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

There are three comfort zones or places your body touches a bicycle. As long as you can bear the weight of your body okay between those three places without numbness, pain or pinching then you can ride all day long.
Today we will be touching upon the saddle. This is also the hardest thing to explain or go super indepth about in only one article. Think of this as the first of many thoughts on saddles or reviews. Please read through and email about specific questions you have about saddles to continue the discussion.
In 2009 Bontrager released their first ever cycling shoe line. After teaming up with Esoles in order to get thousands of foot scans. The result was a well fit shoe, with replaceable arch support and a bargain compared to other shoes. The line was very in depth with women, men and triathlon shoes. (Personally, I have two pairs and I love them!)
For 2010 they are going even deeper with the line and adding more color. The women are staying pretty subtle but the mens line have a lot of orange through out.
