Hey everyone, just found this site last night while doing some research for the 08 7.3 FXs from Trek. Seems like an amazing site with a load of helpful people.
Anyways, I used to ride quite a bit when I was younger. Even though I almost always had a mountain bike, I never really needed one to be honest. Now my Junior year at PSU is coming up and I'm going to need some decent transport for the commute from the apartments to campus. I was orig. going to get a Suzuki Burgman 400 scooter, but the price is a little steep for right now.
From the research I've done thus far, looks like I'm going to end up with an 08 Trek 7.3 FX. My local bike shop has a sale going on this weekend, which would bring the price to $499 ($50 off their price). I really don't need a mountain bike, and the hybrid type seems like the kind that would fit me. I don't need gears, but I'm sure I'd be kicking myself if I didn't get something with gears in it.
Any hints/tips you guys/gals could throw out at me would be much appreciated.
