2017 is already shaping up to be a great year for Trek. Here we take a look at the new Domane SL6 Disc.
About the Bike
The Domane is the name given to Trek's endurance range. Designed to tackle the cobbles of the Paris-Roubaix, the Domane features Trek's patented ISO-Speed de-coupler, located between the seat tube and the top tube.

In addition to the bike brands we also had Muc-Off keeping the bikes clean and well looked after, Bikmo serving freshly made coffee and also OTE keeping riders fuelled by dishing out the energy bars and gels.
