Product Details

2013 Trek 1.2 C

Trek's 1.2 Compact 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 Bontrager's carbon fork, an impressive combination often seen on much more expensive machines. Add Shimano's reliable compact 18-speed drivetrain, powerful dual-pivot brakes and select Bontrager parts and you have an amazing road rig ready to take you everywhere you want to go, from touring the countryside to cruising local loops for fitness.

      My first real road bike, I use it for commuting to work, fitness and even race it. It's inexpensive enough and is so much faster than anything I've had before. So far, very happy

      Comments:

      Quite light at 21 lbs. even though considered on heavier side. Lose 6 lbs. to compensate to equal $_000 carbon bike weight of 15 lbs. :) Your own weight is more a factor. Bottom bracket is smooth. Wheels are not the lightest, but quite adequate for fast speed. Rims not perfectly true. Can see slight wobble. Wheel out of balance even after removing reflectors. Probably due to test riders, but still ok, minor tweeks. Brakes poorly adjusted and squeek like mad. Embarrassing! :( Was fine after full tweek and lube. SUPER ANNOYING SHIFTER RATTLE going over bumpy roadS. Both sides. Partly due to plastic insert under the indicator window. Siliconed it, but something else in the shifter still rattles. Rattle sudsides when holding on to hood. Inner shifter tab kept rubbing against outer. Very annoying shifting feel. Can't find any adjustments like other Brand. Derailleur was bent. Kept throwing my adjustments off, probably test riders again. Crank won't spin as freely as result. Not the best purchasing experience. CONCLUSION: Got bike on sale so won't complain too much. I'll deal with it. But still... Whether 1.1 or 1.2, not much diff. Best if fresh out of box. Like everyone says, should have gotten Tiagra.

        Comments:

        I bought this bike in September 2012. I currently have just over 5000 miles on it. If I had it to do over, I might get the 1.5 or a madone 2.1. For the money, you can't go wrong. Solid components. I keep up with riders that have full carbon and Ti bikes. This bike is unbelievably quiet, and smooth for an entry level bike. I was already sold on trek mountain bikes, and will eventually move up to a trek madone or domane full carbon. I plan on a new wheel set and saddle for this summer, otherwise the bike is just fine off the rack.

            Comments:

            I started riding again about 3 months ago with a hybrid but I found it hard to do more than 20 miles. I originally went in just to buy some shoes and pedals but the salesman suggested I look at a higher quality/ distance bike so I slept on it. I'm glad I took the chance to buy a bike that fits me(im 6'4") it makes long rides enjoyable and self rewarding. its the entry level trek series but for getting into the distance cycling it was a great choice. Only thing I might change would be opting for the 1.5 for a little more.Have owned the bike for about 2 months and I have gone over 500 miles with weekly rides of 50 miles +definitely recommend a pair of cycling shoes and pedals... pay the few extra bucks for the SL/ road pedals
