    Just bought my first comfort bike--Trek Navigator 2.0

    Yep, just got an old man's bike, but it sure is comfortable. I have only ridden it around the block once, but tomorrow will take it on about a ten-mile journey. So far the gears are not as smooth as they should be, but that's because the components are junk anyway, so that's expected. But once in the right gear and running smoothly, it's really easy to ride and relax.

    Cool bike.
    I'm two-tired to ride today.

    Careful, some of us have ridden metric centuries on Navigators. I'd hardly describe the componentry as "junk."

    Not junk, really, but not what I was used to on some nicer bikes.

    Of course, this bike is so comfortable that I might be tempted to ride longer and more often, which I'm hoping is the case.

    I'll get pics up ASAP.

    When my wife and I started riding almost 3 years ago, that's the bike we started with. It's a good starter bike, have fun.

    I'm actually going the opposite way, really, from more serious riding to recreational. I had a faster road bike for commuting, but wasn't enjoying it nearly as much. Plus, now both my kids can ride (my youngest just got the hang of it) and I want to ride with them more, so I got rid of the road bike and went to the Navigator.

    It's like going from a cramped sports car (which is cool) to a mellow truck or something.

    I'm going on my first real ride today. We'll see how it handles the hills and trails.

    Pics to follow.

    Started with a Trek 7200. Put 7,000 miles on that sucker. Be careful, you might end up riding farther than you thought.
    14,000 miles and rolling...

    Maybe the compnonts aren't as carpy as you think. New bikes take time to settle, cables and such. I had Sora components on a roadie that worked far better than a friend's Ultegra...cause I adjusted it properly

    He had tt adjusted at the shop and it sucked. They told him to buy DA cause it shifted better. I adjusted it for him, years with no problems after that. It's all a scam!

    I'm sorta familiar with these. ALmost was my first "nice" bike.
    I ended up with a Trek 7200 and 6 months later purchased a 7.3FX.

    Now I gotta sell the 7200!

    Don't be in a hurry to sell your 7200. You might find out it's quite comfortable compared to the FX.
