Trek's Chelsea 8 is beauty simplified. The classic steel frame, the easy-shifting 8-speed drivetrain, the power and ease of disc brakes: it all adds up to a bike that can handle the rigors of the city, yet has not forgotten its country manners. Commute through the urban jungle, take it on suburban jaunts, ride it over hill and dale in the farmland, its upright position lets you take in the views. Wide tires on big, road-bike-sized wheels roll easily and keep their speed, and there's plenty of room for fenders and racks, if that's your thing (sold separately). It even has its own carrying handle! The Chelsea takes cycling back to its roots, where it's not about spandex and mega mileage, it's about fun, getting around in style, and the wind in your hair.
