Domestique’s Daily Detail (DDD) 001

3 concepts were at the core of Le Domestique’s inception:

1) Whatever it is, try to do it better than last time.

2) Bikes are cool, but they are not art.  They are machines with a purpose.  The pride that goes into servicing stems from respecting that purpose.

3) Excellence is defined by attention to detail.  Next time you get your bike back from Le Domestique, count the the number of bar tape overlaps on either side of the hoods.  You will find it’s the same.  Then measure the angle of the tape across the tops of the bars, that will also be the same.  Then measure the distance from the stem that the finishing tape is applied.  That’s the same too.  And that’s just the bar tape.

In the spirit of the third principle, Le Domestique would like to share our favourite details, which by the way, won’t be limited to just cycling.

DDD 001 – Assos Rain Gear

Specifically the hL SturmNuss and the afterSnowBootie_s7.  I’m not huge on kit that goes over bibs, but these are next level.  Plus the long bootie keeps the water from running down your bib/sock into your shoe.
