Trek Domane SLR 9 Gen 4 2023

I searched and this was the only bike within 75 miles of me - the shop just got it and I picked it up after work. I got intrigued by this bike after reading some reviews and seeing the changes in the Gen 4 model - a bit more aero, simpler ISO coupler and good reduction in weight. This bike (56cm) weighs a shade over 17 lbs. I think I can drop more weight with lighter wheels (Farsports Feder) and tires (Pirelli P Zero). I need to reduce the spacers to dial in the fit and may switch the bars to a Ritchey Streem Aero.

I took it out on a quick ride today and was surprised at the seemingly lively ride - felt lighter than my OPEN U.P. (which is only 1 lb more) -- and how well it held speed.

The paint scheme is a bit meh but the decals are holographic-like, which stands out some. When I switch bars, I will put a nice Celeste-colored tape which will look sharp against the all-black.

I think your wheels are 1370 grams. A lot of money will be spent to lighten your bike via wheels I'd guesstimate.

Enjoy rolling it, looks like a weapon to me

It's your money but spending it on wheels when you have RSL 37's is silly.

Nice bike.

Nice bike.
Thanks - I already have the Feder wheels (1260 grams), so it was already spent. All my bikes are switching to SRAM so it can be used across the stable.

The answer is likely yes. If we were talking about the difference esteem the RSL and Pro then no - the difference is all in the hubs (350 vs 240). The Farsport rims are almost certainly lighter than whatever Trek spec’d.

To me, non rotational weight at my awesome power [NOT!...

...to have a bike just be lighter I'd not bother. But I'd be interested in your A/B experience going forward.

I only have one set of Farsport rims and the front had to be RMAd immediately due to a manufacturing defect. I think mine are the Feder 25 rims and they ride very harshly for a low profile rim. The Bontrager wheels are… boring: not too harsh, not especially fancy. Just the kinda middle-of-the-road product you’d expect from Trek.

On the other hand, I also have a set of XXX2 TLR for rim brake and they’re outstanding. I wish trek still made them…

i9.35s are really nice if you can get them cheap. I’ll have to try the MCFK+DT240 25s on my wife’s bike at some point…

Yeah, this describes my A5-D3 clinchers exactly..

I just picked up an older domane and am amazed at how well all-around it rides. Yours probably does everything even better. Looks great!

These are Farsport FSD30CM-28T-SUD rims, weigh about 340g. I can't find info on the weight of the Bontrager rims but can't be lower.
