For those of you that haven’t been in the shop while I am there and I haven’t talked your ear off about the topic at hand, I am getting a new bike!
I am not going to lie to you, I have a perfectly good 2008 Trek Madone 5.1 WSD that doesn’t get as much use as it should. I have been trying to get the fit right on it for the last couple months and it just hasn’t felt right. Then I took one of our 2013 Trek Domane 6.2 WSDs out on a test ride and it was the first bike that I didn’t want to get off of. It was amazingly smooth and comfortable. The isospeed decoupler that separates the seat tube from the top tube and the seat stays creates a super smooth ride that softens out the bumps in the road without being squishy.
So I decided that I wanted one. But the main question was: What color should it be? I have been a fan of pink since I got my Madone5.1 WSD, but I love blue as well. So I told Kevin (my brother) to play around with Project One and I’ll check out what he came up with. He came up with this and I LOVED it!
I ordered it mid August and I can’t wait for it to get here! I check my dealer site every day to see if it is shipping yet. I feel like Calvin when he is waiting for his beanie from the Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs cereal! I want my new bike!!!!!!
Oh, and my Madone will be getting good use now too. My cousin will be training for a Trek Travel trip and I am letting her borrow my bike, so we will be riding together!
