Current Tour de France yellow jersey Fabian Cancellara (Trek) is no stranger to cobbles and neither is his go-to bike. He has a few custom Trek Domanes for this year's Tour de France. Here is the machine Trek created as his primary bike for every road stage of the Tour save stage 4 — where the former Paris-Roubaix winner will mount a slightly different version with thicker tubulars for the cobbles of that stage.
The custom paint jobs of the Swiss rider's bikes have become almost as famous as Cancellara's ruggedly handsome visage, sheer leg power and attacking style. For 2015, the Trek's Project One team once again came up with a beautiful design based around the rider's nickname Spartacus.
The striking glossy white frame is covered with intricate silver detailing that depicts Cancellara's trademark Greek Hoplite helmet design, the Spartacus name on the top tube and a swathe of free-flowing floral shapes that blossom over most of the frame.
Cancellara has altered his traditional classics spec a little, sticking with mechanical Dura-Ace as usual but including the SRM usually left at home for the rider's one-day races – the Swiss star prefers to race these by feel.
