Trek District - On Test
Most of the bikes I own are quite understated aesthetically. Which makes my affection for the District a bit of an oddity to me.
Seriously, look at all that orange. I love it, but I feel like I should be all grouchy about it.
Hiding under that natty pants guard is a Gates Caron Belt Drive. The future of commuter bicycle drivetrains? Too soon to tell, but the lack of mess and maintance is nothing to complain about.
Looking for more info? Trek's website is the place to be with spec's, MSRP, and info about their impressive urban lineup, including the Eco Design, Portland, Allant, valencia, PDX, Soho, and District lines.
