I haven't ridden this one that much yet, but I'll tell you some reasons I love her and even though I've only ridden her about fifty miles, I did sit on her every day for the first entire week she was here. Even if I just sat on her for a second or slowly and gingerly rode her a tiny bit inside the apartment.
The first time I rode this bike, I was five miles out of town before I knew it. It's so light and easy and fast! I had to use the GPS on my phone to find out where I was, got scared, and went home because I had absolutely nothing but my phone. No tools, no lights, nothing.
So I don't have very many informed opinions but I can remark on first impressions.
Fonts. Her fonts are magnificent. The color-scheme too.
It's a speedy road bike that's actually designed for women. And the Trek "Women's specific design" logo is good.
For some of my shopping process, I thought I was going to end up with a men's bike, because they're not actually that different- these treks. This one being so sexy and women's specific design helped me pull the trigger.
I just love this sticker. It's telling you A helmet is not an option. A helmet is standard operating equipment. The end.
The thoughtfulness of the designers putting that turquoise on the inside of the fork.
I also love that it weighs about as much as a kitten's eyelash and the mostly-black and white color scheme will help me match my gear and get-ups.
I've bought some bike clothes from Aerotech Designs. Beware! The website looks dorky at first, but there are some good things in there. They have affordable, Made in USA bicycle clothes and I'm very happy with the items I've bought.
I also will do a post about the shopping experience for this bike, because it was totally radical and deserves internet broadcast.
