Fabian Cancellara will use for Flanders and Roubaix the same bike with which he ran and won the 2012 Strade Bianche, Trek Domane 6 Series. Compared to last year, which ran with a "normal" Madone 6.9,there are many new features.The new Trek frame has a different geometry, with a greater distance, longer rear triangle and different fork. Higher the head tube and all different the carbon fiber with which it is made. Greater space between the wheels and frame,so as to be able to adopt tubular or clincher up to 28 millimeters in width. These change slea dto amore stable bike, with better traction, less manageable,heavier, more suited to tackle the difficult roads of Flanders and Roubaix. With the new frame is adopted Dura Ace mechanical group and not the Di2, however,used last year. The transition to themechanical group is not for reasons of reliability, bu tto compensate for the weight increase of the bicycle, so as to always remain close to the regulatory UCI limit. Remain unchanged, however, the Bontrager components, with stem and handlebars aluminum, carbon fiber seat post and saddle Bontrager. I have Speedplay pedals and Bontrager wheels, tubular most section and liquid anti puncture. Among other features, confirmed by last year, the SRM power detector, which interacts with the Trek detecto rspee dand cadence inserted in the rear triangle.
