Gallery: Karen’s Trek Soho S

Right now, I’ve been riding my Trek Soho S mostly (for commute and recreation). It’s single-speed freewheel and has flip-flop option to ride fixed, but I’m not that hardcore (I like to coast LOL). I also have a Marin Belvedere that came with fenders and I added a rack for when I wanna use panniers. I use it for rainy days but still prefer the Trek Soho because it’s so much lighter. I’ve found I still prefer to ride with a backpack (Adidas Ren with Cateye TL LD-1100) vs panniers because I like to be able to move the bike around easier.


I usually ride to the Transit Center which is about 6 miles away, and then I catch a vanpool (which I coordinate). My favorite commute is when I telecommute, which is now 2-3 days a week :) —Karen

    Hey nice bikie, Ive ordered one of these and am waiting on delivery.
    I was wondering though is everything on that bike stock? Those pedals dont look standard.
    Also how do you find the saddle?
    They sure are stealth looking…

    Hey the pedals are the only thing on this bike that are junk…replace them straightway or you will be sorry…

    i have this bike and i absolutely loved it …i am going to have to replace the wheels because i had to choose between vehicular homicide and eating a concrete curb..since a peaceloving person i chose to hit the curb instead of the pedestrian who stepped in front of me while on the phone…but i screwed up the sidewall of my rims…I think you will need to upgrade the tires on this or put a liner in the tire to protect the tube from punctures…but other than that this Trek Soho is great!

    Hi there,
    I’m living in Paris (France) and want to experiment singlespeed. Not sure I’m able to run such bike…
    My choice is not easy. I do hesitate between Trek Soho S, Schwinn Cutter, or Specialized Langster NY.
    Please could you help me to make my choice ?
    Regards

    I’ve bought a Soho S. Very cool: fast, responsive and very lihgt (less than 10 kgs in 20″).
    Thanks for your help in the choice.
    Regards
