Product Details

2014 Trek Earl

Trek's Earl is all about good old-fashioned biking fun. Or new school fun for those who commute to work, or class, or downtown. For simple, durable and convenient transportation, it boasts a sweet-riding, tough chromoly frame, nimble-handling 700c aluminum wheels and a simple one-speed drivetrain that requires no shifting and next-to-zero maintenance. You also get powerful dual-pivot brakes, a chainguard to protect your pants and a trick double top tube on the frame that can carry a U-lock (sold separately), and opens bottles, too! Other noteworthy details include a supportive Earl seat, comfy grips, platform pedals, and you even get eyelets for adding fenders and a rack for more versatility (accessories sold separately).

Features and Information

  • The Earl has a double top tube (obscured in the photo) that lets you carry your U-lock by slipping it between the tubes (locks sold separately).

    Comments:

    This is a good steel frame and fork with decent tire/fender clearance for a good price. I have the 61 and it fits like a glove with my 89 PBH (I ride a 60 cm surly LHT for reference). I wanted to get a steel SS frame with room for 32mm tires, fenders, and eyelets for a rear rack. This bike rides quite well and could probably fit my fenders and a 35 mm tire if I wanted to push it. There's not much else to add -- it's pretty basic and not flashy, which is what I was looking for in this bike. The original handlebars and seat post are steel and quite heavy. The saddle clamp is also the old style, but I replaced all of these right from the start. The brakes are also pretty cheap with low-end barrel adjusters and pads with nuts, but no biggie.

      Comments:

      I ride to school each and every day. I've had the Earl for about three weeks now and I am in love. It handles extremely well in foul weather and is a smooth ride. A surprising feature is that it is whisper quiet!
