I thought the Domane would be a 'for life' bike, but the new model and the new Specialized Roubaix both have front and rear IsoSpeed and electric shift option. One of them will surely be my next victim. And to what some of the other posters said, there ain't nothing better than riding a CF bike hard.
There is no "forever" bike. There will always be something newer or shinier or in some other way better coming out next year. If that's what floats your boat and you can afford it, why not?
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.
