07 Trek 7.5 FX good deal?
 
I was at a LBS yesterday and they have a 2007 Trek 7.5 FX NEW OLD STOCK for $650.00
I was wondering if this is that great of a deal? This would be my first "real bike" purchase and I wasn't sure if that was a good price for a year old bike?

Retail is $789.00 on the Trek website. So it's not a smoking deal but what you would expect a 2007 would be going for. Those seem to be popular these days so it might not stick around to long. Just make sure it fits.

Just paid $789 for the '08 model and feel it's worth every penny. If the $140 difference means a lot to you, then go for the '07 model, for sure.

Just a little update...
I went back to the LBS this weekend and was told to speak with the owner on Monday to see if he was willing to offer a better deal on the bike . I spoke with him over the phone this morning and he told me that he would take $625.00 cash/check or debit NO credit card for the bike!
This also includes life time maintenance & truing the wheels, etc...

I don't think I'm going to find a better deal on a new bike!
I'm going to take it for one more test ride after work and if I have no second thoughts I will be the owner of an 07 Trek FX 7.5!

I'd hit it.

That's a really good deal.

I wouldn't hesitate at buying it for that price...go for it! It's a great bike. : )

had the 7.3 for a week, and loved it, but the LBS announced a huge sale starting the 27th so i returned it and am going to see how good i can do on an 08 7.5.

nice, I'm hoping the sale will make trading up worthwile, they are asking 750 now, if they took it down to 670 i'd buy it no questions asked.

you know what else? i rode bikes alot when i was a kid, but the 7.3 made me realize how much fun it could be as an adult... especially as part of a healthy lifestyle. i was 310 pounds, diet and excercise got me down to to 30, and im hoping cycling this summer can take me to 189 if i work hard at it. i figured i'd enjoy the 7.5 even more than the 7.3 because of the fork, better wheels, andbetter components... what do you guys think?
