Trek Madone 3.1 2011 Road Bike

Female cyclists who want to get the edge on their competition and do not mind investing a little more money to get the job done will be well advised to check out the Trek Madone 3.1. This is a road bike, which is designed to appeal to enthusiasts and features carbon components and a carbon frame to make it as light and speedy as possible. It has a lot to live up to, given that it is named after a mountain, but it should meet your high expectations if you have a relatively high budget and want to get a bike which can help see you to victory.

Trek Madone 3.1 2011 Overview

Carbon is rife throughout the Trek Madone 3.1, from the frame to the front fork and even the seatpost. Carbon is a sought after material in the world of cycling and although improvements in alloy frame manufacture mean that metal is clawing back some ground, anyone who is serious about competing will be looking to invest in a carbon-centric bike. Because carbon is light it allows more power to go into producing forward momentum, reducing the impact of problematic inclines and also making an impression on downhill straights. Tektro R540 calliper brakes will make sure that the bike can be kept under total control whilst Shimano and Bontrager components bring experience and solid reputations to the table.

The Trek Madone 3.1 has a grey frame but its design is defined by the light turquoise detailing on the Bontrage gel tape grips and the Madone detailing. Some will be very keen on this design but others will want something that is a little less bright. However, this bike is likely to win fans regardless of personal design preferences because it promises to fire riders to the head of the pack in a competitive situation.
