    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
