We’ve gotten a number of Trek roadies from Domane, to Emonda to Madone come into Y’s Road Chigasaki, and it’s a good time to look for a new bicycle, as summer is nearly over, and we head into the cool breeze of autumn.



The Domane is the all around road bicycle in Trek’s trio of high end rides.  Emonda is the lightest bicycle, for climbers and such and Madone is aero designed machine.  This Domane SL5 is equipped with an all carbon frame and Shimano 105 components, in a sleek new color combination sure to please the eye.  It has 105 disc brakes, and although thought of as an endurance type class, its shallow rims, plain profile and 25mm tires, make for a fast road bike with great maneuverability. 






The 2020 Trek Domane SL5 sells for 318000 yen +TAX.  It has Trek’s iso speed technology, as well as lengthened wheel base and a low bottom bracket for stability, and works continuously to keep vibrations and sharp bumps from reaching the rider.  It is a size 54, here at Y’s Road Chigasaki!!  One reminder: Consumption Tax goes up as of October 1st from 8% to 10%  🙁   You will save yourself 2%, if you buy before then!!
