The Trek Domane designed specifically for Fabian Cancellara’s conquest of the cobbled classic, Paris-Roubaix, has been made available to the public through the Project One custom bike program. The Domane Classics Edition is purpose-built with Pro Endurance Geometry that provides a lower head tube and a longer wheel base for a more aggressive position, whilst frame highlights include additional tire clearance, a one-piece steel derailleur hanger/dropout for precise and durable shifting even on the roughest roads and foregoes fender mounts.
Trek’s Road Brand Manager Michael Mayer says, ‘This is a bike that riders have asked us about since we first unveiled the bike in 2012 and it’s really exciting to be able to offer it as a custom option with Project One. It’s a combination of the two ride qualities all cyclists covet; speed and a smooth ride. Add the millions of options Project One offers and you have an almost perfect bike. For the right rider, this bike is going to be the only bike they’ll ever want to ride again.’
First revealed in 2012 at the Ronde van Vlaanderen, the Trek Domane quickly gained a devoted following and picked up numerous accolades. Fabian Cancellara commented on the release to the public, saying: ‘I believe it’s very cool that Trek makes “my” bike available to consumers… It’s a very special bike for me. Together Trek and I have put a lot of time and energy in the development of the Domane and I’m happy that it’s out there now.’
The custom-painted limited edition frames are hand-built at Trek’s Waterloo, WI global headquarters and are available in 54cm – 62cm. The Trek Domane Classics Edition will only be available as a complete bike build. And the price? At $11,519.99 this is one to put on your Christmas list…
