Product Details

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.

      Comments:

      Commute over 200km per week over four days and the ride is quite good considering. However, for the price, rep and expectations the most basic of things have been overlooked... 1. Botranger saddle is a pain in the butt even with knicks but you DO get used to it! 2. Gearing mechanism is quite temperamental and at times noisy. I have had the bike for 4 weeks and the chain has come off at least that many times. Also due to not sitting in correct position, stop/starts are quite amusing when the gears decide to find their place... 3, Get rid of the pedals - I am swapping to Wellgo Trekking Bicycle Bike Flat Pedals LU-C27G 4. You wouldn't expect the handlebar taping to fall off after a couple of weeks would you??? 5. Bell - Most of my riding is in forward stance so I have to elevate to engage bell for oncoming peds et at - this could be placed closer to the handlebar curve so that I wouldn't have to move my upper body as much when travelling at higher speeds. Bottomline - great ride but too many faults for price for my liking. Would recommend to friend and let them weigh pros and cons for themselves

      I use my bike for fitness and recreational riding, I have found it to be a excellent ride and value for money. Currently I can not ride it for four weeks due to a injury.

      First of all, this bike is AMAZING value for the money if you are looking for an entry level road bike. When my Trek 3900 was stolen, I was considering getting a road bike and the 1.1 perfectly fit the bill. If you are considering making a similar change, just know that the 1.1 is MUCH faster but you will sacrifice a little bit of comfort for that speed. Not much, but a little. The 3900's shocks and larger tires used to absorb all the bumps of rocks on the road. This is not a problem for my 30~ minute commute, but may be an issue on longer journeys. The carbon fork makes things a bit smoother, but you still feel pretty connected to the road. One thing I do miss about the 3900 were the very low gears which made long climbs a breeze. The gears and shifters are the main difference between the 1.1, 1.2, and 1.5 so I can't really fault Trek for that. All in all, the 1.1 is a terrific bike for the price point. When my 3900 was stolen, I bought a 1.1. If my 1.1 was stolen, however, without a question I would buy another 1.1.

      I use it for casual/rec and exercise. I don't race so its perfect for my use. it is really light in my opinion 22 lbs. Shimano Claris is good no problem in shifting gears quiet. Responsive and quick the fastest I had so far is 15-17 mph but I think It can go faster than that, depend on the road condition. The bike didn't come with kickstand :-( .

            I am an avid runner who is looking to get into triathlons. As someone who had never been on a road bike, and after doing a lot of research, I went with the 1.1 It is a great bike to learn on. A fun bike to ride. The price point for the bike was perfect considering how well put together it is.

            This is my first road bike and I love it. I ride 20-30 miles a day 5 days a week and this bike is perfect for that. For the price, you cannot find a better riding bike. I really like how lightweight and responsive this bike is. I am 6'1" and went for the 59. I couldn't be happier with the fit. After about 750 miles, I got some shoes and some pedals. I don't plan on any more upgrades for a while.
