For years now, Trek's Madones have set the standard for excellence, winning everything from local races to Grand Tours. The full-carbon 3.1 WSD is made from 300-Series OCLV carbon with a Bontrager Race carbon fork. This frameset is light, stiff and comfortable because the folks at Trek are masters with the material, they do it right. The solid components are chosen for their combo of durability, reliability and straight-up value like the 10-speed SRAM Apex drivetrain with compact cranks and Bontrager wheels and controls. The geometry is smack-dab in the middle between upright and aggressive racer, it's neutral without feeling dull; fast, without being twitchy.

I ride to/from work and ride for fitness. I've completed several endurance rides with my old road bike and the difference with my 3.1 for endurance is out of this world. I love how smooth the gears shift. In the past I've purchased a new bike almost every year trying to find a "good" one. I will be keeping this one for many years. Love it
Be sure to learn how to change the gears! Left hand is for front (large) derailleur. Left: half click uses the large disc derailleur. FULL click on left side is to change to the smaller front derailleur disc. Right hand is for rear (9 small) derailleur. Right: Half click brings the gear up. Full click brings it down in front (makes pedaling easier).Clicking for gear change depending of left or right side- always means towards the bike. I had a hard time adjusting to the SRAM's at first but now love it once I got use to it! It's as easy as a "tap" or "tap-tap", or the word "click". Also, this bike is intended for clip in shoes. You get more out of your work out! This is what the bike is built for! Very quick and responsive! Not to mention, lightweight at 19 pounds! I do not have a bike rack or SUV but after taking the front wheel off, the bike fits perfectly in my 2 door coupe!My LBS went above and beyond for my service(s). Fitting and refitting to make sure the bike was appropriate for my size (4'11"). You won't regret this bike! Good luck! Happy, safe & smart cycling!
