    We were confused because we don't call 'em grips. The grips are the rubber handlebar padding only. The handlebar extensions, or bar ends will slide onto your handlebars no problem as long as there is room to slide your controls and grips in enough to make room. Remove the mirror first and put it back when everything else is installed.

    Installed correctly, they would be more aptly called horizontal, not vertical 'grips'.

    Guess I'll toss my FX onto the pile. 7.5FX in current commuter mode.

    Man, I love red bikes and I love that bike PC placement, keep it protected in a crash better than where I have mine. I scratched the **** outta my screen crashing a couple weeks ago.

    Trek 7.5 FX - 2007. That was my template for my current custom hybrid. The frame is great! And the carbon-fork is holding-up well. Candy-Apple Red - I wish I could change the color to match my mirth and mood.

    Enjoy!

    Are those used Magura hydraulics? I had a couple mountain bikes with them back in the mid 90's. Do they still sell those new? Now that I look closer at that pic. Do you really need that mtb cassette on the back? What is that an 11-34? Seems like overkill for the street if you are moderately fit.

    thanks for the compliments The Magura's are season 2009 models with the new (far easier) setup and brake booster. I had them on my first mountain bike (in neonyellow) and love their handling, don't care about the 200-300 grams extra. Well the drivetrain is a compact and mountain cassette with medium caged derailleur. I have to ride up/down hill in my commute (Zürich can be hilly) and need the large range this system offers. Saddle has now replaced by a black and white one and the pedals are now eggbeaters.
    Tires Marathon Racers @ 35 mm. Very happy with it now

    DO NOT get a Trek 2010 lifestyle catalog! I was kinda silently thinking my next bike might be a 7.3 fx, but after looking at the catalog I'm having serious wishes for a 7.9 fx!

    Here is my Jamis Coda Sport hybrid I recently purchased. Been a great ride and I'm very happy with the purchase. I pulled the heavy suspension seatpost and cheap saddle and installed a Sette APX carbon post I had laying around and a Charge Spoon saddle. I also added Ergon grips to give me more hand positions.

    Cannondale BBU







    This is my Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra. I just picked it up last weekend and took my first long ride with it yesterday. It looks like it weighs a ton but when you ride it it feels really light and nimble. I absolutely love this bike.

    Morning John... nice to see you out and about.



    That 7.9 is a sweet assed ride save for those wheels... hasn't Trek abandoned using those for 2010 ?

    good question, I've always been told the FX's best upgrade would be wheels.

    I know Trek is abandoning paired spoke wheels due to far too many issues with them... I'd like to see what they are going to offer on the 2010 7.9 FX and cannot see them keeping them on their flagship performance hybrid.

    According to the 2010 catalog, no more paired spokes... the wheels are "Bontrager Race." They seem to be white with a HUGE "Bontrager" across them (also the tires, really detracts from the look of the bike).

    yeah but how do they function? I put a pair of panaracer ribmos on mine, no flats in two years.

    here's my FX

    Horrible photo, my apologies. Gotta get the rear brake functional, do something about that totally smooth rear tire (it rains a LOT here, I'll die) and maybe swap out the evil MTB front tire.

    other than that,

    Thanks shOOk. I kinda miss the clean lines of the base bike without all the add-ons (especially after looking at your new bike! and others on here that are lean and mean), but it's the only bike I have right now so it has to be a jack of all trades. For all the utility though it still gives me (semi)quick rides out in the country for exercise, so I'm very happy with it.

    There is nothing wrong with slicks in the rain... the tread compound is more critical for riding in the rain and colder weather.
