    Trek 7700..............

    Hi All
    After two days of researching and comparing different brands of hybrids, I've finally decided on the Trek 7700. My LBS has one in stock and I'm going to get it tomorrow. The LBS is about 15 miles from where I live and I plan on riding it home, so it will be a real test. There are a few things I want changed(clipless pedals, suspension seat post) which the dealer will gladly do. It is a 17.5" frame. I'm 5' 10" tall and my inseam is 32" so I think it will be a perfect fit. I like the idea of being able to ride in an upright position which my MTB doesn't offer. More to come......................


    Happy pedaling

    I'm 58 and had a total knee replacement in 2002, so the ride really will be a test.

    I removed the suspension seat post on mine also. I could not get my saddle hight adjusted right. I would be good to start out, but by the time I was half way through the ride the darn thing was down. I guess 300 pounds, and suspension posts are not a good mix.

    Congrats, and make sure they get you set up before you head home; the LBS forgot to fill my friends tires. He didnít get far, and they replaced the rims front and back. They werenít messed up, but he made a stink about riding around the parking lot on almost flat tires, and to make him feel better they replaced them. They offered, not him.
