    Young woman just upgraded to Trek FX 7.2, San Jose, California

    Hello all.

    I just upgraded to a new "unisex" Trek 7.2 FX a week ago, after using a dept store mountain bike for several months (a gift that was a little small for me).

    Even though this is my first time posting, I read several posts in this forum while deciding which bike to buy. I still have lots of questions and will be posting in the forum.

    I use my bike to commute every day to work (less than two miles a day) but I would like to use it in paved trails on the weekends.

    Nice to meet you all.

    Welcome to the forum, and to the Trek FX family!

    You'll like your new bike. I've only had my FX for 6 weeks, but I've racked up more than 400 miles on it and I'm totally hooked. I'm sure you will be as well.

    Welcome to Bike Forum and congrats on the new bike. I really enjoy the trail riding that you describe on the weekends. Best to you.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    Not to discourage you, but do you need a front suspension and fatter tyres that come with the DS? If you ride mostly on paved roads and trails, the suspension-less FX can handle it pretty well. I compared an 8.4 DS and a 7.5 FX on some badly-paved roads (i.e. potholes, tree roots, etc) and decided to get the FX. Just my 2 cents.

    I tried one 8.x in the store. I got the feeling that is more like a mountain bike, more like the one I had before. Where are you planning to use it?

    I do a lot of paved roads. the local rail trails and I also want the ability to ride it on the dirt roads with rocks of my neighbors tree farm...just to mix it up a little bit.
    I am now gonna go research the fx series....thanks gang.
    I'm also a bigger guy...I need a comfortable ride.

    I'm truthfully scared as **** about the skinny tires...flashbacks of riding a 10 speed from many many years ago.
