Cool I want to see your Trek DS! (Especially if you have made changes!)

Hi everybody,

I am rather new here, I initially joined the forum 10 days ago because of the ongoing Trek - SR Suntour recall. I was hoping to see some pictures of the 2013 8.5ds with the new fork and hopefully a remote lock-out.

When I bought my 8.5DS in january last year I actually had a single track only 120 meters from my apartment (In Aarhus, Denmark), and was commuting 6km to work every day. Since then I have moved into the city (Copenhagen)
and my commute is almost 100% pavement, and only around 3km each way. I am thinking about getting some lighter and faster tyres.

I have seen that many have put 700x28c tyres on these bikes, but from what I understand Trek recommends a minimum of 700x35c. Should I listen to Trek or try my luck with smaller Tyres?
I will also need new pedals because the ones that came with the bike are falling apart.
Apart from fenders, lights and a kickstand my bike is stock.

If you have a Trek Dual Sport that you have done any changes to, (For road or mountain) I really would like to hear your thoughts and see some pictures!
