2012 Trek 1.1

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.

      If you can get past the fact that this is an entry level bike, you'll see how great this bike actually is. I purchased the 1.1 as a second bike to get into road biking. I did not want to spend a fortune with that fear that I might grow tired of it and drop it all together. This bike does everything you need if you're starting out. I understand that for more money you're getting the better components and lighter frame, but for me that wasn't a huge concern. I ride with a friend who rides on a $1300 Felt bike and I'm able to keep up no problem. I haven't found a significant weight difference between the 2 bikes either. I've put about 100 miles on it so far in the 2 weeks that I've had the bike and I'm still getting completely comfortable with it. I will say this, if I knew I was going to be enjoying myself this much, I would have probably sprung for the 1.5 but I have no regrets. This bike will get me through this season and next year I can upgrade. If you're looking for an entry level bike, you can't beat this for the price.

      I just renetered the bike market recently. I rode a variety of bikes before I decided on the 1.1, it just felt right. I ride 2 to three times a week, 10-20 miles. I love this bike for what it is, it is an entry level bike, it is not the Madone. But I did not want to spend that much money. If you are seriously thinking of riding a road bike give this one some serious consideration. Has not failed me yet! I love to ride this bike.

        I used to ride a lot but it's been 20 years since I got on a bike on a daily basis for training rides. I bought this great entry-level bike and couldn't be happier with it. It rides nice and solid, the components are smooth and easy, and generally just an all around good bike. I recommend it!

In conclusion if you getting back or new to cycling defintely get this bike, wont regret it. Hey cant beat the price for such a good bike and is a TREK.

            This is the first road bike I've purchased and I absolutely love it! Great bike for the price, its fast and definitely stands up to bikes in the $1000+ range. The toe overlap took some getting used to but that's a problem on all road bikes at first. The stock pedals are terrible, I upgraded to egg beaters within a week of having the bike. I plan on having this bike for a while and taking it through some triathlons.A great bike. GO TREK!!!!

              Was looking to get an entry level tri bike to pick up the sport after years of long distance running. Got a road bike as a starting point and could not be any happier. Great bike, fast, reliable and easy to ride. Would HIGHLY recommend it.
