I read about these new automatic shifting bikes in Dwell tonight. I don't know how well made Trek bikes are in the scheme of things but this new Lime seems adequate for people who just want to get around town and cause a little trouble now and then. It's a great alternative to a car, has puncture-proof tires and a seat that pops up to reveal storage space. The auto-shifting technology is by a company called Shimano and it's used on several other models including the geriatric looking Coasting Bike by Raleigh and the Suede DX by Giant which, like the Lime is in need of a metrosexual to ride it. For more information see Coasting.com.
