    I bought this bike 6 months ago. First road bike. Have been riding Mountain Bikes all my life, so this was a bit of a change. I bought it orginally for the sole purpose of going faster than my MTB hybrid would go (My MTB tops out at about 28mph on the flats) On the Trek 1.2 I've so far hit a flat land top speed of 32mph, so this bike delivers. I also intend to use it for triathlons of which its totally game. It may not be a $5000 bike. But it sure acts like one. It's light and it's acceleration is high. Uphill, it provides adequately with proper down shifting. Downhill its big front gear leaves plenty of room for powering down that descent. I usually top out at 35mph due to cars being around, but I'm sure this bike could handle a top speed of 45mph in top gear, legs spinning of course. It's durability and stabiltiy is uncanny, as I almost wiped out the other day from a car cutting in front of me, and caught a crack in the road, causing me to wobble. I recovered and no tire or rim damage, allowing me to finish my ride! As far as retaining this bike or upgrading a new one, I figure it's better to just upgrade this great platform of a bike (Clipless Pedals and Shoes, and an aero bar). As I started riding at an avg speed of 17mph 6 months ago, I am now upwards of 21 mph avg over 12 miles. I'd like to retain this beauty as long as possible and see just how far it will go. Distance and Race wise!

    Comments:

    The chainrings make a lot of noise when it's in the big ring and the cassette constantly makes a lot of noise. Not sure if the bike is poorly made or if adjustments are needed but changing gears is not very reliable. It would not properly shift onto the cogs or it would make a lot of noise.

      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

      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.

        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.

            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
