Hi guys, new to this forum, and interested in some advice....My wife and I had a da vinci road tandem with disc brakes that we loved. My wife was in much much better shape than me, and tragically she died 12 weeks ago. I have decided to ride the races she insisted we were going to do, but I need to put in a lot of mile to prepare for ms 150 next april (170 miles in two days). Just rode my 4.7 domane 25 and 42 miles in two days, so I've got a ways to go...95 miles this week. I want to get a project one trek domane with her colors if they offer a disc brake option in their 2015 offerings because: I'm 260 (down from 270) (219kg, down from 222), ride in rain occasionally, visit my adult kids in the mountains occasionally. Money is not as impt as getting this bike, so what I'm asking is: Because of my size, rain, and occasional mountain and hills, does a disc brake (like the Trek 6.9 domane disc) make sense, or should I not be concerned about the disc and just go ahead and get a project one 6 series with colors I like, or should I do as i've been planning and wait for the possible 2015 offerings? I know some of you may think the cost is silly, but I'm lucky in that way, and lucky that I found the most magical woman in the universe for ten years, so I hope you'll just answer my question. Thanks!
