I need help with a stolen bike!!

Hello everybody, my trek 7.2 FX was stolen today and i dont think im going to be getting it back, so i am preparing to replace it with something else. if everyone could give me a suggestion on a sub 600 dollar hybrid or road bike it would be greatly apreciated. ive found a couple of nice giant ocr-3 (??) on craigslist but any other suggestions are welcome. Or even better yet if youve seen a ruby red trek 7.2 with schwinn saddle and cyclocomputer around apu/citrus in azusa please inform, thankyou

Sorry about the theft of your bike. I hope it turns up or that, if it doesn't, it behaves erratically when whowever stole it tries to ride it. I test-rode both a 2008 Trek 7.2 FX and a 2008 Specialized Sirrus (less than $600 new) and ended up buying the Sirrus because I preferred the geometry. Have you looked for another Trek 7.2?

Sorry about your bike. Man, bike thieves are the lowest of the low. I have a 7.2FX myself (which replaced a stolen bike), although it plays second fiddle these days and almost never gets ridden. If I wasn't on the opposite coast, I would even sell it to you for cheap.

+1 On the Bike thieves the only thing equally as low is a horse thief.

Nope. Horse thief is a little lower - they can be hung. All a bike thief gets is a slap on the wrist because the DA/Judge do not take bike theft as seriously as horse theft.
