New Trek 7.2FX Disc Owner here...
I just picked up a brand new Trek 7.2FX Disc last week. I had been riding my Trek 520 touring bike as a commuter, but wanted to get something with disc brakes. I did some research and settled on the 7.2FX Disc.
I love the new bike. I am a casual rider. I try and commute to work regularly (16 miles round trip) but typically ride about 30 to 50 miles per week. I am not a performance biker, but enjoy riding.
The 7.2FX Disc is a comfortable bike. I like the upright riding position - I find it more comfortable for casual (low speed) riding and great for commuting. The bike components are decent and the disc brakes do a great job of stopping. I wanted discs for braking in wet/snowy weather. The frame is nicely constructed and it is comfortable to ride (not overly stiff or rigid).
I might eventually upgrade some of the components as they wear out to nicer quality ones, but for now I'll just keep riding my new bike as much as possible.
