TREK ROAD BIKE SALE
Now available at The Bike Shed Stores
The Trek 1.1C (the C stands for compact, referring to its compact chainset) is the go-to starter road bike. Designed by the same team and produced in the same factory as Trek's flagship models such as the Emonda, Domane and Madone, the 1.1 takes the expertise of some of the world's most accomplished bike manufacturers and condenses it down to a price point available to the masses.
Starting with the Trek 100 series aluminium frame, accompanied by Trek's very own carbon fibre fork, the Trek 1.1c then makes great use of Trek's sister company Bontrager's expertise in the components market, using Bontrager wheels, tyres, saddle, seatpost, handlebars, stem, even their bar tape. Topped off with Shimano's 8 speed Claris groupset, giving you 8 gears on the rear cassette (with the smallest cog having 11 teeth and the biggest having 28), along with a compact double chainset, comprising of a 'big ring' of 50 teeth, and a 'little ring' of 34. A great combination of quality and value oozes from the Trek 1.1C.

The Women's equivalent to the Trek 1.1C is the Lexa C, another of Trek's entry level bikes that perfectly usilises the years of experience and knowledge aquired by the design and manufacturing team at Trek, to create a bike that is affordable for women across the world. As explained above, the 'C' stands for Compact, and is reference to the compact chainset included with this Lexa, no longer does a woman need a triple chainset to get up the Devon hills, with the lightweight Lexa, you'll be flying up the hills.
The Lexa is the perfect all rounder, it's light, fast and race ready when you are, but comes with hidden mudguard and pannier rack mounts. So if commuting and touring is more your thing, don't be fooled by the Lexa's ladylike looks, it'll handle whatever you throw at it and always come back for more.

When designing the Trek Emonda, every finite detail was pored over with a single goal in mind, to create the lightest line of production road bikes ever offered. Trek being Trek, they succeeded; the Emonda was a huge hit and Trek decided to continue that success into the Aluminium range. Now, with a frame weight of 1050g (size 56), the Emonda ALR uses Trek's 300 series aluminium construction to create one of the lightest, stiffest and fastest aluminium road bikes available.
The Trek Emonda ALR 5 takes the lightweight frame, adds Bontrager's premium elite level finishing kit, and 11 speed Shimano 105, the 3rd tier groupset in the Shimano mechanical road range, behind Dura Ace and Ultegra.
Another bike that would make the perfect all rounder, race your local criterium, enter a Sunday Sportive, or pop on some mudguards, a pannier rack and ride it to work and back. The Emonda ALR is a real do it all, do it well kind of bike.

Built upon the same 300 series aluminium frameset as the Emonda ALR 5, the ALR 6 comes with a few very worth while upgrades. The Shimano 105 groupset makes way for its lighter & crisper bigger brother. The Shimano Ultegra groupset makes up for it's extra value with more than just the ~200g weight saving, the cripness of its shifting and the power of the brakes are undescribably worth the extra investment. That coupled with the Bontrager carbon seatpost, Race wheelset and R2 tyres. The Emonda ALR 6 the Emonda for the cyclist who deserves to treat themself.
