When’s Trek’s new Bottom Bracket spec coming out?.... I mean, while you’re making predictions and all.

Spring is MS150 season. Everyone is out riding, and Trek gives up an opportunity to release the bike targeted to these groups? That just doesn't make sense to me. Maybe they're targeting something else with this bike, but that's just speculating.

A June release just doesn't make sense to me. Sorry.

That may even be the reason why the new Domane is slightly behind schedule. But yes, I do believe Trek will either introduce a BB with a 90.5mm wide shell that is DUB/30mm spindle compatible -or- they do what Specialized has done with the new Roubaix and just revert back to 68mm English threaded. If not with the new Domane, then definitely with the MY2021 Emonda.

Missing an entire season of business makes more sense to you though? They didn't give up an opportunity...they messed up and fell behind schedule. That doesn't warrant delaying the announcement until next April. That would be insane.

With a June release for the Domane? They already missed it.

So you don't ride your bike during the summer and through fall? Not to mention the Tarmac, Emonda, Teammachine, etc. were all released in July...and the latter do did not really ship until August.

Additionally the new Roubaix is out and in stock now. The new Defy has been out for a couple months. Trek has every reason to get the new Domane out as soon as they can.

I live in Texas. I ride 12 months of the year, but that said, the lower-end bikes are usually sold at the start of the year - many for New Years resolutions, and others for MS150 season. Summer in Texas is brutal, and only the most dedicated ride in June/July/August, and hardly the ones they'd be targeting with a new Domane release.

Trek World is in the fall right?

They're surprisingly tight lipped despite the fact that new models are available almost immediately after announcement.

BTW, while playing on Project One, just now, I spotted Force AXS as an available option on the Domane SLR7.

That’s great. Do you have an explanation for why Trek hasn’t bothered offering a complete bike with eTap AXS? ;) Seems like a glaring oversight at the height of the retail season!

Cannondale hasn’t bothered offering a SuperSix with eTap AXS either, though they do have Synapses with those groups since the Synapse isn’t due for a refresh for another year.

Sometimes the obvious answer is the right answer.

Trek is no longer offering a rim brake option in Project One for the Domane SLR. Only way to get a 2019 rim brake Domane SLR is to get the frameset.

I'm guessing the next Domane will be disc brake only across the range.

You should go check again.

You can project one any frameset they have in inventory IIRC

Just did. Domane SLR 6, 7, 8, 9 are only available with disc brakes on Project One in the USA. The 2019 models used to have a rim brake option under frame options in project one when they were first released. No such option any more.

Where are you seeing a rim brake offering?
