How are you paying extra if it's the same gear for the same price, just slightly different frame shape?
Anyway, if in doubt, don't buy the race frame...
More tech involved in the build of the domane, it's not as straight forward asit would be to mould the Madone. Ride both, the fit on the Madone 4 series isn't exactly racey..
Still not making sense. The RRP of the Domane 4.3 and the Madone 4.3 are the same - $2499. The running gear is the same. There's no paying more for the frame that I can see...
