I thought I'd advance up slowly, from my current Trek 730 to a new Trek fitness bike, before getting a road bike. So, I would like to focus on the Trek 7.7 FX and the Trek 7.9 FX models [for 2007].
I haven't seen much comment about these two bikes in the last 12 months of messages, but I did come across the following thread via google search, which provided a good argument for the 7.7 FX:

My generic question: Do any of you have personal knowledge of these two bikes, and have preferences between these two bikes?
My specific question: Would the carbon frame of the 7.9 FX be strong enough for primarily metropark rides and occasional off-road rides?
Lastly, how do you do a search function? I tried doing a search for "7.7" and for "7.9" and nothing was found by the search. How do I "Search The Forums" for the Trek 7.7 FX or the Trek 7.9 FX?
