The new Trek Belleville arrived last week. We’ve been waiting for it since we saw it last summer at Trek World.
The concept of the bike is based on the old french porteur style bikes and Trek’s ECO philosophy drove some innovative changes in the production process. The bike was designed to have significantly less environmental impact in its production, use, and “after-life”. Interesting stuff.
Dynamo lights front and rear, racks, fenders, and one-piece stem/bar make it a killer package for $600.
The Trek Atwood models are an ECO version of the FX series with a similar look to the Belleville. Those arrived today and should be built up soon.
