I’m sure there are a few of these out there by now, but not many. If you have any of the new District models, by all means, take a picture, and then drop us a note! Here is one from Junior in California.
Hi, I’ve been keepin’ track of your blog for the passed month. I was ecstatic when I found it because I had been looking for more user photos of the District, but not too many people have them, most especially this white 3rd District. I went to about 6 different shops in early January 2010 and they all gave me a sale date of April 2010. I put my order in to Jax’s in Huntington Beach less than a week ago and was told at that time that Trek had bumped up the ship date to February for these bikes. I called today just for kicks and was told the bike was being pieced together. Without hesitation, except for a quick stop for a teriyaki bowl, I rolled out with my buddy to pick it up at the shop. Boy, was I in utter disbelief when I saw how pretty this thing is. I almost want to leave in a glass display case; it’s that beautiful. Upon paying for it, the salesman told me that mine is only the 3rd and last one available in all of California. So I lucked out with the size I ordered, too. I will say that one reservation I did have leading up to the purchase of the 3rd District was the gold accents on the wheels, seatpost, and stem. I was afraid the gold color would be too much akin to gold jewelry e.g. bling. It turns out that the gold accents are subdued in terms of luster and are more satin-y which is a plus for me because I didn’t want to stand out in a crowd with this gold. I’ve attached some a couple of pictures from inside my apartment only because it’s dark out. I’ll send some more in day light and provide a more more objective review. Thanks Jr.
