Trek has unveiled a John Degenkolb paint scheme that’s now available on Domane framesets through its Project One custom programme.
The Trek-Segafredo rider, who has won both Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix in the past, will ride his custom Domane SLR in this ‘Café Racer’ finish throughout the Spring Classics. Degenkolb finished seventh in this year’s Milan-San Remo and fifth in Gent-Wevelgem.
“The unique paint scheme itself is inspired by Degenkolb’s personal style and off-bike passion—namely classic café racer motorcycles,” says Trek.
“A base of hand-scuffed liquid metal is complemented with a dark smoke tint and clean racing stripes. Pops of glossy red smoke add contrast, and John’s lucky number and removable team logos complete the design.”
That lucky number is 7.

The paint scheme is available on the Domane SLR and SLR Disc platforms, in addition to the Domane SLR Race Shop Limited and the new Domane SLR Race Shop Limited Disc.
Race Shop Limited models feature Trek’s Pro Endurance geometry. This is designed to put you into a more aggressive riding position than you get through the Endurance geometry of the Domane SLR – lower and more stretched out.

The 56cm model, for example, has an effective top tube of 56.2cm and a head tube of just 12cm. The respective figures for an 56cm Domane SLR are 55.4cm and 17.5cm, so it’s a significantly different setup.
Each John Degenkolb Café Racer Domane is hand-painted at Trek’s global headquarters in Wisconsin, USA, and they don't come cheap. A Domane SLR 7 through Project One, for example, is £5,000, and you need to add £1,300 for the Degenkolb finish.
