    2010 Trek FX Lineup: Any takers?

    Looks like Trek has gotten around to updating their website with the 2010 FX lineup. I've already seen some at the LBS and they look sharp. I'm glad I picked up an '09 7.6 and the many miles I've logged this summer have been great on it. That said though, I'll probably pick a '10 model up for my wife as an update to the old Schwinn MTB she's been riding around on.

    Overall, pretty solid updates. the SSR wheels are redesigned, 7.2 gets the nice Alpha Black frame, small increases in price on some, but some nice small decreases on the higher bikes. 2009 prices listed in parentheses for comparison. I like the white 7.7 the best, followed by the Darth-Vader-esque 7.5.

    7.1
    $439.99 ($439.99)



    Alpha White Aluminum
    Shimano M191 FD
    Shimano Acera RD
    Bontrager/Matrix 750 Wheels
    Steel Fork


    7.2
    $529.99 ($489.99)



    Alpha Black Aluminum
    Shimano M191 FD
    Shimano Alivio RD
    Bontrager/Matrix 750 Wheels
    Steel Fork

    7.3
    $639.99 ($639.99)



    Alpha Black Aluminum
    Shimano C102 FD
    Shimano Deore RD
    Bontrager Nebula Wheels
    Steel Fork

    7.5
    $919.99 ($899.99)



    Alpha Black Aluminum
    Shimano Deore FD
    Shimano Deore LX RD
    Bontrager SSR Wheels
    Carbon Fork

    7.6
    $1209.99 ($1259.99)



    Alpha Black Aluminum
    Shimano Deore FD
    Shimano Tiagra RD
    Bontrager SSR Wheels
    Carbon Fork

    7.7
    $1869.99 ($1979.99)



    Alpha Black Aluminum
    Shimano 6703 FD
    Shimano 105 RD
    Bontrager Race Wheels
    Carbon Fork

    7.9
    $2619.99 ($2749.99)



    Trek TCT Carbon
    Shimano Ultegra FD
    Shimano Ultegra RD
    Bontrager Race Wheels
    Carbon Fork

    The tension on my current paired-spoke SSR wheels is ridiculous, I'm picking up a set of the 2010 Race X Lites next month. The paired spokes do look cool though, I have to admit.

    I have an FX 7.7 on the way... It looks pretty slick...

    I got an extremely good price on my 7.7 - $300 off MSRP with everything said and done - taxes, shipping (some dealers charge the customer!), etc.

    I'm happy as hell and can't wait for the beast to arrive.

    Looks like the same 24R/20F spoke count but a different lace configuration on the Bonty Race wheelset.

    And in the same candy red paint color as last year's 7.3 frame. I wonder if for some reason they had a bunch of leftover candy red 2009 7.3 frames on hand, and used them for this year's 7.2 model?

    ^ probably but that's fine as long as they changed SOME of the components.

    That's a great deal, I managed to get $100 off my 7.6 with a bottle cage and kickstand and thought I did pretty well. Looking forward to your pics and impressions!

    Yeah man - i jumped at the price. they were even giving me the 7.9 fx for only $2300 - with everything included!!!!! I literally took like 25 minutes making my decision at the shop..... that's such a good deal even on the 7.9...

    i bought a 7.2 from another shop for $499 and it came out to about $540 or so after taxes... when i went into this shop, i just asked the price (since i already had bought mine from the other shop ) and they were giving it to me for $420 with everything included.

    What was the spoke-tension you found, frunty? Mine was off the scale on my FSA tension-meter. Which reads to about 200kgf.

    ^ I don't believe you! I need to see pictures!

    :-D ROFLMAOOOOOOOOOO

    but i agree. i think it's the best looking fx that's come out.

    after seeing the black frame/red tires scheme, i am thinking about adding some other color to my white 7.7.... im thinking blue tires......

    I really like the new color for the 7.6

    But overall I see very few material changes to the lineup.

    The prices have really gone up from the 2008 models until now. I bought a 2008 7.3 in 2008 for 569 +tax. The 7.2 is now 529. From what I know the biggest price jump happend from the 2008 to the 2009 models.

    Now that the 7.2 has the Alpha Black frame, it seems like a really nice option. Are the components on the 7.3 worth the extra money?

    Seems there have been a number of fork changes. The only spec change on the Valencia appears to be going from a "chro-moly steel" to "alloy" (aluminum alloy??) fork.
