2014 Trek 9th District

There's just something about riding instead of driving. You see more, hear more, experience more. Yet, you don't have to be a city-dweller to enjoy Trek's 9th District. Its lightweight Alpha Gold aluminum frame is easy to maneuver on tight, crowded city streets as well as on country side roads. It feels almost effortless to pedal. It's got a free-wheeling drivetrain that rocks nine speeds and a chain guard, so your dress pants stay clean and neat on the ride in. Front and rear brakes let you mirror the ebb and flow of the world around you and the saddle is comfy for those longer weekend rides.

    I just picked up my 2013 9th District bike, and it looks awesome - the pictures online do not do it justice. Minimal Trek branding, so people will always be wondering: "what kind of bike is that?" The ride is also excellent: a little stiffer than the FX, but a comfy seat solved that problem. The wheelbase is shorter for the 9th District and you can feel it - very quick response but without being jerky. The grips are flimsy and I plan to use gloves for longer rides - might upgrade later.I prefer the thumb-finger configuration of the Shimano trigger (as on the FX), but for me the SRAM trigger is just a minor thing to get used to. The 9 gear cassette in the back is plenty for my purposes - especially here in FL where the steepest incline is an overpass.For those who are curious the 54 cm size weighs in at 22 pounds. That's about a pound lighter than the 7.5FX 20 inch frame (I thought the FX would come out lighter given its carbon fork). I think the lighter weight and difference in price cliched my decision. Overall, I highly recommend this bike, especially for anyone who does not need a double or triple crank. If David's World actually kept some of these in stock, I'm sure they would sell more of them. I had to "special order" mine, but it did not take long to arrive. BTW - the manager (Steve) at my LBS is great!
