I'm trying to get handle on the various features of the Trek FX line. On a few of the reviews of the FX series I saw references to the gearing and controls and there seems to be a lot of opinions. Here's a quote from one forum.
I recall one writer bemoaning the Deore front deraillerur as garbage. I recall a representative at REI touting the Cannondale Quick 1 SI because it had 105's front and back. Can anyone explain from a practical standpoint the relative advantages and disadvantages?Alivio trigger shifters, Deore front deraillerur and Tiagra rear is as high as it gets for the WSD but you might not need that. The mens goes up to 7.9 and has a 105 front and rear.
