RIDE 73 – Trek Domane SLR 9 workshop gallery

Building the Trek Domane SLR 9 was a pleasure thanks to a surprisingly standard frame configuration and, of course, the wonderful SRAM Red eTap which has no wires for the mechanic to contend with. eTap makes building any bike a cinch and is a useful asset for those concerned with the mechanics and servicing of their bike.

There’s plenty of innovation in the Domane SLR. An adjustable rear IsoSpeed decoupler, a head tube IsoSpeed for extra comfort, direct mount brakes and, of course, SRAM Red eTap.

The photos below show are from building the Trek Domane SLR 9 in RIDE’s workshop.

If this bike had electronic wires like those on Shimano Di2, the battery rests in this gaping hole in the down tube.
