I work at Sarasota cycle and fitness in Sarasota,Fl. When a couple of our employee’s returned from Trek world in the summer of 2008 the told me of this awesome bike they had seen called the District. I had been leaning towards a Soho until I saw this bike. I ordered mine in August of 2008, it arrive May 2009. This time only gave the boy’s in the shop more time to think of how we were to customize my bike. As I’m a huge Florida Gator fan, it was natural to turn this bike into a “Gator Bike”. Here is what we added to make this a one of a kind Gator District. The cable housing was changed to Blue Jagwire, the rear brake cable is teflon coated slick cable. The Chain ring bolts, bottle cage bolts and headset bolt are blue anodized from Purely Custom. The front wheel is button laced and front and rear wheels sport blue spoke nipples. The steer tube spacer is blue carbon fiber ingraved ” Go Gators” again from the good folks at Purely custom. The tires are Bontrager Race X lite AC 700×23 blue on one side only. I also removed the chain guard and added a Trek Angel bottle cage. Thanks to the boy’s at the shop Matt, LD, Jason and the biggest thanks to Dave!
