In market for a new bike..

I’m looking to buy a new trek before ragbrai starts I’m looking into getting either a 1.1 or 1.2…what’s the difference between the 2 outside of 200.00..Getting my wife a less next week

The 1.1 comes with Shimano Claris which is an 8 speed running gear. The 1.2 comes with the Shimano Sora which is a 9 speed running gear. The Sora may have a better low gear for hill climbing. Either bike will work. If you can spring for the extra $200 I would get the 1.2 Some of the other components may be better also. I rode RAGBRAI on a bike with the Sora last year and it worked out well. Good Luck with whatever you do and have a great ride.
