In endurance terms, Trek has nailed it with the Silque. It’s smooth, stable, good-looking and built for a comfortable ride. The manufacturer may shy away from calling it an endurance machine, and you definitely don’t need to ride long miles to appreciate its charms. Indeed, it's versatile and you can ride it with confidence in races, even if you can't get as low as on a race-specific machine. Despite testing it coming from a background of familiarity with racing models, after changing the saddle and lowering the bars significantly, we enjoyed every mile on the Silque and would gladly keep riding it for many more.
