    trek nav query

    only have 1 bike. its a raleigh peak. ya its old but full deore XT parts. great shape too except i need new rims. hubs are fine. i only use it on bike paths. no amount of positive thinking will change the frame geometry or easily raise the flat handlebar. i really want a trek navigator 1.0 don't need more than 7 speeds. don't want any suspension. don't want a suspension seat. i can get a 21" 1.0 for $320 now. any other bikes/models i should look at in the <350 range?

    your FX is very similar to my peak. i plan on keeping my peak but don't plan on riding it. might get a few bucks if i sold it but that is down the road. i got a set of decent used wheels and replaced my rear wheel. so now my bike is cobbled up. am looking at 1.0 only due to price. is 2.0 or 3.0 better for my needs? all have same frame geometry.

    If price is not a subject, the 3.0 has better components and it has trigger shifters as oppose to grip shift on the 2.0.

    why do you have a newer FX and now want a nav? different biking needs i suppose. thought the FX was a good bike for urban treks and cruising the bike paths?

    Correct, i can't tolerate the jolts from uneven pavement much longer,i am giving up speed and sportiness of the FX for a laid back riding style of the Navigator, the bike shops have raised the MSRP over about $100,that's what keeping me from buying one right now.
