the BMC RM01 regarding the seat post slippage which is apparently a known issue. Any of you have anymore insight into this?
BMC is aesthetically more integrated and doesn't have gimmicks but its appears that it possess ride quality similar to that of the team machine.
Love the trek but for the price point of P1 with the drivetrain component choices and front end cable disaster ( aesthetics ) , I'm putting the likes mainly on the p1 paint job. Had the old DOMANE with just rear iso and it was such a nice frame to ride.
My question really, is I would like to ride a disc frame mainly for wet weather without worrying about braking issues without sacrificing ride quality - too plush.
Id really appreciate any feedback and insight to assist with my next purchase.
I'd put money on Trek purely for the frameset. I have the Domane 4.5 Disc and the great frameset workmanship (paint and the matte coating, small parts, attention to details) is much appreciated. The frameset is strong and sturdy. My last Cannondale was CAAD12 Disc. Didn't like the paint job (cheap quality)... control was neutral (comparing to Domane Disc and TCR Adv SL Disc).
