90% sure about purchasing a 08 Trek 1.2

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

90% sure about purchasing a 08 Trek 1.2

Going through my LBS, really like the guys and they seem genuine. Iíll be in the area for a couple years and decided this was a good route to go. $770 is what it's going to cost me. I'll get a free trek cable lock and water bottle equipment and 10% off any accessories. Wanted to do a little more searching before I made my final decision. Decided to go with the 1.2 over the 1000. Thoughts welcomed.

Fun! I'd just check if they have the 2007 model of the Trek 1500, it delivers quite a bang for the buck, especially now. Ask them to give you a free fitting too. That's the one thing that will make you faster.

For what it's worth I have the women's version and I love it! Granted it is my first road bike but of all the bikes I test road this one stood out to me. I would say that if you're comfortable on the bike then go for it. They're nice entry level bikes.

just make sure you test ride the bike and the other candidates before you make your final decision.

And fit is key!

If you are interested in the 1.2 I can sell you my 50cm 2007 1500 for far cheaper than $770. It has better components too.....

OP - Trek - nice bike to start with - well-built, well-backed, good value. But MAKE SURE you're buying a bike that fits you. Take advantage of your chance to try a few different bikes and to be fitted by a good bike shop.
