Trek District S - Anyone have Pics or own one?

Hey everyone, so I'm pretty much settled on getting a 2012 Trek District S very soon for my off-season bike. I was just wondering if anyone on here owns a District S or has some pictures of it? (excluding the pictures on Trek's site)

There are tons of pictures of the District and the 9th District but the S model is nearly impossible.

So there is surprisingly little that I have been able to find online about the Trek District S (pics, reviews, videos, etc.). I bought mine about 3 weeks ago and just wanted to reignite this thread. The District S seems to be Trek's replacement to the Soho S. But I happen to think that the District S looks a bit cleaner (no "Trek" label, the tubes have been streamlined, etc.).

I use mine as a commuter and general every-day bike in Chicago, with longer rides on the weekends. It's really quick, light and nimble. I also happen to think that it looks great. I like the 44/17 ratio but may eventually switch it up to a 46/17.

Mods so far: (i) flipped the stem, (ii) swapped the saddle (the stock saddle is pretty much the only complaint I have about this bike) and (iii) replaced the stock bar with a straight 540 mm bar (originally 600 mm but I downsized). I find the chainguard to be very useful so I probably won't part with it even though the noise gets annoying on bumpy rides.

My pics are coming soon. Other Trek District S owners: let me know what other mods you have made, post pics or just say hello.
