and regret it 100%. I do not regret wanting to ride but regret the purchase I made. I bought a Trek 7.3fx not the greatest bike but figured it would serve me well to get fit so I can put some more money into a better bike a year down the road. I have had nothing but problems.
First day I get it a pin in the chain is scratched/pinched either from me riding it or was already like that and causes the rear gear to jump. Get it fixed no problem with a brand new chain. Get the bike back ride for another 1.5mins and going on a slight uphill so I switch gears and in the process the chain gets stuck in between the gears. So now the chain is wedged in between two of the front gears. I cannot get it out and will have to take it back yet again.
Now I weight overweight, 245 at about 6'1". Do you guys think my weight is causing all these problems or is the bike just cursed? I am debating right now to return the bike under the trek 30day warranty and just pick up something else from another LBS maybe something like a Kona Dew. Honestly at this point I am just nervous riding the bike in fear of not only being thrown off but that I am going to just break something else.
