    Trek Domane +HP 2021

    interestingly the newest trek has dropped the isospeed for a strange diamond shaped hole under the seat. Probably to save weight, as I doubt the turbulent air that far back in the bike would have any aero advantage. I'll keep my Domane+ for a while, especially as all of the Bosch Domane bikes...

    Trek Domane +HP 2021

    Are you a believer in isospeed? My Domane+ is definitely more comfortable (supple?) frame than my cannonade, but is that due to the more relaxed geometry, softer carbon fiber construction, or just the fact that at 225 lbs I am approaching the weight limit of the bike which is flexing under my...

    Trek Domane +HP 2021

    Domane+ for the win! Recently I rode in the 40 mile "Tour De Summerlin" which is a scenic ride (technically not a race) around the upper class neighborhood Summerlin, on the outskirts of Las Vegas. I had plotted out the ride and imported it into my Nyon, so I could see the altitude map and...

    Nyon MY21 - Initial Thoughts

    New maps, and several new screens and tiles. I selected a eMTB type screen that shows all sorts of slope data and a cute little altitude graph. There are screens that calculate how much money you save by riding to work. Other bugs fixes and stuff.

    Nyon MY21 - Initial Thoughts

    My first generation Domane+ came with the basic Purion(?) computer, and when I would accidentally run over the carved "rumble strip" on the side of some roads, it would go blank or reset itself. I find the Nyon to be much more shock resistant. Still trying to think of a way to put the finger pad...

    Nyon MY21 - Initial Thoughts

    The irony is that Europe has all the bikes, but they are restricted to 20 mph. This makes the Trek Bosch bikes unusual on both accounts. Many other bike companies just import the european bikes with their smaller and less powerful motors. I have ridden with e-bike riders that crap out at 20 mph...

    Nyon MY21 - Initial Thoughts

    I bought my Nyon about 18 months ago and in general it is excellent. Superbly configurable to show anything I want on multiple screens. The nav system has some glitches, but I tend to ride the same rides, so I dont really use it. The Nyon works with the ebike connect phone app and the bosch...

    Trek Domane +HP 2021

    I know e-bikes are great gravel and MTB bikes, but please give us a real road bike with a 50T chainring, and 28mm tires, and about 5lbs less! 🙏

    Trek Domane +HP 2021

    I bought my Domane+ from the Henderson trek store (McGhies back then) about 3 years ago. I guess I'll see you on the Tour De Summerlin next month. You won't be hard to miss, you'll be at the front! ;);)

    Trek Domane +HP 2021

    Did you have any trouble finding the bike to purchase? With covid, wars and price gouging on almost anything you want to buy, It's hard to find them. Which city do you live in? My bike is in for its 2500 mile tune right now.

    Trek Domane +HP 2021

    I have a first generation Domane+. In my real world testing, A 500 Wh battery will give me (dragging my fat 220 lb ass over mild to moderate hills) 65 miles of CONTINUOUS assist in ecco, and 45 miles of CONTINUOUS assist in tour. In practice, on a full battery, I get FOUR rides, each about 30...

    Nyon MY21 - Initial Thoughts

    Well then, I see a Domane HP7 in my future...:p:p

    Nyon MY21 - Initial Thoughts

    Well that would actually be helpful on a long ride if your phone is not immediately accessible because its in your back pocket or backpack somewhere. A subtle, but thoughtful addition.

    Nyon MY21 - Initial Thoughts

    I have not seen a screen that tells you what gear you are in. Is that a custom tile? Is that available for road bikes or just mountain bikes?

    Nyon MY21 - Initial Thoughts

    Any idea why, after a 30 mile ride the Nyon should be at 64% when it draws its power from the main battery?
