I was in a bike shop several weeks ago and noticed a Trek District 8 56cm retro style bike with modern components hanging from the ceiling. A pretty basic model in Copper Metalic paint. At the time I heard it talking to me but I knew I had too many already. So I passed and left it hanging. When we got home the image kept nagging at me, and I did some research on it. As we were doing a road trip this past week, I decided to stop and look at it again, kick the tires, see how it fit and ended up test riding it. Well it has a new home and found itself at home with the rest of the heard. My birthday present to myself.

Added some copper bottle cages and a cheap Bell 200 computer. It has quite a few features for the price. A few detail photos.

Sharp looking bike. I have also been thinking about this model only I haven't been able to see one in person. How is it holding up for you?
Seems to be a solid bike. Not the best components but they will do for me. I doubt that I will wear them out. It is light and nimble, a comfortable ride. the geometry suits me. This District 8 is a 2015 model, I just stumbled on to it. Might be hard to find another although the frames have carried over to 2016 with a different spec.
