Trek 1.2 Triple 2011 Road Bike

The Trek 1.2 Triple is a road bike with an arsenal of abilities that is well stocked with speed and stability. This makes it an ideal choice for anyone who wants to stand a chance in a competitive race. Despite its racing pedigree it will not cost the earth and still brings plenty to the table, including a lightweight alloy frame, carbon fork and slim-line, fast rolling tyres that will help you to tear across the tarmac and take your rivals down a peg.

Having set up the Trek 1.2 Triple as some kind of hardcore racing machine it is probably worth noting that it is not so brash as to exclude more casual riders from enjoying its features. This is a point worth mentioning because of its appealing price, so if you are just looking for a road bike that will help you to improve your fitness, train or simply cover long distances in comfort, this is a good option. The Bontrager carbon fork allows the bike to feel poised and agile while also dampening the effect of road rumble and the Alpha White aluminium frame is unshakable in the face of any course, whether it is an uphill slog or a straight line sprint for the finish.

The white frame with blue detailing and black Trek branding makes the 1.2 Triple a good-looking bike with no pretensions. You might argue that a bike is only as good as the rider and while this is often valid, the Trek 1.2 Triple makes sure that you have every opportunity to make the most of your cycling experience.
