Trek 1.5 Compact Road Bike

The Trek 1.5 Compact represents the perfect blend of performance and affordability. It is a road bike that ups the stakes when it comes to component and build quality but it still comes in at a price point that will gain it a lot of attention. There are obviously many valid rivals to this bike out there, but none quite manage to pull it off to the same degree as the Trek 1.5 Compact.

Things look good at first glance as it has an Alpha White aluminium frame that should give you many miles of solid, consistent performance without weighing you down. A carbon fork from Bontrager ensures that the inevitable toil of eating up the road ahead will not leave you battered and bruised as it will absorb vibrations without passing them on to the rider. Even the seatpost is fashioned from carbon by Bontrager and this level of material is not often seen at this price point. Shimano Tiagra components mean that gear changes occur slickly and without delay, which can help to enhance your racing ability in an instant.

The Trek 1.5 Compact lets its looks do the talking, with a black frame and white lettering showing that it is not a bike that beats around the bush. Whether you are going to take it out for a spin to get fit at the weekend or ride it in competitive conditions, the Trek 1.5 Compact will make sure that you have confidence from the word go and an able machine to act as your companion over the many miles ahead.
