That black paint scheme, with white "Trek" emblazoned on it, is quite an attractive look.

Pity in Australia we don't get the disc brake option on the FX 7.2, we only get the disc version of the FX 7.4.

Does that fit ok? Cause that seat is way below the stem and its just looks like a size or two too big.

The frame already looks a small size, hard to imagine a smaller one without going to a dirt jump frame but the bar stem could be lowered some.

Latest rendition of my Felt QX75 (2009) hybrid. It used to be a flatbar (stock), then I convert to trekking bar, and now it's a dropbar hybrid.
Recent changes: Stronglight Impact Compact crankset (48/34T), Dura Ace 7700 rear derailleur and brifters, Ultegra 6500 cassette, FSA Vero Compact drop bar & Cinelli gel cork tape, Kool Stop Salmon pads (need to trim the cable.. oops), Tektro's fork-crown cable stop. Really enjoying the dropbar, with more possible hand positions and more aggressive posture for faster rides.

You're right . I should have zoomed in to have a propper look. I'm using my phone.

Thanks! They're SKS P45. The P45 designates the size of the wheel and size of the tire.

This is my Trek FX 7.2 with a few upgrades. It's only been about 100km so far. Mostly trail riding, but lately I've been allured by the back countryside around my town.

Bought my '12 Raleigh Detour 4.5 at the end of April 2013. Took it out for a 50-mile ride on the Canalway trail yesterday, so I decided to finally join in on this pictures thread. I have just under 2,000 miles on this beast, still purely stock as you can tell (I recently took the bar ends and rack off), I'll upload new pics when I reattach them

Can't believe I never posted a picture in this thread. A bit dated, but here is my bike in her daily spot:


Now has fenders and the stem back to original angle (but lowered). This makes for a better photo though. Pretty far from the clean lines everyone else's bikes exhibit!
