Cycling Weekly Verdict

It's a comfortable, laid-back sort of bike, clearly pitched at sportives and long leisure outings, but it's all very no-nonsense and brisk when pushed to it.With full rack and fender compatibility, the Lexa could easily turn its hand to most tasks, positioning it as a fabulous-value all-rounder for a one-bike owner just starting out with road riding.

For 2011, Trek has replaced its somewhat tired women's 1.2 budget road range with the more dynamically named Lexa.

The S model is second from bottom in the Lexa's four spec-level line-up, with each female-specific Lexa matching a unisex ‘1' or ‘2' model in the Trek budget racer line-up.
