Trek Road Bikes
Trek is a US bike manufacturer whose work spans over three and a half decades. Its bikes have produced world championship wins and also been enjoyed by millions across the world for fun, exercise and everything in between.
If you want race-ready performance from a Trek bike then the Madone range is one of its broadest and most comprehensive family of cycles. The Madone 6 Series is famed thanks to the fact that it has been used by the winners of nine of the past 12 Tour de France races. These are also one of the few bikes which Trek still puts together by hand and so you can enjoy class-leading excellence from this flagship collection.
If you want a lightweight female-specific road bike which will not cost the earth then the Trek Lexa range is probably going to represent your safest choice. The entry-level Lexa features a 100 Series Alpha Aluminium frame, Bontrager T1 tyres, Shimano 2300 drivetrain components and the same top tier geometry you will find on many of the more expensive models.
Trek Speed Concept
The Speed Concept road bikes from Trek are intended to be used by serious triathletes, although the 2 Series editions are priced and kitted out to fit into tighter budgets while still retaining the essential benefits of this type of cycle. The Speed Concept bikes are designed in order to cope with any aerodynamic problem which might be thrown at them and Trek employs extensive use of wind tunnels during the development process to ensure that every angle is covered.
If you want a road bike which is less about racing and more about fitness and fun then the Trek FX range is the most extensive and feature packed on offer. The simple FX 7.0 has an alloy frame, steel fork, Shimano Tourney and Altus components along with a comfortable Bontrager SSR saddle. It is suitable for covering long distances, so you can use it when you head into work each day or take it out at the weekend for some fun in the sun.
When the road runs out you might be out of luck with many bikes, but Trek has a few cyclocross offerings available for those who want an all-purpose platform for two wheeled adventure. The Ion CX range is the cheaper of its cyclocross offerings, utilising alloy frames, SRAM components and Bontrager rims and tyres for solid off-road performance and grip which is also transferrable to the tarmac without too much trouble.
The Cronus CX bikes from Trek take the cyclocross approach a little further. The Pro model introduces an OCLV carbon frame alongside a Bontrage Race X Lite Cross fork for precise control and manoeuvrability when you get into a sticky situation. Meanwhile the Cronus CX ultimate utilises Sram Force components for the drivetrain, Avid Shorty Ultimate cantilever brakes and lightweight handlebars and seatpost to keep the bike as manageable as possible. These bikes, like all of Treks road-ready offerings, are finished to a high quality and come with the backing of a reputable brand.
