Before I bought my first ebike I had narrowed it down to the Specialized Creo but at the last minute I decided since I was going to spend this kind of money I should go ahead and at least try the Trek Domane+ HP7. I tried the Domane first and really liked it. A few days later I tried the Creo. I rode both bike on the same 60 mile course with 1800 ft. elevation climbing. Even though I was leaning towards the Creo because it was lighter I really liked the Domane better. The Domane fit me better and felt more like a road bike.The Creo didn't have as much power on the climbs and required riding at a higher cadence than I could maintain for any extended time. Maybe would have been fine for a younger and more fit rider but at 66 I couldn't maintain the higher cadence of 90 to 120 rpm. I bought the Domane+ HP7 and have ridden it on 4 fast 60 mile group rides with 1800 to 2500 ft. climbing with my regular riding buddies who are 5 to 15 yr. younger. Before the Domane I could barely hang with them this year but with the DomaneI can ride with them as hard and fast as they want to go. I can be at the front on the climbs now (first if I wanted to but just hang back in the group). I now can do these hard fast rides & not be totally exhausted. A lot more fun. I am very happy with the Domane.
