What the Pros Ride
Vs. What You Should
What the Pros ride is so removed from what I’m doing, it’s just irrelevant.
Furthering that point, yesterday Trek launched their disc version of the Domane RSL. That’s that’s their highest end race bike, costs about $12K and they buried the lede about it in Project One.
In the press release, Trek seems most intent on introducing you to Project One and the custom paint they can do here in…www.bikehugger.com
That’s because the teams won’t be on Trek’s newest road disc bike, not on a Specialized Roubaix with discs either, or Giant TCR.
While there’s much to debate about a Pro team’s race day decisions on cobbles, know that you can buy and ride a more advanced bike than what they’ll attack the Arenberg Forest sector with.
And, the upside is that the marketers have to sell more than the aspirational fitness and suffering of racing, but the bikes themselves.
Custom paint too.
So what should your ride, ignoring the Pros and the Spring Classics?
I suggest a bike like this.
