18 Oct 2012 Trek Lexa Women’s Road Bikes
Looking for a review of the Trek Lexa? Check it out here.
The 2011 Trek Lexa bikes were an amazing hit for Trek Bikes corporation.
It’s one of the top selling women’s road bikes. Many women asked for Lexa by name at demos, and dealers also told us they had many women coming in asking about them. Women love the comfortable fit, race-inspired performance, and the fact that we have so many color and graphics options. It was fantastic to see so many of them at the many triathlons that we sponsored this year. – Trek Women Brand Manager
These bikes are also a very searched term that brings many new readers to Bike Shop Girl. We should have a couple of Trek Lexa’s in our hands soon for review. Make sure to check back if you are looking for more riding feedback!
2012 Trek Lexa Road Bike Line Up
2012 Trek Lexa SLX $1,379.99
The SLX is the top dog of Trek women’s aluminum road bikes. This frameset has shaped aluminum tubing to allow for stiffness where you need it, compliance where it benefits. Equals a lighter ride that is more comfortable to ride. The drivetrain is mostly Shimano 105 10-speed matched with Bontrager components. Available from 47 – 58cm. Also available in a white and grey color.
2012 Trek Lexa SL $1,209.99
The SL takes a step down on frameset to a more standard round tubing. Still a great frame design if you are riding <40 miles. Drivetrain is the new Shimano Tiagra 10-speed with Bontrager components. The bike is available in a compact double (two chainrings) and triple. I hope that you’ll find mostly the compact double at your local bike shop. Available from 47 – 56cm. Also available in a dark blue and white color. Note there is no 58cm in this model.
2012 Trek Lexa S $959.99
The same frameset as the SL with different parts. Taking a large step down to a Shimano 9-speed Sora drivetrain. This bike is a great starter, but if you really get riding you’ll start wearing out parts. Personally the plum color of this bike is my favorite of the Lexa lineup as I’ve never seen a women’s bike this color. Also available in a light carolina blue and white color. Note there is no 58cm in this model.
2012 Trek Lexa $729.99
The same frame as the SL and S but now with an aluminum fork. Drive train is 8 speed and I would recommend this for either someone looking to dabble in the sport, a teenager still growing or someone on a tight budget. If you think you’ll ride more than 2-3 times a month, take the upgrade to the Lexa S as the carbon fork and 9 speed parts will be better suited if you keep the bike for awhile. Also available in a white and mint color. Note there is no 58cm in this model.
