As I approach the half-century mark later this year I am looking for a new bike. When I turned 40 I purchased a Trek 5500 DA bike (2 year old model closeout) and have been riding it since. No complaints about the 5500- have really loved it. At that time I promised myself if I was still into riding I would get a custom bike for my 50 and beyond days. I am looking at Ti and also the new Domane.
Anyone happen to ride both? The Domane definitely has good road shock absorption but I have been told a good Ti frame will do the same as long as I am not riding cobblestones (that's probably not going to happen). I am now leaning towards Ti because I have a CF bike that works and thinking the Ti might be more durable in the long run. I also can get rack and fender mounts for future "credit card" touring I am hoping to do.
