    What's old is new again- Trek Domane for cobbled classics

    Gallery: Trek Domane ? A New Bike For The Cobbled Classics - BikeRadar





    Basically a modern version of this from 1994 right?

    Full suspension at Paris-Roubaix ~ tears for gears





    Or this perhaps from 1995:

    Fuck Trek, Fabian deserves better.

    Also,

    "WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON HERE?!?!?!" - UCI Official, somewhere.

    I am expecting the 2mm lower bottom bracket to offer the biggest change in handling.

    Welcome to the party trek, only about 5 years after specialized's roubaix frame set.

    Edit... just read associated article, still not sure how the seat tube get's any more "fore-aft" movement.

    IsoSpeed is a pivot placed at the seat cluster. By partially decoupling the seat tube from the top tube, Trek claim the Domane offers far greater comfort than the Madone but without affecting other frame performance metrics. In fact, in many ways the Domane is said to actually be stiffer than the Madone
    If this is true, then we should see the pros on these soon... seems unlikely.
