2014 Trek Madone 3.1

For years now, Trek's Madones have set the standard for road cycling excellence, winning everything from local group rides to the Tour de France. The 3 Series continues that hallowed lineage with a frameset that's crafted from Trek's light, stiff 300-Series OCLV carbon. An absolute dream to ride, the Madone comes spec'd with Trek's E2 tapered front end so you can slice through corners with pinpoint precision. And cornering or flying down straight roads, Trek's H2 geometry offers the ultimate blend of fine handling and top comfort with a slightly higher handlebar position. Plus, the Madone's choice components offer excellent ride quality, value and reliability, like the 20-speed Shimano drivetrain with SRAM compact crankset for easier climbing and the first-rate Bontrager controls and wheels. The Madone is versatile, too, with discreet rack and fender mounts that let you load up for commuting and off-season training rides!

    I have now owned this bike for slightly less than 3 months doen 1300 KM and overall I am in love with it. It handles great, it is comfortable and the price is amazing. The only things that really othere me are: the very uncomfortable saddle, which I had to change and the Bontrager R1 tires which don't give you any flat protection at all. Aside from that it is an amazing bike, I would definetly recommend it but be prepared to do some upgrades.

    Thanks to Tom at Redlands Cyclery for fitting me with the best cycle for what I could afford. I purchased my Trek MADONE 3.1 back in August and ride daily. Recently retired I average about 20 miles a day with an occasionally 30+ milers on the weekends. The only change was I exchanged my old seat because the new one was to hard. The ride was confortable and my back pain went away and I increased my daily riding distance. With this new machine I have steadily increased my daily distance and speed. The Madone handles great in turns and up hill speeds. The carbon frame was new to me and it beats my old Raleigh 700 by a long shot.

    Comments:

    After a 25+ year Hiatus from road biking I decided to get back on the road, and this is what best suited me. I am a Disabled Vet - too much garbarge breathed in from burn pits led to asthma and narrowed airway; moderate exertion was what the Doctor ordered and this fit the best for me. I could roll along the white lines and the 3.1 absorbed the bumps better than the 5.2 or 4.7. I have been on Trek since 1985. This is my 11th Trek bought. Price and a little risk aversion incase cycling was in my mind but not in my lungs lead me to purchase a close out from the previous year. Components - I am not a SRAM fan, on my Mtn Bike the shifters are cheap and have failed me; on this bike, I broke the Crank in under 200 miles; so a new Shimano 105 and BB as an upfront expense. The brakes are no-name "alloy" brakes, they work but do not inspire confidence, they will be replaced before summer is out or if I start climbing/decending more... I did a 40+mile ride in the first days of ownership - it was easy and quicker than expected. The seat isn't great, but it would have been much worse on an aluminum frame. Like pedals, I wonder why bikes come with seats, pick one out on your own... Not having owned a road bike in a generation brought many new surprises to me, weight and shifting were two immediate improvements. I love Shimano parts, I wish the bike were all Shimano - a little mismatching is fine to save money, but it highlighted the poor quality to go through the crank so quickly.

    I went to the 3.1 from a trek 1000, seems that there is a difference in shifting, smooth cornering, proformance. This bike handles great and is supper for having fun. I did change the seat and adjusted the handle bars up to fit me. It would be easy to make this bike go even faster by changing chain rings or sprockets but I like what I now have.

        I am currently new to the world of road biking, but I bought this bike a couple of weeks ago and could not be happier. The bike is extremely light and handles well. I expect that it will last me a long time. The crankset is very responsive. This bike is fast. The gears shift easily.

          I love this bike. It's nice and light, responsive and fast. Just needs some tuning on the gears a bit as all bikes do so will be bringing it in soon to the local [...] store. Big thanks to the staff at the [..] location too!, they're very knowledgable, experienced and so friendly.

              What can I say? When I got this bike last month I haven't stopped riding it! it's been addicitve. The Madone 3.1 is very light because of its carbon frame. The components are good, not top of the line but it is responsive. The bike is pretty fast! I like the color, gloss black/red and the price I paid for it is a steal for a Trek Carbon fiber road bike. I cant wait to ride the following day! Great bike from Trek...once again!!!

                Fantastic bike! Worth every penny. Climbing hills is a lot of fun on it and it flies on flats, drops and rollers. Very responsive. You will not be disappointed.
