When I bought my 7.7fx I put the trek website stock Image on my fb page. This girl I know asked how I ride with the seat so high. I have no clue why they have the seat post 3ft long on stock images.
I have a buddy with the 7.7fx. He has his seatpost way up high like in the stock photo. I almost think he bought a size too small but his handlebars are way lower than the height of his seat. I think some people have long legs too.

My road bike has an 11cm drop. As long as your saddle and stem are set correctly for your body shape, it's no problem for many. It all depends on the length of your legs / hip position. Ensuring there is no hip sway and your back is straight (not hunched) many can have their bike set up in this aero position. My arms are longer than 11 centimeters so it's not as if I'm leaning down all the time. My Hybrid's drop is 7cm as I don't require such a position for my hybrid use.

Hello All,
Just joined the Forum and found the 7.7 thread. I have been riding a Trek 750 Multitrack since '95, but the lure of the 7.7 FX was too much to resist. Still have my mint 750, but with the purchase of the 7.7, I haven't been on the 750 since. The 7.7 is an absolute joy to ride. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a best of both worlds. So far the only mods to the 7.7 have been a computer, shoes, and pedals.

-Brad

I agree. I hope this doesn't offend any new 2015 owners, because I'm sure it's a rockin' bike. But I was really disappointing after I just purchased my new 2014 and then found out Trek was ready to release the 2015. Then I saw the 2015 online, and was glad I had the 2014. 2015 specs are impressive, but I really like the looks of the 2014 much better.

It looks okay. It could use some colored accents, like colored bolts, colored seat mast, remove the warning stickers, and maybe white wall tires. That Trek is the equivalent of a bland high-end corporate car (BMW/Audi/etc).

You're right. That nasty ol' Bimmer would look pretty bland without the 7.7 strapped to it

Boring mod's... but I was bored! Added bar ends, pedals and shoes, a second cage and bottle. Went with Simano MO87 shoes and Shimano Click'R T-77 Pedals. I have to say all the hype about the Click'R pedals has some merit. I really like them.

On any brand of bike I get, I want to be able to see the manufacturer's name clearly on the bike from a bit of a distance, and that is one thing I don't like about the 2015 7.7 vs the 2014 7.7.

Also don't like the look of the crank on the 2015 7.7.

the 2015 is nice but not as nice as the 2014 imo. that solid crank is like a beacon for the eyes.

33mi on my 7.7 today

Those of you with 2014 model 7.7 FX's, what is your opinion of the saddle? It's listed as a Bontrager Evoke 1, but I can't find that seat listed anywhere to get a good description.

Looks like Trek is now featuring the 2015 7.7 on their website now.

@1Treky thx for the heads up mate. i think the saddle is ok but it is on my upgrade list.

the 7.7fx is really fun in an urban setting so fast and responsive.

I hope the subtle trek lettering on the 2015 looks better in person, because I'm really not feeling it when viewing on line.

I think the 2015 7.7FX looks great. The subdued labelling are a huge plus. The only downside is the silver crankset on an otherwise black bike. I would almost have to upgrade just to change the color! Speaking of upgrade, the old aluminum framed 7.7FX had better components--R770 shifters, 105 drivetrain. Why can't Trek put those back? Hell, call it a 7.8FX if you have to.

First time I did over 40km on my Evoke 1 my "nether regions" were tingly for over two weeks. Swapped it out for a Serfas RX Performance. That being said I've now found that very minor adjustments to a saddle can really effect it's comfort. Suspect if I put it back on and played with it it'd be fine

Exactly!

I may as well share some pics of my ride, never mind the bottles not being fully in place...
Wheels could be full black, should i get them painted?

Mods:
Full Ultegra 6800 set (thought about Dura-Ace, but couldnīt justify the cost)
Shimano RS81 wheels
Michelin Pro 4 Endurance tubeless tyres
Bontrager RXL bottle cages
Trek water bottles
Bontrager Duotrap cadence and speed sensor
Bontrager Node 2.1 computer
Quad Lock phone holder

How did you mount the 2nd bottle cage?
