New 7.2 FX Owner - Now more questions
I bought a 2010 Trek 7.2 FX after much research and with help from this forum. I love the bike. I got it at my LBS this spring when they were having spring sales and the Trek sale was going on too so I got it for $429.99. I think I got a good deal on it. The downside about going when I did was that it was super crowded and I don't know if I got a great fitting while I was there.
I am 6'3" and got the 22.5" frame.
Now that I have 100 miles on it, my biggest complaint is hand comfort. I usually take 9-11 mile rides and my hands get sore and go numb during the ride. I feel like I am putting a lot of weight on the handle bars. What can help with this?
First: I am nervous I maybe should have gotten the 25" frame.
Second: I think I need to slide the saddle back.
Third: I think I would like to get Ergon grips. The stock grips seem small to me with my big hands.
Let me know if I am on the right track or if there are any other suggestions. I am really happy I got the performance hybrid vs. a comfort style hybrid. I know I got the right bike, just not sure about the fitting.
Thanks for your help.
