domane disc?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

domane disc?

a buddy picked up Domane/Di2 and is absolutely hooked, says there is nothing like it for rec rides.

I would get one too, but I absolutelypositively have to have disc brakes on my next bike (for several reasons).

what are the chances that Trek will release a Domane w/ disc brakes?

if zero, then I'll get a Ti bike,

2013? Zero.

IMO Trek is usually a bit behind the curve. AFAIK they were the last big bike maker to put out an endurance bike and to switch to sloping top tubes. I don't think they'll offer any road disc options for at least 2 years.

I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing, considering that Domane reviews are generally positive, and road disc may need another year or two to mature.

Why does it have to be Domane or ti?

I've got my eye on the C59...
