Perhaps Gates had a deal and has some future plans?
There are still many belt driven bikes to choose from, so don't fret. Plus, Districts pop up on Craigslist and eBay every now and then, but if you're searching for one and see one stocked in a store...might be a good idea to pick it up sooner rather than later.
For anyone searching for a good belt compatible frame to build up, check out Speedhound.
|Love the matching stem and cranks.|
I wonder if we'll see any new belt driven bikes or belt components this coming year. I'd love to see more companies offer a dedicated belt driven fixed gear at a decent price!
Edit: According to Trek the District is being "shelved for a while." Perhaps it's not the end for these bikes.
