    I owed a Domane and loved the comfort. My race bike was a Cervelo S5. Awesome bike but I just could not get used to the fit. Read about the Emonda and the mix of Madone and Domane geometry. Rode it and fell in love. This bike has it all. Light, comfortable, fast, and as a bonus the Shimano 11spd 105 group set is pure magic. Zero complaints. Love it!!!

      This bike was more than expected. I went from a rock solid Madone to the Emonda and couldn't ask for more. Super fast and took all the road nonsense and absorbed all of it for me. Love it!
