Description

Meet Trek's Emonda ALR 4, a bike ready to make you a cyclist. It starts with Trek's 300 Series aluminum frame, which rides beautifully and is impressively low weight. Light is one thing, but what really sets the Emonda apart is the ride. The dialed geometry gives you that lively, yet stable feel that makes people get on their bikes in the first place. Trek didn't skimp on components either. A full 2x10-speed Shimano Tiagra gruppo and tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels grace the frame and blow the performance-to-value ratio out of the water.

E2 Head Tube

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.

Big Bang for the Buck

Pros:
High-end Componentry, Lightweight, Great Looking
Cons:
Best Uses:
Coming off an old chromoly hybrid, the frame geometry took a couple rides to get used to. The full Tiagra groupo performs exceptionally - better than the old 105. Lightweight and responsive, it's just fun to ride. It also looks killer, which is not supposed to be a factor in a bike purchase but I get other cyclists checking it out and asking what I'm riding quite often. I ride paved trails and street 60-120 miles per week and it's more comfortable than my old roadie. If you don't have the budget for a carbon fiber frame look at the Emondas.

it is my first road bike, i jumped from a hybrid fx 7.2 to this bike and so far it looks awesome, very light, easy to handle. tires are kind of basic, but you can upgrade to better ones in the future. this is a really good looking bike, you may not want to lock it outside.
