Another entry into the growing Dutch-style bike army… The Trek Cocoa caught my eye as a particularly pretty example, with shiny black paint adorned with a just few subtle gold decals, including an old-school Trek logo.
I guess it makes sense then that it is, in fact, a women’s bike. Sorry dudes, there isn’t a men’s version.
It may look like a typical bike on the streets of Amsterdam, but it weighs a good bit less as the frame is aluminum, not steel. A 3-speed Shimano Nexus drivetrain makes it go.
We liked the classic Schwinn-style saddle.
We also dug this big chrome plate capping the upswept top tube/head tube juncture.
The skirt guard is removable if you don’t happen to wear skirts, or if you often ride a route with a vicious crosswind. $550 seems like a reasonable price.
It doesn’t end here, we’ve got a lot more coverage of Interbike 2011.
