Hi! My name is Gen and I'm a newbie rider from Chicago. I just recently bought a Trek 7.3fx over the weekend and I'm hoping to pick it up this Wednesday! I have a Trek 3700 which is an entry level mountain bike. Very heavy and slow. I couldn't even lift it up to place it on my bike rack. That's one of the reasons why I wanted to upgrade to a lighter bike. I'm also starting to get my son into bike riding. I'm looking forward to learning more tips from everyone on the forum!
