While I would have liked a Trek Deamon, I was allowed to buy a Trek Émonda.
This post is about how I got away with that…
In 2020, I traded my Sensa for a Trek.
I got the Domane SL 5, which is just above entry level for Trek 😂
(It wasn’t even € 3,000 at the time, they are more expensive now…)
When I got my SpeedMax CF8 a year later, which came with Sram eTap AXS electronic shifting – and “wireless” at that – I was sure I’d never go back to mechanical shifting.
Okay, yes, I got my Sonora MTB this year and it has mechanical shifting, but that was just an extra “fun bike”, costing less than the fork for my SpeedMax…
