When the company with the best engineering, access to technology and resources, and a history of cost-effective performance goes into warp drive, the results will blow the competition away. The 2013 TREK Domane does exactly that.
Those roads that have beaten you into the ground, that looked good on the map but turned into goat paths… you’ll look forward to them on your Domane!
The Specialized Roubaix has had its run in this category, the same way they used to lead in mountain bikes (until TREK introduced Active Brake Pivot, Full Floater suspension and DRCV shocks that put TREK out front). Not anymore! Bye-bye, Specialized. Hello Domane. Lighter. Twice the vertical compliance. Laterally stronger for greater responsiveness. All the right buzz words, but buzz is what you don’t get on this bike.
New Domanes are arriving weekly! Your local dealer might not get them for some time; we ordered early & heavy. Introductory pricing will be $4399.99 for an Ultegra-equipped bike, with Project One options available featuring DuraAce Di2, SRAM and Campagnolo at various price points. You can also design a bike with a custom paint job and components to match your needs & dreams with Project One.
Chain Reaction Bicycles will have a great price (always below what TREK shows on their website), extraordinary service and Project One customization expertise that comes from helping so many people with their custom road bikes since this program first started. Come in and see what your new bike is going to ride and look like!

Side view of Damone seat tube/top tube interface, where much of the magic happens!
View of the IsoSpeed junction from behind. Clean & simple!
Rear mount for attaching a fender. Really!
Rear dropout mounting screw for fender mounting attachment. Very clean.
Just like on the rear, there’s a clean & simple way to attach fenders to the front.
Tire clearance? This is a “wide” 28c we tried. No problem!

Another view for the skeptics that don’t think a high-performance carbon frame can handle a wide tire
The scale of truth! No “claimed” weights at Chain Reaction.
16.53 pounds, including reflectors, for this 54cm stock Domane 6.2
Clean cable lines at the front add to the beauty and simplify maintenance
Integrated chain catcher prevents shifting off inside chainring. How cool is that!

1 56cm “Performance” fit frame in Redwood City
The Performance fit frame is 3cm higher at the front end than the Pro fit, allowing greater flexibility in handlebar positioning. If you’ve got nice components on a tired frame, this would be a killer update! Or if you want to put together a project bike from the ground-up, you’ll save a lot of $$$ starting with this frame.
