My experience with the Trek Transport:
Here’s some of my photos. They will show what a blast I’m having with the Trek Transport. My biggest revelation is how fun it is to ride and how easy it is to pedal.
The bottom bracket is extemely stiff and low at 11.4 inches. So it’s easy to get on and power really transfers to the ground. It takes a bit to get it going but it keeps its speed well.
Handling is truly incredible. Because it’s laterally stiff and low to the ground, it feels like a stretch limo sports car. It’s very predictable on corners and really easy to maneuver. Surprisingly, despite an aluminium frame and small tires, it is very, very comfortable. The long wheelbase seems to smooth everything out.
- there’s a lot of rattling in the back from the folding side trays and locking pin
- the stem is way too short because of the mary style bars
- the bag needs better compartments and the straps can use some improvement.
This bike is ground breaking! For $1300, it offers a really useful package in one of the most exciting arenas of cycling today. It is well conceived, well built and it simplifies the process of purchasing and riding a transport bike. It is surprisingly fun and easy to ride it can put a dent in all those car errands and convert them to bike errands.
