2012 Trek Lexa - Women's

Trek's Lexa is designed from the ground up for women so it will fit you perfectly and ride like a dream. Its light, nimble-handling Trek Alpha White Series aluminum frame dances down the road and floats over the climbs. And, this thoroughbred is equipped with precision components from the easy-rolling wheels and tires, to the crisp-shifting, wide-range drivetrain and confidence-inspiring dual-pivot brakes with women's-specific levers. You also get a nice women's seat and a fine Bontrager bar and stem for top comfort. This fun road rig is ready to take you everywhere you want to go, from touring the countryside to cruising local loops for fitness.

    Comments:

    The Lexa S is my first road bike and it has changed my outlook of riding a bicycle. I love it! We had a rough start at first, but I went to get a bike fit and now we are tuned to each other and the bike now fits like a glove. I now have to overcome speed with turns. I feel this bike is really fast, I'm just not quite ready (I've fallen off a bike recently). I tend to ride for at least 11 miles a day. On weekends, we take longer trips, close to 40 miles. I only have a problem with braking from the hoods. I can get some breaking but not enough to come to a complete stop fast if needed. I have to change hand position if needing to brake fast. Other than that, I enjoy riding my Lexa and look forward to taking the bike out everyday. Best purchase I've made!

      I wanted a new bike, I had spent $300 on a used giant from an LBS, but it never felt like it was "my" bike. I even opted for an old American made Road master I had scored at a garage sale over the Giant. So when I had the funds to make a serious purchase I did my researched. There were so many great reviews on the Lexa as an "entry level" road bike. I went to my LBS to text ride and I purchased her that very day. It wasn't until I got her home and really cranked on her that I realized how much power this bike has. She effortlessly climbs hills, picks up speed quickly, she shifts gears easily and it's a comfortable ride. I would definitely recommend the Lexa S if you want a reliable bike for under a grand that tries like a pro!

      Comments:

      I have been a dedicated recreational rider and occasional athlete since 2008 with a Trek from 2000/2001 that I love (still goes strong). The only problem is that I'm not happy riding it in the wet or on anything other than beautiful smooth roads. I purchased the Lexa to open up a little more terrain without the weight of a mountain bike. I've done one 12 mile test ride in the wet - handles just fine on wet pavement. It is hard on bumpy trails, so don't expect a comfy ride (even with a nicer seat). The gears seem fine, they are the lower end but I haven't really put in enough time to break them in so we'll see. I also swapped the seat and pedals out. I've sat on stone floors that are more comfortable than that seat. Overall this is a good everyday bike for zipping around on a variety of trails. I've signed up to do a couple of triathlons and I don't think I'd use it for those, but it's just fine for every day biking.

        A lightweight comfortable bike - Great as a new bike for novice road biker. Front breaks tend to stick a little and struggle at the first drop of water. Gears change with ease

          Comments:

          The Lexa S has been a wonderful bike so far. I am very pleased with how comfortable the seat is and how natural it feels to ride the bike. As a beginning cyclist training for my first triathlon, I feel confident training on the Lexa S. It has been very good not only on trail rides, but also on steep hills and more uneven terrain. It has a good amount of gear options and the brakes are responsive. It's also nice that the Trek store offers supportive customer service, so if I ever need to get something fixed or replaced, they would assist me. I would definitely recommend this bike!

              I bought this bike in the spring of 2011 and have put over 4,000 miles on it. When choosing the bike, the gentleman at the bike shop had me ride several different brands & sizes. This protocolar one fit me the best. I like to ride TOSRV (220 miles in 2 days) and I love every moment on it!
