Trek 2.3 Triple Road Bike

Trek 2.3 Triple Overview

There are so many road bikes on the market at all the price points under the sun, which can make picking one a little tricky. Fortunately, Trek is here to help. The Trek 2.3 Triple is here to court you for your affections, so let us go over its key features and see whether or not it deserves to remain jilted or have its coy glances reciprocated.

The Trek 2.3 Triple is a race-ready road bike, which certainly looks the part. Its frame geometry is borrowed from the Madone range but it uses aluminium and so is a little easier on the wallet. In addition, it has carbon forks and a carbon seatpost. These enhance the comfort and ride quality as well as ensuring that it handles well. The carbon will be lighter than if Trek had used aluminium, so when you have to get your legs pumping to start a steep ascent, you will be putting more of your energy into forward motion.

Shimano 105 components are used extensively on the Trek 2.3 Triple. The gears and brakes come from this range and bear the stamp of a brand, which basically promises performance regardless of your skill and fitness levels. This is a bike that would ideally suit someone who is serious about cycling but still looking for an enthusiast’s ride, which is at the affordable end of the spectrum. Its black and silver frame matches well with the focused look of the frame geometry and seated position so it should prove to be a valuable ally in any road battle.
