I just ordered a new 08 Trek 7.5fx yesterday, and am anxiously waiting its arrival later this week.
I pick it up the last day of the Trek Super Sale yesterday, so I received the 12 months 0 financing.
Any way I was very concerned about the low spoke count on the wheels.
I spoke with every lbs in the area, and they all assured me that I will not have any problems, and that the wheels are very strong
The lbs where I bought my bike assured me that if there are any issues that it will be under warranty for the 1st year.
He also agreed that if I have any problems next year when they are out of warranty he would sell me a new set a cost.
I was looking for any suggestions from the group on anything I should have them do to the wheels before I pick it up.
I have read in past posts the stock tires are no good. Why?
Why are Bontrager tires not Clyde friendly?
