Hooray

Postby mattjevans » Fri May 16, 2014 10:41 am

My Trek Boone frame has just turned up at the bike shop 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

For weeks I've been stockpiling any parts needed that weren't pulled off my previous bike, so I hope this to be built (road wheels and tyres for summer) and ridden by the end of the month.

I'd love to hear how this rides, as soon as I got my Domane I knew they should put the isospeed decoupler (Bendy seat tube if you cut out the sales B.S) on a cross bike.

I was looking seriously at a Domane just as a road bike when the Boone was announced. £1000 cheaper for frame only and takes fatter tyres so can be used as a road bike and for cross. I got lucky with the timing there. Makes a change

The Domane is a stonking road bike over rough roads, the Boone should be awesome as a crosser

Finally picked it up yesterday. Picture to come.

Weighed in at 6.95kg including pedals, without bottle cage. Didn't expect that sort of weight!

I do like the look of those as a winter tyre, I was considering them as winter tyres for my Domane which is the cousin of your one

I was actually looking at a Domane before I decided on the Boone and the shop was advising me to put these on for all-around use

I wouldn't want to use them off road but they are great for rubbish B roads etc
