    4300 Update

    Went down to the lbs this a.m. and dropped off my Specialized Crossroads for their tent sale, I think it's in May. Got tired of walking around it every time I went to the head. Still riding the 7.5FX on the trainer but warmer weather, rain and wind are putting an end to this snow pack; snowed this a.m. though

    He said he should have the 4300 in Thurs or Fri so I'll pay off the balance Friday and hopefully have my grocery getter next week; already saw some brave souls at the Post Office yesterday with their MT bikes while I dropped off my taxes, always on Fools Day.

    I also got one of these: http://store.trekbikes.com/jump.jsp?...&bShopOnline=0
    I hope the link posts right, it's a long one, it's the trek trunk that has roll down panniers, I chose them for the 4300 (grocery getter) as opposed to just the real grocery getters, just thought they were just more flexible. I took the trek rack off the FX, decided I just wanted to use it as a mileage bike, trying to keep it pure lol.

    I haven't decided on lights for the FX though, darn expensive stuff, although I would like something efficient, lightweight and powerfull (expensive.....ugh) I think I'll use the lights I had on the Crossroads for the 4300, nothing too fancy. Don't ask me what they are, they're in the storage area and I haven't yanked them out for this season to decide what to do with them as yet.

    Now I'll have to spend any 'mad money' I can scrounge to deck out the 4300 with, yes, it's own air pump, saddle bag with tube, levers and patches, etc. etc.

    Nope, it never ends

    You will like the 4300. My son, at 6' 4" and 250LBS, rides one and it has been a very good bike.

    That's the second good report I've heard of it. I did some research online, I'm not gonna jump any stumps or climb any rocks. Just a run around town grocery getter, and maybe a little woodsin'.

    I can't wait till I get the 7.5 FX on the road. I hope I'm not expecting too much, but I'm quite sure it'll be a lot more agile and faster than my Crossroads. Miles........
