    Is that why Eddy sells upper-grade bikes? I think maybe his philosophy these days would be 'buy my upper-grades, to ride up grades' lol

    Your Cannondale Bad Boy is one SWEET BIKE.. Couple of things, did the Sram X7 shifters come stock on it, I know they were using Sram components back then. My F4 had X5 I think, and it was a 2008. Also HOW did you get the paint on the frame to reflect. I might have mentioned this earlier, but your bike and a few others opened the door for me to the performance side of Hybrids. My FX is so smooth to ride, never want to stop. & a little secret, sold the Giant to help finance the MAVIC wheels.. I'm so ashamed

    I never liked those Bontrager wheels since the first day I rode it. Nothing bad to say about them, now I just have a backup set of wheels.

    Thanks for the compliments.
    The bike came standard with SRAM X7 Shifters and Rear Deraileur, plus Deore Front Deraileur. The original non-SRAM and Shimano Components all failed (snapped and broke) eg. Seat Post, seat post collar, saddle, brake levers, disc-brake callipers, pedals.
    In relation to the reflection, it is the original reflective Cannondale Camo-design seals under clear coat. Sadly I can't photograph the incredible beauty of the Dupont Paintwork on this frame, (this is a 2007 model) which appears to be "BBQ" but when the sun hits it, reflects incredible metal fleck colours of blue and red.
    I'm impressed with your bikes over the years. I remember you tested countless numbers of hybrids and MTB to get to this stage. I was a fan of your videos shot by your kids.
    Oh...and you made the right choice with the Mavic Wheels.

    Thanks, I can honestly say that what I've learned has been through trial & error. The "Hybrid Forum" and internet research, plus test riding lots of bikes. But I'm a slow learner

    DSCN0888.jpg DSCN0891.jpg Changed my rear cassette to 11-26 Sram Force, & put on a set of Bontrager 700 x 32 tires to smooth out the ride, and help handle the rough street and sidewalks.

    Depends on your exchange rate, but for me, chainreaction is the store I always compare to. Often my local bike shop is pretty close in price, so I try to balance my purchases.

    Trek 7.6 FX (2013)

    DSCN0912.jpg DSCN0919.jpg DSCN0888.jpg Personalizing my FX

    .1) Mavic Wheel Set

    .2) KOOLSTOP Brake Pads

    .3) Evoke 1 Saddle

    .4) Sram Rival Crank Set

    .5) Sram Force 10 speed rear (11-26)

    .6) Bontrager 700 x 32c Tires

    .7) Garmin Edge 500 & Cadence sensor

    .8) Cheap Plastic Wellgo Pedals

    I really am very pleased with the 7.6 FX, handles great, light weight, smooth ride, & with the 700 x 32's can still maintain speed, but wide enough to handle the rough city streets.

    Oury lock on's, a big Vetta saddle, Black Ops platforms (wellgo proly makes 'em ) ... basically made the 3 contact points, softer/wider ...




    Also installed some 42c Conti Speed rides ... fatter tires for "float", ( NOT a band-aid, for a harsh "ride" on an alu. frame ... only one thing riddes nicer than, a steel frame with a cf fork... but, ) just incase I wanna do a gravel or crushed limestome adventure ! : o)
