    Interesting!
    I'm also 5'6'', wth "normal" proportions and I went for a 17.5" 7.4FX. To me the 15.5 frame felt as if I was too "scrunched up." The LBS owner, same height as me, also rides a 17.5", and like he said, something like a 16.5" frame would likely be perfect!

    Been thinking about purchasing a 7.2FX myself after reading all of the positive reviews here on the forum. The LBS has an '12 model on sale for $480 (in Navy blue). With the upcoming "Trek Fest" sale was hoping to get a good deal at one of the participating shops near my work. What would be everyone's opinion on what price would be a good bargain? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Those look like they're ERGON GP5's bar ends. I just picked up a set of GS3's myself and they are great!

    There is a lot to love about this bike. I'm really having a great time on my rides. Just had a 15 mile ride tonight. I am looking at adding some bar ends soon though, the lack of hand positions really comes out after about 10 miles. I have asked this question in another thread but has anyone had any experience on touring with this bicycle? I want to try it out this summer.

    I will be touring on my 7.2. I currently do long commutes with panniers and I have no reason to doubt its capabilities. For example, the other day was a 60 mile round trip commute to work. With bar ends I had enough hand positions to stay comfortable and my panniers were stable. I also have a Burley Nomad trailer for more gear. Heck, if I can tour on a MTB, I certainly can tour on this.

    One of the hills on my commute is steep and long. I used to dread it on my mountain bike, even with its gearing. With a pretty loaded pannier and me in my early spring condition, I had no issues and was very happy with its climbing ability.

    That is great to hear! I'm looking forward to some touring this summer. A 60 mile round trip is definitely a long commute. How long does that take to you to get to work then? Do you do this every work day?

    No, not every day. I try to ride a few days per week. Some days its one direction with my wife taking me the other and some days round trip. With a 10 hour work day added in, it's a lot of time and I'm no spring chicken. HA! It takes me about 2 hrs 15 min each way (30 mi). It's moderately hilly, very "country-like" and quite enjoyable! I ride south in the morning and north at night. Always into the wind it seems. LOL

    Bare bones bar ends. Work perfectly and wallet friendly.

    So I pulled the trigger and ordered the 7.2 (matte black) for $485...I think I got a decent deal. They said I get free adjustments for 1 year, I'm hoping that means a standard tune-up and not something watered-down. Also, I have a really stupid question. Does the bike come with a kick-stand or am I going to have to buy one separate? Can't wait to get my new bike!

    Probably have to buy the kick-stand, unless they will throw one in on the deal. $485 isn't bad at all. Enjoy your bike! I'm taking mine out for a 41 mile organized ride on Sunday morning. I can't wait.

    you're going to have to spring for a kick stand. Trek doesn't include one in the box. Maybe the LBS can throw one in for you. They can eat 15 bucks for your continued business. Congrats on the purchase!

    Mine came with a kickstand. I never even asked about it because I assumed it would have one. Its a cheap one though, so watch your loaded bike. I certainly like it after not having one on my other bike.
