Bye Trentino, Hello Domane

Just in time for my Giro d’Italia 2020 and/or my birthday, the Minister of Finance has sanctioned the purchase of a new bike for expeditions like that.

My Sensa Trentino CDX was purchased at the time as an excuse for not having a bike suited for ‘mountaineering’, or the occasional off road trip.

While it has served me well during my ‘Tour de France’ of 2017 and last year’s ‘Tour de Suisse’, I only occasionally took it to roads that would be inaccessible on a ‘normal’ road bike.

And to be honest, it’s probably a cross/gravel bike well suited for its purpose, but for 95% of my rides, it’s just not the right fit.
