    Announcing new addition to the family

    26 lbs 3 oz, 15" Trek 7500FX yr. 2001 model. We spent the weekend bonding. Got it on sale almost half price because they really wanted to get rid of it! NOW I understand what speed and responsiveness means--wow! What a joy.

    I think I need to make some adjustments though... my arms get stretched out too much leading to elbow pain... are there choices in handle bars for this type of bike perhaps that offer different hand positions?

    Don't know the bike, but would assume you might be able to get a shorter reach stem.

    Enjoy your new addition!
