New guy just started riding again been 20 years since old school BMX days. Anyway I hope I made the right decision I bought a Trek 7.2 FX at the closest LBS. The person I was working with was nice but didn’t really explain a lot. I also rode a Cannondale Quick 4 but it was the wrong size for me. I really liked the Quick better but it was $130 more and the bike shop guy said it wasn’t worth the extra money. I ride on concrete roads/ concrete park bike path 100 % of the time.
Anyway I got the Trek home and went out on a 20 mile ride, I was amazed how much better it was than my (Huffy mountain bike from Academy sports and outdoors) but my hands drove me crazy going numb. Same thing with my big box store bike only a week old. So I went back on Sunday the day after I bought the Trek, this time I worked with a new sales rep. He was very cool and told me that maybe the geometry of the Trek was just not a good fit for me. Long story short I rode the Cannondale again but needed the XL Quick 4. They were out of stock and said they couldn’t get anymore since the 13’s are coming out. I ended up ordering the 2013 red and black Quick 4 I hope I made the right decision.
Since I am a total newb wanted to ask ya’ll, any upgrades I need to look at soon? I know nothing of brands or levels of upgrades from one # to the next? Thanks in advance
