I purchased the SL 6 Pro with the Matron 40 wheels. Now have 1000 miles after 3 months, including 2 centuries and 3 metrics. Overall frame, group set and ride are excellent. However, I have 2 continuing problems: Wheels squeak with medium+ braking. Have taken to Trek Store and they made minor adjustments (adjust toe) to the pads but no real improvement. Tires and tubes that come standard seem to be weak as I am on my 3rd tube in the back and 2nd in the front. Have checked tires and wheels multiple times for embedded objects and only found 1 on the first puncture. Location is always on outside of tube. Riding on same roads with previous bike on Vittoria tires had no problems over 2 years. If you choose to buy ask for better tires and tubes.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
I already have a great bike, the 2013 Trek Madone 4.5. I decided to buy the Domane SL6 because of the the addition of the front ISO Speed Decoupler and being able to ride longer distances in comfort. The roads are now amazingly smooth!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
