Trek Womens Road Bikes

Trek is probably best known the road bike world by the fact that Lance Armstrong has ridden their bikes in the Tour for many years. This has lead directly to a significant growth in sales for the company, a good investment many would say. Trek have really thought about their road bike range and particular their women’s road bike selection. They offer a great choice at very different pricing levels from entry level to top of the range, each with great spec to match the price. The 2 ranges for 2011 are the 2010 launched Madone and the Lexa series. The Madone is touted as the race performance series and the Lexa as the sport series, of course the price reflects both of these attributes.
