A pop art and Japanese animé themed single speed city bike

Like many others bike manufacturers, Trek has used joint ventures with other collectives to create one-of-a-kind or limited edition creations that highlight their unique style in new ways. This time around they’ve teamed up with ARTCRANK, a bicycle-inspired poster show highlighting talented young artists. The two groups have joined forces to bring a new perspective to their District model — a single-speed city bike with a chain-less Gates Carbon Drive. In the collaboration Trek handled the design of the frame and performance issues, while Rob Angermuller at ARTCRANK tackled the pop art and Japanese animé design of the frame. Only a handful of the Trek District ARTCRANK Edition Bicycles will be built with price still TBD.
