Submitted by Ilya a Commuter

Date Reviewed: March 13, 2011

Strengths:    Dropped handlebars, superb wheels and tires

Weaknesses:    Can't officially mount a rack on it. I finagled it at my local bike shop where I bought it and though the Bontrager rack tilts a bit it works with my panniers.

Bottom Line:   
I use this bike to commute. This is mostly roads but occassionally the roads have glass, broken asphalt, etc. The bike takes everything thrown at it with ease and even goes off on trails comfortably.

Strengths:    Quick and nimble, light, versitale. At 50+ years old, the geometry of the bike is compatible to my level of flexibility.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Great all-around bike, highly reccomended. Easily switch from 26cc tires for road rides to 32cc for trails, paths, etc. On a 425 mile Erie Canal group tour, many riders were interested in the frame geometry. Benefit of a road bike without the limitations of a touring frame or hybrid.

Strengths:    Strong frame, can be fast with road tires and clip on Bars, Replaceable rear der. hangar. Great training Bike.

Weaknesses:    Sora components are heavy,Bontrager Seat gets uncomfortable after 40 Miles. Weak Matrix Aurora Rims (Have been Trued 3 times Front and Back)

Bottom Line:   
Bought the Bike because I wanted something I could do Triathlons on and use to get around the city. Worked well for that purpose. Comfortable ride even though Bike Shop sized me wrong. Good frame, can take a beating. (Hit by car once, slid on a corner once, no damage to frame)Have put 3000 miles on it.

Strengths:    Very Strong, goes off road (within reason), rugged and well built. Have gotten many complements, this is a pretty bike.

Weaknesses:    Now that Ultegra has replaced the original STI, NONE!

Bottom Line:   
Really nice bike. I have put a lot of miles on mine and really like it. I bought it to train for Mountain Biking and just fell in love with the XO/1. I also upgraded to Ultegra and have ridden as much as 50 miles at a time. Comfortable and efficient frame.

Strengths:    Versatile!! Very practical! If your not a hard core road biker, I say it's the way to go. Lighter than my mountain bike, ride my surfaces than a road bike

Weaknesses:    Shifting can be smoother.

Bottom Line:   
I wanted a road bike that I could train on and build up my endurance for mountain biking. I was looking to get a road bike but heard about there poor traction on crushed/limestone surfaces. I opted for a cyclocross for it's versatility: Swap out the tires and you can ride on just about any terrain. The bike is light and forgiving. I can ride more paths, depending on the tires, than a road bike.

Trek XO 1 bottom bracket?

I want to replace the crank on my Trek XO 1 with a Dura Ace crank, but can't find which bottom bracket spec is used on this frame. I am guessing bb86, but don't want to order anything before I can confirm that. I'll try Trek tomorrow, but thought I would check if anyone here knows today. ThanksRead More »

Bridgestone XO-1 rhymes with fun

I collected some parts, pulled others from the parts bin, and built up this XO-1 during the fall. Now I've got a couple of weeks to enjoy it before the snow flies here. What a fun bike... very agile and quick handling but able to pound across rough/dirt surfaces as well. First experience with mousta ... Read More »
