With the 2020 Trek Domane SLR gaining a lot tire clearance, I noticed that it match my wants for a gravel race bike completely. I do not bikepack however I am wanting ahead to operating fenders on it for moist winter highway rides. Built-in fender mounts make this a breeze.
Commonplace Domane Endurance geometry was too tall for me. The decrease Professional Endurance geometry solely out there by their Mission One customized website. Splashed some flashy paint on it whereas I used to be in there

Weighs about 18.5 lbs. I knew the construct could be a bit heavy however consolation and sturdiness is much extra vital at mile 150 in Soiled Kanza than a couple of grams right here or there.
Tire clearance in rear is 54mm. The Michelins measure 37.2mm on my wheels. Simply room for a 40c pushed out to 42mm on a large rim. Operating fenders would require smaller tires in fact. Winter highway plan is 28c GP500 tubeless
FD adjustment slot wouldn’t go low sufficient for 46T chainring. Needed to file it about 2mm decrease to get appropriate FD top.
Cables are simple to run regardless of being all inside. Did not even want my Park IR 1.2 cable routing equipment that each different IR bike I’ve constructed required.
On all my Di2 bikes I set up the wi-fi transmitter between the bars and TT. This enables simpler service but additionally lets me unplug shifters from battery. For any Di2 house owners who’ve inadvertently drained their battery by storing the bike in opposition to a Di2 set off..
T47 threaded BB is superior!
Storage roll in DT is means too small for gravel tube. Barely sufficient room for highway tube. I plan to discover a small pump that may slot in there. Ordered the Bontrager BITS multitool that clicks into the quilt on the within.
