Month 1: Getting to know each other
One of the very best bikes I rode over the last two years was
the original Domane RSL, so when the newest version came out I was
keen to try it. From memory the Domane does not blow you away on an
initial ride, rather it takes a while to get under your skin but
the more you ride it the more you appreciate its qualities.
RSL stands for Race Shop Limited and is a model developed for
Trek's World Tour team. UCI rules mean that the bikes Pros ride
have to be available to us mortals - as such it's low, stiff,
aggressive and fast !
This is a limited run bike - and a very special one at that.
