Pro bike: Fabian Cancellara’s Trek Domane 6-Series

Spartacus to stick with mechanical shifting in 2014

While the majority of Trek Factory Racing’s bikes are under embargo until the start of next season Cyclingnews was given an exclusive sneak preview of Fabian Cancellara’s Trek Domane 6-Series for next season.


Essentially it’s exactly the same bike as the one he rode to victory in the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix this year, with just a few minor alterations.

The set-up with Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 remains, as well as the Bontrager Aeolus 5 D3 tubular wheelset. The Swiss rider has switched pedal choice though, with Speedplay being replaced by Shimano. There are a few slight motif changes too, with the team’s Trek Factory Racing name adorning the top tube.

“He’s the only rider on the team who remains on Dura-Ace mechanical,” says team liaison Jordan Roessing. “It’s just something that he has historically preferred. All the others riders are on Di2. Fabian simply prefers the manner in which the Dura-Ace shifts.”
