I just saw the silver one for the first time in person this afternoon....... i can't say i was overly impressed actually, as it seemed kind of drab.

Actually chocolate is my favorite, but I'm getting too fat.

The red on the 06 7.2FX made me think about buying it for the color. But the better components on the 7.3FX won.

yeah, i'm pretty sure they used the same red for '07 (ragered)


so you liked it that much then?
what color is your 7.3fx?

I use a 7700 FX that I bought 3-4 years ago, and it's still works great (it's black with blue accents). When I was shopping around I looked at the lower end 7200 FX, but I decided to drop the money for higher end with the XT shifters and the nice Bontrager rims.

Frankly, I think the extra money was worth it. The Bontrager rims are fabulous and almost never come off of true -- plus they look cool. The XT shifters are slick except they need tweaking every 3-4 months. Mostly it's all very low maintainance and I've never had to replace any parts.

So if I were you I'd take a look at the higher level Treks too. Of course gear gets to be diminishing returns where idiots pay $500 for pedals just to save a couple ounces. However, I thought the 7700 FX was worth it.

As a bonus, Trek bikes are nice too if you live in a urban area because bike thieves typically ignore anything with Trek frames -- especially ones that look as bet up as mine does. Speaking of being a theif target, if you do live in an urban area, it's actually an advantage to let your new pretty paint job get beat up.

I really like the 7.5fx LiveStrong bike but it's sold out except really small sizes....... $729 on sale & I would think about dropping the $$ if I could find my size.
