Road Bike Shootout: Trek’s Domane+ LT 7 Vs. BMC’s AlpenChallenge

 

the left Di2 shifter switched the assist modes while the right switched gears. The two extra Di2 buttons that are at the top of the hood cycled through the data fields on each display. The left one cycled through the Shimano bar-mounted display, while the right through the Garmin display. 

Charging the battery was simple, and the small bar-mounted display is minimal but informative, with no guessing which mode you are in or the amount of battery remaining. Standard wheel spacing means that upgrading wheels is easy, and we probably would get something a bit wider, since the frame could double as a pretty good gravel option.
