2012 Trek 7.5 FX Price

Hello,

I'm still looking for a 2012 7.5 FX. I know they sell new for around $900 and $1,100 for disc brakes. I found one new for $800 at a LBS but didn't like the color and it was sold by the time I changed my mind (just because I can't find any). If I find a used one, what would be a fair price for a pad or disc brakes? Your thoughts please.

Thanks.

The going rate for lightly used bikes is 40-50% off MSRP. If you find one in mint condition I wouldn't hesitate to pay more than that though.

So, if I find a 2012 7.5 fx disc in mint condition, do you really think the seller will go for $550? I'm not sure about that.

I don't know what the disc version lists for but I got my used 2011 7.5FX (with V-Brakes) for $550 early this year with less than 200 miles on it. BTW, if you live in SoCal don't rule out the regular version with V-Brakes since it rains so little here.

The 7.5FX is very hard to come by in SoCal. I have 7.5FX 17.5" V brakes, that I bought earlier this year but it's small for me and I've been looking for a 20" for the past three month, none so far, disc or V brakes. Your price was good, but the disc run a bit higher, I think for about $150-200 more. I don't really need disc brakes as you said, I'm in SoCal, I just want to be prepared if I find one. I think the 7.5FX disc will sell used for about $650-700. I'll let you know when I find one.
Thanks.

I thought all 2012 Trek FX 7.5 bikes only came in one colour scheme anyways.

LBS here has new never been ridden 2012 Trek 7.5fx listed at $880. Is the upgraded trek 2014 better than the 2012 and worth the upgraded price too? Dunno. Satin grey is the color of the 2012. Thanks. Springfield Ohio.

It's very likely, that the 2012 has better componentry....................... that's one way the mfrs have maintained price points.
