      Comments:

      This bike is great value for an entry level bicycle. The low price comes at a cost of good components though, and you'll soon want to upgrade. This is a great bike for those who aren't really sure if cycling is for them yet. One problem is the (over)use of white paint. The white stains easily and is difficult to clean. It will also need a bunch of small adjustments over the first few months.

          My wife got me this bike for our 10th anniversary. We have small kids and never spend a lot on one another but went all out this past year. I could not be happier! Since getting this Trek I have gotten in with a group of other guys to go for 30-50 mile road rides on the weekends. This has been a life-changing event that has given a new love and hobby. Thanks to Trek and [...]. Most of all, thanks to my wife.

            Found this bike on sale at LBS, purchased for a friend. Took it for a test ride and fell in love with it. I currently ride a Trek SC 9.9 and have previously put 4k miles on a Trek Equinox 9.9. This bike feels as light as mine and shifts just as smooth as my SRAM Force group set. Very comfortable ride and I agree with the other reviews, priced way below what you would expect for a bike of the same quality. I am a Trek for life guy because of their outstanding bikes, customer care and warranty. Can not go wrong with this bike!!!! Hey, if you don't like it, throw it on [@] and get your money back. I saw a five year old one today going for almost $500 with 16 bids and counting!!

            This is a great road bike. I have ridden road bikes before, but this was my first road bike and it is great. It handles well and is pretty light. You get a lot out of this bike especially for the price you are paying. The seat is a bit uncomfortable, but it is not annoyingly bad; it is a pretty non-consequential problem that is easy to live with and easy to fix. So overall this bike is a great ride and makes for a great first road bike.

                  The most predictable road bike. comfortable ride due to upright position. handles well, like the trek madone 5.2 that my friend has. lightweight at 21 pounds. rode my 1.2 all the time, averages 100 miles a week. I already had a 1000 miles and is an excellent bike. hilly roads with no problems. shifting is great after minor adjustments. brakes are good if you need them.

                    I have had this bike for a week and it rides so smooth. The gears shift very smooth. [...]This is a nice bike for the money.
