The bike looks fab and rides well... so maybe I'm just getting bent up over brand names. It was only $400 and I'm a poor college student just really getting into biking, perhaps I'll just tell myself this was a good starter.

    Edit: I've had it for a month with no probs other than the breaks needing to be readjusted and the rack needing to be tightened a bit. Hmmm not gonna let this bother me too much - since I do love the bike and it came with the fenders/rack.

    I'm really happy with everything else the way it is for now. Hopefully I don't start lusting after another bike for a long time, my bank account is suffering as it is!

    I've looked at a few Nishikis at Dicks and they seem like nice bikes with good components for the price. Besides, if it rides nice and you like it who cares what brand it is.

    And when it comes down to it, most every bike on the market comes from the same two or three factories in China. It's just a matter of the mix of components, and branding.

    Trek 613 Road to Hybrid

    Converted road bars to 100mm risers. Kalloy riser stem. Suntour thumb shifters and Tektro brakes. All new cables. This is much easier on my neck and back.
    I think my 85 Lotus Classique is up next for this type conversion. Perhaps not quite a Hybrid in the strictest sense, but this works for me!

    Nice work. By the way there is no strict definition of a hybrid so your bike fits neatly in our sub-forum.

    I'm pretty happy with my Black Ops platforms. I grew up riding with platform pedals and didn't like the "stock" pedals on my Utopia. The Black Ops are great for gripping your shoes. They're also great for banging the crap out of your shins.

    It looks like it should be a good replacment for my schwinn xs pedals. ( alloy, non sealed, screw in pins. )

    I'll find out later this week... my horn came in, but the pedals are on another odrer... ( differnt wholesaler )

    Picked this up off craiglist yesterday for $275:

    20130506_191018.jpg


    I think it's a 2013 (haven't seen too many 7.2fx's with the white seat and red pedals). Never ridden and completely perfect - I feel quite lucky to have gotten such a deal.
    I'm Jesse by the way, new to the forums and semi-new to cycling.

    Barring major damage somewhere to that bike....you got an absolute STEAL for that bike at that price! Congrats.

    P.S. Come to think of it, that price off Craigslist might be literally a steal.

    Haha! The seller had come cross two treks at an estate sale and picked them up for cheap - listing was at 300 bucks and we settled on 275.

    That seat came on my 2013 7.2 FX. Red pedals were stock as well. That is a great deal.

    I've found many, but you have to check from your phone like every hour. The good deals are gone that quick, to many people flipping bikes now.. If you watch your local CL for about a month, you will start to spot the reseller's...
