Well I rode the new bike just 4 miles today. The heat here is bad. The wife and I had an excellent ride. The 7.3 rode really nice, I must say the bike shop done an excellent job with the setup. The owner really goes thru them. The bike rides a whole lot different then my 7300. Seems stiff and the ride is quite different, I think due to how you sit the bike. Not really that upright position, but kind of laid over. Shifts really smooth and quick, brakes are really good. I ordered it in white, didnt see the rootbeer with white wheels. I really think I ordered the right bike for me, I was really intersted in the 7.5 but LBS thought the wheel set wouldnt hold me. I am happy, will try to post ome pics of it in the AM.
