I recently bought the Trek 2.5 WSD model after my vintage (1992 model) Trek 2300 with carbon composite frame was stolen. I was sure to wanted another Trek, and contemplated the Madone, but in the end settled for the 2.5WSD and I'm completely satified with it.

I really think the WSD geometry is excellent. A comfortable riding position (both on the hoods and drops) is easier to achieve than on a ordinary frame. For my height of 5ft5.5in, the 54cm frame needed little adjustment, other than the seat height. (The seat is also wider and ok comfortwise). I would highly recommend the WSD for women. It take a few rides to get used to the narrower and slightly more responsive steering. The aluminium frame and carbon forks give a stiffer but very light feel to the bike, and climbing feels easier than before.

However, I wasn't happy with the 50/34 set-up, (being used to the old fashioned 52/42, 7-speed cassette). But my local bike shop (excellent) swapped the 34 chainring for a 38, and this gives me a better choice of gears in the middle-range.

For leisure, fitness, charity riding, the 2.5WSD is perfect. (And she looks beautiful).
