How much leaned-over in a hybrid Trek 7.2 FX?
I just bought a new Trek 7.2 FX a week ago. Even though I am a woman, I bought the standard or "unisex" bike. These were my reasons
-I am 5'6" with 31" of inseam, so I was between the standard 17.5" or the WSD 17".
-I test drove both and for me, it was almost the same.
-I read that the WSD was created for longer legs and shorter arms, and small hands. My arms are long, 22" from wrist to the shoulder, and even though my hands are femenine, my hands are almost as long as the hands of almost every man I know.
-This is a trivial one, but the teal color of the WSD was kind of ugly. I know they have a grey one, but I fell in love of the matte black.
Anyway, to commute to my work (2 miles a day), it has been fantastic. I still wonder how leaned-over I should be. At they store they told me that the bike at it is was fine for me, but that they can work in the stem if I needed it.
I am very little leaned, probably just 20 or 25 centigrades, and I have seen the FX videos and they look more leaned-over than me, but sometimes, when I ride longer distances, I wish I could go in a more upright position, that I also read it is not good for the wind. Probably I just have to get used to.
