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.

      Comments:

      I took sooooo many test rides before I settled on the Steel District. I wanted something in between that beach cruiser feel and a swift hybrid. The first time I hoped on this one I knew my search was over! The geometry is perfect as it puts you in an incredibly comfortable riding position and the bike just glides effortlessly. There's a reason this design is so popular in Europe. Don't let the looks fool you either (it looks insanely good) this bike is actually REALLY fast too. I now use it for weekend exercise instead of my $1500 road bike. In fact, I jumped on my road bike the other day and within 2-miles I turned around and switched bikes. The Steel District is soooo much more fun and comfortable to ride and I can still get a good sweat on. The only improvement would be the seat. I too replaced the uncomfortable seat with wide spring matching brown leather one. Sure it looks a little less 'racey' but I can ride for hours now. HIGHLY recommend.

      Comments:

      Use it primarily for short city commutes. Didn't think I need seven speeds but what the heck it makes the little rollers easy. Personally I like the disk brakes. I did replace the retro looking seat with with a comfy spring loaded brooks just because this bike looks great in honey leather. Front basket is handy and added a rear rack for bigger loads. Liked it so much that I bought another for my wife.

      Total joy to ride, a few quirks

      Comments:

      Every time I ride this bike, I smile. It's pure fun - feels like riding a bike felt in fifth grade. I use it primarily for neighborhood stuff - a quick ride to the store (2 miles), the mailboxes (1/2 mile), to ride with my kid to her elementary school (1 1/2 miles). It's ultra plush and totally silent. Downsides are the sloppiness in the assembly (I blame my LBS as much as Trek) - some bolts were loose, the brake needed to be adjusted and the grips haven't held up that well. But these are little nits - overall this thing is just pure fun.

        This bike has been the best thing ever to ride around the city in! I Am constantly getting comments on how beautiful it is. This has been great to cruise around the streets and run my everyday errands. It does not have a kickstand, but they can be found easily for less than ten dollars. The basket has proved to be very useful and is not flimsy.

          Comments:

          It has been nearly 30 years since my last bike, I was really surprised how little had changed. Sure, there is carbon fiber, but base materials are not really design, they are tech. Design is where I think bikes haven't progressed much. I am shocked that so many bikes have floppy cables everywhere and gross plastic parts. Trek did a good job with this bike in its own paradigm, but why aren't the break cables engineered into the frame (is a small hole so expensive?), why are the shifting components made out of cheap plastic? It reminds me a lot of a GM vehicle, you can buy a $60k Suburban, but it will have the same cheap feel and plastic of a Caprice. This is where bike companies fail. This bike is great for the price and against the competition, it has at least one modern component, disc breaks and an elegant design (for the category). The only off note on the design is the brass touches on the seat, which are matched by nothing on the bike. Metals, leathers, colors should match, and they mostly do by bike standards here, it is just the standards should be higher. I love the bike, especially the color. By the way, cargo capacity on the basket is 5.25L of wine, made up of 1 box and 3 bottles.

            Super groovy bike. If only it came in a non- disc version it would be perfect. Disc brakes are good, but not needed for this bike and definitely make maintenance exponentially more difficult and more frequent.

            This is my first Trek, and I was tempted to buy a road bike because they are so light. But I love how smooth this bike rides. I also love the basket with the U-Lock holder, and the bicycle is very well made. I have no issues with it!

              The bike looks great and rides just as well. Not a huge fan of mechanical disc brakes so I just replaced them. Not really a problem, just a preference. Would have been nice to come with a rear rack, but it didn't take much to get my own and put it on.

              Comments:

              So... first of all I got this bike as a trade for my 2010 Trek Soho S (single speed) matte black. I paid an additional $300 to match the value of this brand new bike. I was hesitant at first due to the poor reviews all over the web but took the risk. I couldn't find one good review about this bike but that's about to change.... First of all, I am not a speed demon, I like to enjoy riding my bike in a slow steady pace with an upright posture enjoying the scenery around me on a daily basis on my way to work... I call this Mindful Biking... No need to rush or hurry on this thing because it glides very nicely, seamless gear shifting and even with the handle bar being a bit wide, I can turn a tight 90 degree angle on a side walk and not have to put my foot down on the ground. But if i need it to be nimble and fast, I can get it to go... then again, this is not my riding style. I commute about a mile to work with moderate hills. The best part about this bike is the beauty of just simply looking at it, I love the vintage look and enjoy the modern components this bike has to offer. Mind you, I am very picky with my bikes and have an eye for quality but don't want to pay top dollar for it. We are after all in this economy of saving our money and living simply... Let's just say, champagne taste with a beer budget! Lol About the finish, I read the previous review and was worried about the paint, but low and behold, the paint is as nice as it looks online, didn't see any imperfections or flaws in the frame. I ran my fingers on the paint finish and didn't feel any bumps or imperfections. This bike is pretty sleek and smooth. So this is my short review of this bike, there is really not much to say about it because it is pretty straightforward and the feature decription of this bike is true. If you enjoy the vintage look but don't want to mess with old components breaking on you, this is the bike for you. If you like to cruise at a moderate speed with a comfortable upright riding position, this bike is for you. Happy riding!!!
