TO THE PEOPLE WHO CARE ABOUT THIS

Well...it's here, Project One is now on the trek website. They have, i think 14 custom colors for the frames. You could now put campagnolo's on treks straight from the factory! Can't wait to see em' on the road where they belong!

They'll really stick you for the upgrades, huh? Fancy paint for $550? Who do they think they are, Colnago?

I was thinking the same thing. Oh no, I'm thinking like a lawyer now?? -J/K'ing! Well, my name is "Doug" also, so I guess I'm safe. $550 is a bit high for a scheme that isn't really custom.

It's about time Trek makes some paint options available. My LBS is the 3rd highest Trek seller in the world and OCLV's are a dime a dozen around here. Seeing a few varied paint schemes will be welcome. I like the Klein paint schemes better, especially the Team Gerolsteiner.

I just clicked through the custom menu and came up with this:

Frame: 5900

Frame Color: Pave Flambe

Custom Name: Nessism

Bar and Stem: TTT Zepp XL

Saddle: Selle San Marco Era Ti Rails Leather USPS

Group: Record Double

Wheels: Bontrager Race X Lite Carbon

Seatpost: Campagnolo Record Carbon

LAF Donation: $100.00

Total Price: $6,094.99

I had to go for the LAF donation to get the total over $6k.

The only problems are I don't have the jack, and I would be embarrassed to show up at a group ride with it.
