Visit the Trek Project One Mobile Experience at the RAGBRAI Expo



Trek’s long-running Project One Custom Program allows customers to choose from a wide variety of paint schemes, colors and build kits, but only through the online portal, unless you happen to be located near the company’s headquarters in Waterloo, Wisconsin. That’s set to change in 2013 with the launch of the Project One Mobile Experience – a massive rolling showcase that will provide potential customers with the chance to see, touch and feel the possibilities firsthand.

Housed in an enormous custom trailer and towed by a similarly gargantuan Freightliner truck, the entire side of the Project One Mobile Experience opens via hydraulic cylinders to reveal an inviting showroom. Visitors are first greeted with three frames-in-white to introduce the starting points – the Madone 7-Series, the Domane 6-Series and the Speed Concept.

Afterward, they can see nearly three dozen paint scheme and color combinations firsthand along with a few build kit options, and then finalize their selections and place their orders at the on-board computer workstations.

The Project One Mobile Experience is scheduled to visit 250 dealers and several key events (including RAGBRAI) in North America this year alone and the program will likely expand into Europe next year.

The Project One Mobile Experience will be at the RAGBRAI Expo in Council Bluffs and then in the Bike Shop/Demo area of RAGBRAI through Des Moines.  To test ride a Trek on RAGBRAI, visit the demo trucks for more information.

I plan on stopping by the Trek showcase. I’m considering upgrading to a full carbon bike soon. Wouldn’t mind riding a Trek on one leg of RAGBRAI this year just to see if there’s a difference between the Trek and my Fuji.
