|Presenting: The least offensive bicycle ever created by humans.|
And a plastic bag recycling bin.
According to the Trek website, the Allant WSD has an abundance of 21 gears and includes the front carrier and reflective tyres. At an RRP of $599 that's a lot of gears for your dollar! It's categorised as an 'Urban Utility Bike' on the site and the copy proclaims it a reliable commuter. To me it seems like a nice blend, though I'd probably put a back rack on it to maximise carrying capacity. As Trek and Bontrager are one and the same, it would be easy to get a rack and basket for the rear - Bontrager rear racks/baskets have a special mounting specific to the brand which is why I could not put a Bontrager on the back of my Pashley. The seat looks quite cushy in person, as thick as a cruiser saddle but shaped more like a road style.
Every time I see this bicycle I think to myself, 'That's a nice looking bicycle, I wonder what it is?' before realising it's the same Trek I've seen a hundred times before. I must conclude that unless deliberately personalised, the Trek Allant is pretty but not especially memorable. This makes it a great option for those who want to get around comfortably and in some style without drawing attention to themselves. It's the bicycle equivalent of a white hatchback car: Sensible and anonymous.
