    There's a thread on here somewhere where someone replaced their suspension fork on a DS with a carbon fiber fork from the CrossRip LTD. Check and see if your dealer can give you a price on that....

    If you are seriously looking to buy a 7.9, my guess would be that you want to buy the lightest flat bar option. The disc brakes heavier weight doesn't jive with that mindset

    I see. It's not a flat bar road bike, it's a road bike with flat bars. :)


    I do see your point though. Minor quibble........but certainly valid.

    Either way, the 7.9 FX looks sweet to me

    I hate the scratches that seem to show up overnight on matte finishes. Plus, the white bike reminds me of the cherry and white colors of my beloved Temple University, so I may be biased there...Go...

    I have to agree that riding the bike is key to deciding. Case in point, I had the complete opposite experience than the above mentioned. I tried the Roubaix, Tarmac, Emonda, and Domane. I felt the...

    in my area the 7.5 is only $20 more, so I would call that an even price. The components might seem a bit better on paper with the C'Dale, but I wonder if it's a difference you'd ever feel. I would...

    New to biking? I'd recommend staying away from the craigslist route. A new bike has much less work issues and a warranty, two good things for a newbie to have. Go to your local bike shop and find a...

    Please answer this before tomorrow. On second thought, maybe don't. I am having a hard enough time deciding if the black or blue alr5 looks better to me. I don't want to add in others to consider.

    How would one compare a 920 disc to the 8.6 DS? I am wondering what would be the better ride if you wanted a bike that would spend 65% on the road and 35% on hard packed fire roads or power line...

    To add to this, the top of the line FX models, from the 7.5 on up are really intended to be "flat-bar road bikes" where light weight is a premium concern. It would make sense that an older guy who...

    The Toughroad seems pretty close to the higher end Trek DS models to me, minus the lockout fork option?

    But they added the two new Allants, which seem to be pretty much FX models anyway?? It seems more confusing to me but you can still enjoy a Trek if discs are a must.

    What about the redo of the DS series? They dumped the iso-zone for 2015. I think that was an improvement?

    So are you saying that they decided what Crossrip frame to order based on fitting you on a Domane? I'd be sure to have a return or exchange option before buying the Crossrip.
