Trek FX 7.x vs. Felt X:City D
I have been trolling Craigslist for too long now in search of a decent enough second commuter. I use my BD road bike now, but would like the rain/trail option.
I stopped by the LBS yesterday and was pleasantly surprised by the 2009 Felt X:City D
. Whatever I get was going to be converted immediately to a drop bar 1x8/9, so this looks like a great fit. The FX 7.1 is only a 7 speed, but I would slap a 9 speed cassette on there anyway.
The Felt weighs in at a hair over 25 lbs, which isn't bad. Trek does not list weights. I am used to riding ~20 lb bikes, but figure I'm not racing - as long as it is tight and solid I'll be happy. Both rigs are $399.
Any Felt owners? I know there FX owners out there. I would go for the Fuji Absolute Disc, but that's a little outside of my price range.
