Awesome. Looks at home on an all-black modern hybrid.

Here's a shot of my 2011 Giant Rapid 3 shortly after I bought it. As pictured, the upgrades are:

... I've been really putting the miles on (73 last week, 61 the week before).

Yep, that's a top bike.

Love that blacked out look!

I like the aggressive look.

Hi everyone, I'm pretty new here. Was looking at all the nice hybrids and decided to share a couple pics of mine with you all. It's a 2012 Trek 7.5 FX. Got it around March.

Thank you all for compliments. This is my favorite bike out of 6 I have. :)

Nice... I did not know they started to put Bontrager Race on 7.5...Last time I checked it was either Select or SSR...

Hmmm..and 105 cranks?

jameson85 06-18-12 03:23 PM

I changed the wheels and cranks. The stock wheels are Bontrager Approved, 24-hole wheelset and the stock crank is FSA Vero, 50/34 compact road gearing. Switched the stock cranks for Shimano 105 53/39 175mm.

And looking fantastic. BTW, what saddle is that? It looks like Fizik Antares but the writing on the nose doesn't look like Antares.

The 7.5 would be my FX.

Igo 06-18-12 06:50 PM

I really fancied myself a roadie but every minute more Igo I fancy these hybrids. Versatility is a great thing.

I really dig the white paint job, much better than the silver. If I hadn't gone with a 7.6, that's what I would have gotten. I can't wait for my LBS to call and tell me my bike has come in. It's so painful watching you all post pictures when all I can do is drool over them.

I have last years silver 7.5 and looking at yours I wish I had of waited the white with the red looks really good.

I was thinking of going with the 7.6 but I liked the look of the 7.5 and it's plenty of bike for my needs so I decided for the 7.5

I like the love the look of the white with red but I think the 2011 offered better components. I think the FX series is one of the most attractive group of bikes.

My LBS told me the same thing about the 2011 model having better components. I would have picked up a 2011 model if they had had it in my size since they were discounted quite heavily. I could have lived with silver in order to save $300.

http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=257177 This is my 2012 Marin "Lucas Valley ' out for a 60 km ride on a somewhat sunny morning.

My latest changes to the Trek 7.2 FX: I upgraded the crankset from stock to an Origin8 Trekking, with the same 48/38/28 rings, but longer 175mm arms, and it's a lot lighter and better looking than the Shimano M171. This required a shorter bottom bracket spindle than the stock 121.5mm. I went with a Shimano UN-55 110mm to keep the correct chainline.

I wrapped my trekking bars with regular synthetic cork bar tape, on top of 400mm long foam grips.

^ Looks like a sweet bike. I like the bar tape.
