2014 Trek 1.2 T

Trek's 1.2 is a shining example of trickle-down technology. The heart and soul of this speed demon is Trek's 100 Alpha Series aluminum frame and carbon fork, an impressive combination often seen on much more expensive machines. Add Shimano's reliable, hill-conquering 27-speed drivetrain, powerful dual-pivot brakes and select Bontrager parts and you have an amazing road rig! It's ready, willing, and able to take you everywhere you want to go, from touring the countryside to cruising local loops for fitness.

    This was my first road bike in almost 30 years. I'm 280 pounds. We swapped out the crank for a heavier duty one, and swapped out the saddle for one with some more cushion. I've done repeated 30 and 40 mile rides on this bike, and frankly, it's been quite comfortable. I came out of my last 40 miler saying, "Yeah, a metric century is going to be no big deal." If you're used to the more aero posture on a road bike, it's a surprise when you're wearing a backpack, and it's not sliding around on your back - the H2 fit of this frame has you more upright instead of bent over the bars. This makes it a good choice for commuting, not to mention that the frame is built with the hardware to attach bags and racks from the start. I'm in my second season with the bike, and the only gripe is that the brakes are not very powerful, just like some of the reviewers claim. I don't know what can be done about that, but, seriously, unless you're drafting at 20 mph on someone else's rear in a pack of 20 fellow riders, it's no big deal. You just brake appropriately. If you're doing the kind of riding where braking power will actually make a difference, you're spending a lot more money on the bike to begin with! So, go ahead and buy the bike. You won't regret it.

    Comments:

    Given the price range we're talking about here, you dont really get more bang for your buck. The wheels on this bike are truly awesome compared to similarly spec'd/priced bikes, and the handlebars are a thing of beauty. The upright geometry is brilliant, making the transition to road cycling seamless and long rides seem less. On the other hand, the brakes are horrendous (I'm assuming to keep the overall price down). They have less stopping power than even my 5 year old, 350 dollar mountain bike. I'm not too keen on the 23c tires either. Also, the tire clearance on the back (with the seat tube)is bad: you probably could only fit a select few 28's on there, if any. Also, the 28 cassette is good enough, but a 32 would really complete this package Overall, this is a great entry level bike. Swap the tires for better rolling 25's,and get a granny cassette and you'll have a tremendous bike with wheels able to hold 275+ on harsh roads.

    I bought this roughly a year ago as my first new, as opposed to very old and used, road bike. The pricepoint for what you get in this bike is pretty great. It's a great bike for beginners because it can take quite a beating (I sprained my wrist in a crash on this bike and the bike was completely fine), the components are long-lasting, and it handles fluidly but not sluggishly. The triple-crank is also great for those wanting to do a little bit of hill climbing on this bad boy. It's admittdely a bit heavy for that sort of thing, but great training if you have the right attitude! I also did my first sportive on this bike, El Tour de Tucson, in the rain. It was great to be riding such a sturdy and rugged bike in such awful weather for the whole day. I've since upgraded to a carbon fiber racer, but I wouldn't have ever made that decision without spending so much time on this great bike. I still ride this puppy every day, and plan to for a very long time.

      I have never been big into road bikes, but I am going on a long European bike tour this summer, so i bought this "entry level bike" to train for that. First day on it, or any road bike, for that matter was today. I road it 70+ miles today and it handled like a dream. Looked at a Specialized for comparison, there was no comparison. This bike rocks. This is a great bike and the price is right too

      Comments:

      I'm an entry-level cyclist. Did two months of research on road bikes from entry-level to the higher end bikes (not just treks but specialized,giants,bmc, canon dale, etc.) and realized that trek seems to give you your bang for the money. I spent at least three hours a day reading and comparing bikes. It turns out the trek 1.2 2013, has been dramatically been upgraded from the previous year. With different shaping in the tube diameter to reduce weight, better components than previous years, awesome features in the fork, fork being carbon.I purchased it three weeks ago and already put 100miles on it. I love how easy it is to ride, despite the saddle being a bit hard for a beginners. (Butt hurts like crazy!) the shifting is responsive, the stiffness of the bike makes it easy to crank at it on up hills, and I love the color scheme on it. Compare to my roommate's 1.1 it's way lighter in weight. Also love the fact that the spokes that come with this model are the aero-flats (not sure if that is the technique name for them) but instead of the tradition round spokes, they are shaped a bit more flat to reduce wind drag. It also has the nice option of the speed trap also which is a plus! With the spec that comes with this bike I think it's worth the money. With its competitors in its class, nothing beats the prices and what u get for it.Not much negative things to say about this bike, other than the saddle being hard. But then again that's a beginners butt I'm riding on. Thanks trek for making amazing bikes.
