All volume bike manufacturers build their bikes to a standard mesomorphic body type. It makes sense to do this as it’s a very ‘average’ body type. The problem is we are all a bit different. And if you happen to be one of those people who is different to the average, to a greater or lesser extent, then you are likely to require different bars, stem and seat post cap / saddle than the standard bike. Take the Trek Domane SLR 6 Disc pictured here for instance. In standard guise, this would retail for around £4,250. But chances are that when it arrives and you are ready for your fit, you will need to replace bar (Bontrager Iso Core), Stem (Bontrager Pro Stem) and saddle which together comes to a tidy £470 or so. Add in new bar tape and we’re at £500. Alternatively, select Trek’s Project 1 programme and the same bike now retails at £4,850. However, we now have the flexibility to choose the exact bar, stem and saddle that works for you. There are no redundant parts and because you are on the Project 1 programme, you can now select from a range of colours only available to P1 customers such as this stunning Trek Segafredo edition. For very little cost, you’ve made it your bike.
