I posted my first thread here a few days ago. I was asking if it was okay to buy from another LBS if they carried a brand my usual store does not carry.
Long story short, I bought the bike. It is a WSD Trek 7.5 FX. I think I like it, but it has been hard to tell. I probably should have bought the 17.5 but got the 15. I rode it about 15 miles and determined that my seat was too low(causing tons of burning in my quads). I took it back to the store and they got me a REALLY long seatpost. I have not had a chance to ride it except for around the parking lot and stuff to tell if it is right. The reach feels right (which is why the one guy suggested I get this size). The seatpost probably sticks out 12-14" and looks a little strange. The other guy at the store said that he may be able to talk the manager into ordering the 17.5 for me.
I am supposed to leave for a 24 miler in about an hour or so. I want to ride it to see if it is right, but am afraid to ride it in case it is not. Based on what I have told you, would you probably take it back to the shop or keep it?
