Trek's 2013 1.5 Road Bike - Review - Great Value Bike


2013 Trek 1.5 Road Bike

The 2013 Trek 1.5 Road Sport Bike

An absolutely amazing value!!

Trek pays the same amount of attention to detail and features on their entry level sport bikes as they do on their high-end bikes. The frame on the 1.5 is Trek's 100 series Alpha Aluminum, and it comes with 10 gears which is the standard in race performance gearing. It's compact 2 chain ring crank saves weight while still offering a great combination of climbing power and flat land speed.

Trek uses their classic H2 fit which puts a slightly higher head tube than normal, giving extra comfort to the back and neck. It's tour tested geometry has the perfect balance of handling comfort and acceleration.

Shimano Tiagra STI shifters are an awesome addition for the 1.5. They are trigger shifters that have a nice optical display for easy gear reading, and contain both the up/down triggers and the brake lever in one spot, allowing for a more efficient ride. The front and rear derailleurs are also by shimano, as well as the 12-30, 10 speed cassette.

The comfort aspects of the bike are handled easily by Bontrager. That means you can trust that the saddle, handlebars, and grips will have excellent geometry and will help to reduce road fatigue over longer rides.

Come check out this very affordable but very nice bike at Bumstead's Bicycles. We are located at 1038 W. 4th St. in Ontario. 909-984-9067
