Trek's 1.1 is a great choice for road riding fun. It boasts Trek's light and nimble-handling Alpha aluminum frame that has a slightly higher front end for comfort. This sweet road machine is equipped with easy-rolling Bontrager wheels, a 16-speed drivetrain with a compact crankset for flying up the climbs and powerful dual-pivot brakes for confidence and control. You'll also appreciate the fine Bontrager seat and reliable Bontrager tires.

      I sent Trek an email asking for specific recommendations for an alternate crankset and cassette that would be compatible with my 1.1C and would give me the lowest possible low gearing for climbing hills and mountains. I never received a reply. Perhaps someone at Trek can now answer my question. Thanks!

        I needed to upgrade to a lighter bike from the hybrid I have riden for the last 14 years. I wanted to do some endurance training and the heavier bike just wasn't cutting it. Although this is just an entry model road bike, it will definitely get you to a lighter bike without costing too much.

            Great bike for the most part. Brakes are lacking some. The crank isn't stiff enough. Not sue why they put a 30 dollar crank on this bike and didn't just use Claris all around. It's only 75 dollars and I'm sure it's cheaper for trek. And the pedals that came with it? They were awful. Not sure why they even came with the bike. But overall it is a decent bike. Just get some real pedals and you should be set.

            The saddle is very hard and I wear a high quality biker shorts if I did not I could not ride as long as I do. (about 20 miles a day) I am looking at getting a new saddle. Brakes could be better too. Other wise I love the bike. Fix the seat and brakes and I would rate this bike 5 stars.

              I use this bicycle for basically everything. I use it to run errands and I used it this past spring to cycle from Los Angeles to Berkeley, California. That being said, I love this bicycle. It's light, responsive and at a terrific price considering the value. I test rode a similarly priced Giant at the LBS and found it to be substantially stiffer than this one. This bicycle is my first road bike and my first love in what will be a long relationship with cycling. You can not go wrong with this bike. That being said I suppose this bike's saddle was a bit uncomfortable to use at first, but I don't notice it anymore and it is no complaint of mine. *don't use this as a commuter unless you want the paint to chip off very quickly

                Started biking to replace running and it is working out much better than I expected.I did some research and asked a few people who I know are into biking and they recommended the 1.1 road bike for a starter bike. All my research said this bike was best in class for an entry level road bike. I've logged about 200 miles and the more I ride and get a feel for the bike the better it performs. I ride in Central Park NYC and see many super fast super serious riders with expensive gear and know that by the end of the summer me and my 1.1 will be able to keep up with some of these guys. I'm totally satisfied with the Trek 1.1, Trek finance and the Trek dealers in NYC.
