    Trek Sawyer

    Anyone already own one of these? Sawyer - Trek Bicycle

    I am picking mine up in two weeks. The whole shabang as you see it. Making it SS of course... but was wondering if any of you have had experiences with belt drives... and where can I get one?

    Eventually I'll be selling all the shifter parts since I won't need them.

    See this thread for much more Sawyer information.

    I have one set up as a 1x9. Riding it to the Wednesday night group ride in 90 minutes.

    there have been a few threads about this bike, search for titles containing "trek sawyer"

    I was thinking about doing the sane thing for a while, but it seems that the frame is an 8+ pound tank, so there's no way to make a remotely lightweight bike out of that. i ended up with a Karate Monkey instead.

    I looked at them as well but just couldn't do it. I know I would get the box and loose my mind the minute I tried to pick the thing up. I love the retro style of it but there is no way in hell I could ride an 8# frame! To each his own! I love the style but dang! I think the only way I could pull off that style would be on a Black Sheep!

    The weight is not as noticed as much on a single speed.All single speeds set up right have climbed like crazy for me. Deal with it the same way you would if you only had one gear.Lightweight wheels and tires can be felt if that's your game .
