2014 Trek Steel District

Forget the car, idling in traffic, high parking fees and soaring gas prices, Trek's Steel District can take you everywhere with ease and style! This urban flyer features a classic steel frame and lightweight aluminum road bike-sized wheels for easy maneuvering on tight city streets. The District's got a 9-speed drivetrain with plenty of gearing for the hills, powerful disc brakes, a comfy retro seat and grippy, puncture-resistant tires. Its utilitarian side comes out with a functional front basket and full fenders so a little rain doesn't dampen the party. Ride the District for fun, ride it for fitness, ride it to work. Just ride.

Beautiful bike but poor quality

        The bike is beautiful, but the quality is poor. First, the stem is not straight, nor is the handlebar. If you twist the handlebar one way it hits the top tube, but it clears it in the other direction. The handlebar has a couple of millimeters of misalignment, while the stem is not straight and is the major cause for the handlebars hitting the top tube on one direction but not the other. The paint has chips in it and you can see them under the clear coat. The water bottle cages are not aligned and one is tilted left while the other is pointing right, not centered. The fenders have paint run-on and chips as well. Overall, I'm really disappointed with this bike and Trek. Its not an expensive bike but not a cheap one either, and in either case the frame and parts should not be tweaked or mis-aligned and have paint issues that were just clear coated over instead of repainting it.

          This bike should have been perfect for me. First, I'm the opposite of a "weight weenie": I've always enjoyed mashing past jerseyed-out roadie wannabes on my trike, old-steel Raleigh M80, and even a tandem towing kids. I also love retro/classic product updates that subtly incorporate modern manufacturing and performance features. Unfortunately, that's not what happened here; instead it seems like they slapped some leather and pearlcoat on a buck-fifty martbike to appeal to the most superficial, inexperienced buyer. I actually had a sub-$200 commuter that handled better than this Trek until the handlebar came loose (and about the same thereafter). The Steel District wobbled like a dying fish on a brief test ride up and down the straight, gentle, smoothly-paved hill next to the store - giving the lie to the cliché "it's like riding a bicycle". I love disc brakes for the hilly local streets and thought it would be great to get them on a relatively lightweight, inexpensive commuter, but these compared very unfavorably to the rim brakes I'd just tested on another bike. Whether you love or hate the styling is a matter of personal taste, but some of the unpainted hardware looks like the casting/forging sprues were Dremeled off in a hobbyist's garage.
