Trek 2.1 Triple Road Bike

Trek 2.1 Triple Overview

The Trek 2.1 Triple edges into a busy segment of the road bike market and makes a good case for itself due to its aluminium frame, various carbon components and its links with championship bikes from the same manufacturer. It is relatively affordable without being hampered by cheap components and its features list has enough compelling reasons to make it a viable choice for riders of variable skill levels and experience.

The Trek 2.1 Triple is definitely designed for road racing, but it is worth bearing in mind that it will be just as valuable to those who want to improve their performance in a non-competitive environment or indeed for people who are looking for a cycle to keep them entertained and fit in their leisure time. The bike is branded with plenty of names, which even the uninitiated will know and whilst this may not mean much to some people, it is reassuring to see the logos of Bontrager and Shimano plastered liberally about the place. Tektro brakes are on hand to enhance the precision with which you can control the bike and everything is smoothly knitted together.

The Trek 2.1 Triple is styled in a modern manner, with blue and grey flashes helping to add definition to the frame. As you blaze along the road it will be impossible to tell the difference between this bike and one three times its price, which is arguably true about the performance, provided you have the ability to make the most out of the features that the bike offers. Whether darting through country lanes or tackling mountain slopes, the Trek 2.1 Triple is the most balanced way to get the job done.
