    Hey there!

    HI all! Roadie from Bethesda, MD here. I feel like a newb again as its been a few years since I've ridden with any conviction. I'm looking forward to getting back into it though!

    Hello CbadRider,
    I am new to the site and actually am looking for some input on a bike I'm currently looking to buy. It's a Trek FX 7.5, and I noticed you put Trek FX Hybrid as one of your bikes. Is that the same thing? If so, how do you like it?

    I have a Trek 7500 FX that is about 6-7 years old. I love it. I haven't ridden it a whole lot since I got my road bike, though.

    I had a rack put on the back so I could add panniers. I used it to commute to work and also for longer rides of 60 miles or so. I'm in the process of getting it in shape to use for running errands around town.

    That's a good looking bike. It looks alot like the one I am thinking of buying. Considering I don't even have a bike right now, do you think that's a good bike to start out on? My intensions are to ride on the road 85 to 90 % of the time. With the small tires that come on the bike, is it even possible to go off road at all?

    I have not ridden my bike off road so I wouldn't know. I think it would be okay on bumpy roads and smooth dirt trails, but probably not for hardcore off-roading. You might ask a question in the Hybrid forum if someone has done this.

    The V brakes give clearnce for putting on fatter tires. 23 mm tires will be OK on smooth trails of hard packed dirt, but if they are gravel you would want to swap them for 32 or 35 mm tires. That feature gives a lot of flexibility in the type of riding you can do.
