    My First "Big Boy Bike!"

    Well, I broke down after two years of riding a hybrid hand-me-down and picked up a new commuting/short range touring bike. It's a 2012 Trek Lane. I love it. Sorry for the wires in the background; only place I could get a good shot of it for now. :> Future upgrades planned into toe straps (off the old bike), new rack, etc. Already have lights mounted on it. Everything else is stock for now.

    nice!

    before i got the Nashbar steel CX, i was looking at the Lane. looked good on paper.

    unfortunately the local Trek dealer told me i was nuts for wanting steel and that he didn't feel like ordering it until he had a larger order to put in. ah well.

    ENJOY! and please torture me with a review.

    Beautiful bike. I looked very hard at the Trek Lane myself. I love the understated paint job.

    What a bizarre thing to say. Did he give you any great insight as to why you shouldn't own steel?
    My name is a thread killing word.

    sorry for the highjack, but yes, he was quite adamant that no one rides steel anymore. he had never heard of the Lane and when i showed it to him in the dealer book he laughed and said what i really wanted was a full-suspension MTB, which he just happened to have right over here...

    i shook hands, smiled and left.
