Product Details

2014 Trek District S

Forget the car, idling in traffic, high parking fees and soaring gas prices, Trek's District S gets you there with ease and style! This urban flyer features a spry aluminum frame and lightweight aluminum 700c wheels for easy maneuvering on tight city streets. No muss, no fuss, the District's got a simple low-maintenance one-speed drivetrain, powerful dual-pivot brakes, a comfy seat and grippy tires. The rear hub can can be run as a one-speed freewheel or you can roll fixie. Either way, it just works, day in and day out. Ride the District for fun, ride it for fitness, ride it to work. Just ride it.

    Loved my District S - Just Stolen

      Comments:

      I bought this bike b/c I fell in love with how it looked and wanted to try a single gear bike for my quick commute to work. I got just about 200 miles out if it before it got nabbed in front of my office in plain daylight. This is a fast, light and solid bike. Did I mention how awesome it looks? All that being said if you live anywhere near hills I would spend the extra money and get the 9th district witch comes with a nice set of gears. Once I've dried all the tears I'll be shelling out the $800 for a new 9th district to make the rides in my area little more comfortable + expand my rideable area.

      Comments:

      The frame and central components on this bike are stellar, but you'll want to make a few changes: the moustache handlebar will be awkward for more aggressive riders; the seat is too wide to be comfortable when biking hard and is quite heavy; the grips will also need to go as they are overly tacky and uncomfortable and wear out quickly. I didn't have the problem with a loud freewheel that others have mentioned, but make sure that the handlebar clamp is install like it is in the photo above if you ride aggressively. Fenders and a rack make for nice touches as well, but overall this is a beautiful bicycle that will surely attract attention from other cyclists, while its minimalism and lack of flashy cosmetics mean that it won't be a likely target for bike thieves. Get this bike; get the upgrades; and then get happy about the best $1000 you've ever spent.

        I added the Trek District S to my stable of bikes about 7 months ago. Do not regret my purchase one bit. This is a very fun bike to ride! Very enjoyable for tooling around the neighborhood, and errands. Rides up to 20 miles on this. You may eventually like to take off the chain guard as it does jingle on bumps (I did). I also upgraded the pedals (VP-001) and freewheel (White Ind ENO). Stock 44/17 gear is perfect. Other than that, really no need to upgrade. Crank is multi-piece aluminum, nicely machined with decent crank arms. Rims and hubs seem well build on smooth bearings. Brakes are very nice, dual pivot, strong with good modulation. Cockpit is not brand-name, but very functional, tires are great. Seat is perfect for this type of riding. Buy it, have fun!

          Comments:

          Every day short commutes light weight and quick. Freewheel is loud and noisy. Had to replace right away. Lbs told me it was not a warranty thing just poor quality parts. Handle bars are not aggressive enough to comfort oriented. Great bike just not dialed in as a rocket ship as the ad suggests.

          Great all round SS setup. Very economical. I often grab this bike and leave my Salsa and Litespeed rockets in the garage. My favorite bike ever, right up with my Trek 69er. Low price for lots of fun.

          Bought second hand and I have added a few twists; red tubes to match red spokes and red cable runs. Bike is superb and has pride of place in my fleet. I love the simplicity of it and flick between a 29" MTB and this for commute to work and weej=kend rides and the sheer ease and smoothness of ride is unbeatable. - it brings a smile to my face every tiume I ride!
