Currently have a Madone 9. Looking for a disc braked bike to go alongside it.

Currently thinking :-

1) Aeroad DIsc
2) Propel Disc
3) Domane Disc
4) Bmc Road Machine.


I know 1 and 2 are similar to the Madone.

I get put off number 3 due to the fact the amount they charge, the front brake hose is exposed, using cable ties.

5) Cento10 Air disc
6) Foil disc
7) F10 disk
8 ) SuperSix Evo HiMod disc
9) Tarmac disc
...



But how do you define "a disc braked bike to go alongside it"?

When would you want something besides the Madone?
1. A descent that makes you concerned with how much heat you're putting into the carbon rims.
2. A rough pavement or dirt road where you'de prefer 30+mm tires.
3. A climb where you wish for a lighter bike. (This would dictate building a non-aero ultralight rim brake bike, not a disc bike.)
4. I can't think of anything else. The Madone seems like a great all around bike.

So to satisfy 1 & 2 I'd say to get something in the Specialized Diverge genre. If #2 never happens to you and your only reason for another bike is better braking than I guess any disc race bike would suit. I'd choose the Scott Foil Disc.

Thanks

Yes descending and damp roads are one scenario. Something thats easy to pack up and travel overseas with would also be good.

Don't mind if the second bike is to Similar to the Madone, one reason I like the Giant is you can stick on Aerobars for the odd time trial I do.

I would go for BMC.
Why, it handles wider tires than the rest of those listed.
Always a good idea when it is slippery and/ or when it's frost or even ice.

I was in the same situation as you, also having a madone 9. Ended up with a roadmachine 01 three for winter and rainy days. Never regret the choice. It ride really well and love that it could handle 28mm tires.

I’ve been thinking about getting a Domane SLR Disc. The downside, as you say, is that it’s expensive, especially if you want to try to keep the weight down, which can only go so far on this platform because the iso speed decoupler system clashes with weight-weenie ideals. But otherwise it seems to me that this bike is a great choice for an all rounder. It nails it for someone whose objective is a comfortable roadie that will encourage long days on the saddle.

For a N+1 winter bike I would consider saving a bit of cash with a Caad 12 disc myself.

I live in Sydney, don;t really have winter here :-)

Other option I considered is N+2, Speed Concept for Time Trials and then a Gravel bike like a Diverge on top.

Not sure I can get that past the wife though.

Wilier Cento10 NDR disc is another option.
Good looking and less mainstream than Spez/ Trek/ Giant.

Why not a disc metal bike? You could go custom livery as well. Good for any routes and distinct enough from your race machines.

Other than the super nasty graphics, the new Propel looks impressive, on paper, at least.

If you want a bike to take oversees, if the place is unknown, wide tires will be better. If you get a Domane, the frame will be less long, easier to pack, and take the wider tires. You can pack slick 30c and threaded 35c tires.

and the very ugly integrated (angular) stem! :? :?

A very good looking integrated stem is the one on the BMC SLR01 disc

As I was looking for a disc brake bike someone here in the forum told me that I should be careful about some disc brake bikes as they may be difficult to get in the bike luggage due to the hydraulic hoses if fully integrated etc especially if you have to take off the handlebar.....Something to think about...
