Hello from PEI Canada!

Hello all!! I just ordered a Trek 7.5 FX Disk, and am pretty excited about getting back into some 'serious' biking. This forum looks like the ultimate place to interact with other enthusiasts, looking forward to it!

Cheers!

Hello PEI FX, glad to have you join us. I think many of us would agree that this is the ultimate place to interact with other enthusiasts .

You should definitely check out the regional forum section as there is an Eastern Canada forum in there. What type of biking do you plan on doing? Road? Commuting? Mountain?

At any rate, we have a forum for almost every interest, and we're happy to have you find us.

Welcome to BF!

Thanks East Hill! We have some great scenic trails here on PEI, old rail beds converted to walking/biking trails. I used to bike a lot (city commute), and was looking for a bike that would give me a good mix between trails and city riding, so chose the 7.5 FX. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Thanks for the tip re: the regional forum, I see there a few from my area. Now all I have to do is come up with a semi-intelligent sounding name to replace "Newbie".

Hey PEI FX. Did you get your bike?
My mother was from PEI and I spend part of my summers on the Island. I'm hoping to ride the Confederation Trail tip to tip next year.
I had my road bike with me last year and rode the first North Cape Coastal Ride along the west coast of the Island. It was awesome!
What part of the Island are you from?

G'day Gypsy,

No, I haven't got the bike yet, I ordered it through a dealer from Moncton, he was told by Trek that the 2007 FX series are in high demand, so I won't see it before February/March. Oh well, I wasn't planning on any winter riding anyway!

I live in Charlottetown, about 1/4 mile from the Confederation trail. I was thinking about the tip to tip as well, perhaps late spring. There is some great scenery in PEI, looking forward to it!

Cheers!

PEI FX

Hi PEI FX, nice to have the update on the bike. Too bad you don't have it yet. Even if you weren't planning on winter riding, it's still fun to look at the bike every once in a while. Not to mention that if you did have the bike, you might be encouraged to get out there and use it. Just don't do what I did yesterday--I got off my bike to walk across a very wide ice sheet and promptly landed on my right knee. Owwww....nothing broken, just bruises.

Looks as if we have a match brewing, here (Devils/Bruins) .

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

East Hill, you should have just rode across it! You probably wouldn't have fallen and you've had fun!

PEI FX, welcome to BF!

Unlike PEI FX, who would undoubtedly be properly geared up, I had narrow little tyres on the bike. I debated with myself about going across, but at twenty feet across (and I did not mention it was uphill) it was just too much. On the other hand, I still managed to give my knee a good bang, so perhaps I should have gone for it anyway! But I still had fun. Oh yes, we're trying to encourage PEI FX, not discourage. Never mind!

Good to see you back, Tom, we missed the KOAS.
