[Review] 2014 Trek 1 Series Road Bikes

2014 Trek 1 Series Look More and More Like High End Bikes

For 2014 Trek has impressed us by giving every Trek 1 series frame a carbon fork. The frame remains Aluminum, but it has been redesigned. The down tube now comes with a curved leading edge and a truncated trail. It's chopped off square at the back in a similar way to the KVF tubing that Trek use on their Madone and Speed Concept bikes. Three different 1 series are available: 1.5, 1.2, and 1.1.

The 1.1 is the cheapest road bike that Trek produces. 100 Series Alpha Aluminum frame with a Trek carbon road fork, Shimano 2300 8-speed drivetrain with Vuelta Corsa, 50/34 (compact) crankset, Bontrager Approved alloy rims and Bontrager T1 700x23c tires.

Other features of the 1 Series include Rack and fender mounts, H2 Geometry and Shimano Claris (1.1), Shimano Sora (1.2) and Shimano Tiagra (1.5) front and rear derailleurs. Bontrager fills out the rest of the componentry to keep it light on your wallet too. Strong, light, exhilirating, and race ready.

If you've been riding for a while and looking for your second or third road bike, you may want to check out some of Trek's other 2014 bikes.
