Additionally, its wide sizing range (50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 63cm) makes the Portland appealing to a wider variety of commuters.
The Portland's Shimano R505 mechanical disc brakeset is ideal for road conditions due to its superior stopping power while the Portland's Alpha Black Aluminum frame makes for a light yet durable ride. The Portland's Bontrager Satellite QR fenders are particularly commuter-friendly, however, as they will protect the rider from wet roads. The Trek Portland is available in a Dark Mocha finish.
