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).
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).
