    New Trek Boone

    I posted this in the 41 a couple weeks ago, but wanted to offer it up for the CX forum.

    About 3 weeks ago I purchased a new Trek Boone 7. I had Force22 installed and Bontrager Aura 5 wheels put on & a Power2max as well. I got this bike to replace a Domane that I crashed and broke the frame. My intent is to use the Boone as my primary ride, but also use it for gravel grinders and possibly race a few CX's with it.

    So far I've put a little over 500 miles on it and had my longest ride on it yesterday - a little over 80 miles. I couldn't test ride one before I purchased b/c no one has them in stock. My biggest fear was that it wouldn't be as comfortable on the long rides as my Domane was. I can tell you that I was just as comfortable on the Boone. It's also comfortable (to me) while climbing. So far I'm very pleased and feel that this may very well be a pretty good all around bike.

    Congrats, I saw your pictures in another thread, and it looks like an awesome bike! I recently did the same thing after a long hiatus from cycling (on a lower budget), and I have been very happy. I needed one bike that could serve road, gravel, single track, and hopefully a little CX duty until I am financially able to build up a stable, and it has worked out better than I thought. Enjoy the bike, she's a beauty!

    Congrats. As a very happy Domane 5.2 owner I was really excited (and not really surprised) when the Boone came out. I can't justify the cost of one but am hoping that Trek comes out with an less expensive aluminum version of the Boone as they ended up doing with the Domane.
    May your tires or beer never be flat.
