Trek 1.5 Triple Road Bike

Road bikes of the same calibre as the Trek 1.5 Triple are rarely this well priced. Although it is suitable for those on a budget there have been few compromises made to get it down to an affordable bracket. You still get an aluminium frame, carbon components, Shimano gears and Bontrager tyres. You also do not have to re-mortgage your house to afford all this racing pedigree.

So what makes the Trek 1.5 Triple worth shouting about? Firstly, it is great to see carbon being used on a bike this low down the food chain. The aluminium frame is solid in itself, but by adding a Bontrager approved carbon fork you will be able to enjoy the benefits of this material. The often jarring road surfaces will be gently ironed out by the carbon fork and it will not cut down on the stiffness of the bike, which means you can still accelerate quickly when it is time to pick up speed and sprint. The respected Shimano name is attached to many of the components so you can rely on the gear changes being fluid and effortless, which is particularly important when you are getting ready for a race.

The look of the Trek 1.5 Triple is in keeping with its racing credentials with an unfussy black frame with grey and white detailing ensuring that it will let you get on with the task of winning. The pedals feature an alloy cage, which will keep your feet from slipping and even if you are going to be using the bike mostly as a leisure tool, it is good to see such features onboard.
