Nice. I've got a Domane 2.0 as well and always wondered just how heavy the stock wheels were. I guess it's true that they're boat anchors if you can lose 1.5 lbs right off the bat.

For you, it might not make sense. I've got it on my domane since I don't take care of my bikes at all. Having the crash protection is pretty nice if you race or do otherwise stupid stuff. I also...

I'm bummed that you have to spend the big bucks to get the H1 fit (most aggressive.) I've got a Domane, which is awesome for longer rides, but I find myself wishing that I had a head tube that was 5...

Also, don't get discouraged if you get dropped (if, it is in fact a drop ride.) Keep on riding until you no longer get dropped; you'll become a much stronger, faster rider.

I love my compact when riding solo. I've noticed that I only wish I had a standard double when I'm doing club rides in a pace line. It's much, much easier to get to 25+ when you're sitting on a...

Is white bar tape faux pas? It's what came with my Domane, and I've cleaned it no less than 10 times in the last month since I've had it. Aaaand it's still somewhat grimy.

This footage is awesome and is so great and exciting for the sport. I really liked the final kilometers of stage 8; I had no idea tight quarters were and that bumping and pushing happened.
