    This Time The Good News Is Official

    LBS just sent me a text letting me know that my Domane frame shipped yesterday. Three days travel time from Trek to the shop. Apparently, there was an e-mail mix-up last week so the frame was late in getting out. But things are now looking up. I should be fitted and rolling by Monday.

    Cool beans. Remember we want pictures when you're back up and running.

    Did you buy a frame to be built up or did you have a Domane that had a problem. I have about 500 miles on my 2013 Domane 4.5. I like it a lot. It really does smooth out the road. But then I was riding a 1989 Cannondale. Bicycling magazine once said that the Cannondale 3.0 was the stiffest and harshest riding bike that they ever tested.

    Goo luck with the Domane!

    LongT, I had a 2011 Madone 5.2 that I loved. Two weeks ago I had a parts failure that, among other things, ended up snapping off a pretty good sized chunk of the CF right at the rear drive side dropout so the bike wasn't repairable. Trek warrantied the frame and a new back wheel and offered me a choice between a new 5 Series Madone and a 5 series Domane. The owner of my LBS actually just got his own Project 1 Domane and let me take it for a spin and I was really impressed with the ride quality even over that of the Madone so that was what I went with. For the road quality down here (HORRIBLE), it was just enough of a softer ride that, to me, it made a difference. Of course, once I put some actual mileage on it, I may feel differently but I've ridden one at least as much as I rode a Madone before buying it. I can still see another Madone in my future, though.

    Thanks for the response.

    Like I said I have 500 miles or so on mine and I really like it. I'm sure you will too.
