Forget the car, idling in traffic, high parking fees and soaring gas prices, Trek's District IGH takes 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. Three speeds from the internally-geared rear hub give you plenty of gears to get around town in a hurry and with little to no maintenance. The District's got powerful disc brakes, a comfy retro seat and reflective, puncture-resistant tires. Ride the District for fun, ride it for fitness, ride it to work. Just ride.
I wanted to stop using my pickup for short trips, so I bought the belt drive, three speed District. With all its black components, and disk brakes, it looks modern, but with an old-school style frame. I installed a rear rack, large Bontrager shopping bags, some safety lights, and headed out shopping. I carry my security chain and padlock in the bags, and have the clerk pack the bags at the store. I find that the three speed gearing is good, even with 50 pounds in the bags.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
