Pro bike: John Degenkolb’s customized Trek Domane

Trek Domane John Degenkolb

John Degenkolb lines up at the start of the cobbled classics with his customized Project One Trek Domane bicycle.

The custom paint scheme begins with a base of hand-scuffed liquid metal complemented with a dark smoke tint and clean racing stripes. Pops of glossy red smoke add contrast, and Degenkolb’s lucky number and removable team logos complete the design.

Degenkolb, who won Milano-Sanremo and Paris-Roubaix in 2015, will take inspiration from his Project One Domane throughout the spring cobbled Classics.

“Obviously I loved the bike right from the start because it’s inspired by who I am, on and off the bike. Some people call me “a gentleman of speed”, a title I would like to honor as much as I can, and you will find that also on my stem. The bike has my lucky number 7 on the seat tube as well”, said Degenkolb.

“Of course, everybody knows that cobbles are my favorite terrain, but I am not sure if people are aware that my passion off the bike is motorcycles. So, riding a bike whose design takes cues directly from my personal café racer moto, that’s just awesome!”

Each John Degenkolb Café Racer Domane is hand-painted at Trek’s global headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin, and available now to customers worldwide exclusively through Project One.
