Who say’s the District is only good in nice weather. Here is a short clip of one of our forum members out in the elements!
There is no doubt that the original District is one of the best looking bikes, but some lamented that it didn’t have the flexibility of the SoHo. With a little work Mirko from Germany was able to achieve the best of both worlds. Here’s his comments.
Finally I got the District running smooth with the Alfine Hub. Now the District is nearly perfect for my needs. I was riding the bikeway from Dresden to Hamburg ( 750 km ) with carrier and about 15kg extra weight on the bike. I also changed the orange rims with Mavic CXP33 and some DT Revolution. After these modifications I was prepared for the bikeway along the river “Elbe” and the District showed that it can be also a comfortable trekking bike. Unfortunately the new rims changed the bike soul. So I decided to put some reflective orange sticker from german roadsigns on the rims and was amazed how the look changed to something special. Now my district is much more effective for my riding territory in Dresden and with a weight of 10,8kg it is still light for a bike with internal gear hub. After all I think it is a good alternative to the trek soho with the great style of the district. Thanks for the “Lost Grips” post. My new grips are already on the bike. Thanks to the Trek Team for great support. Sorry for my school english Greetings from Dresden, Germany
While Trek riders like Travis Brown are riding around on sweet single speed belt drives like this XOB single speed, the rest of us are still waiting for our Trek District to ship. I dropped a line to Trek last week to get the update and according to them they didn’t have any public information to share about the delay in shippments. They did say that Trek won’t put a product on the market unless the product and the market are both ready. According to them shipments have been delayed until March, but they say that it is pretty firm at this point. While I can’t wait to get my hands on one, I have to admit I wouldn’t get a lot of riding in with all the snow anyway.
