Calling all Trek 7.5 FX WSD 15" owners!

Hi All,

Would anybody with a 15" 7.5 FX WSD be willing to check something for me:

1. is there a threaded hole and screw on the underside of the seat stay bridge (the short horizontal tube just in front of the rear brake)?

2. How much space do you have between the seat stay bridge and the rear tire? How many mm? Can you fit a finger in there? (assuming you are using the tires that came on the bike)

I would appreciate the help from anybody out there who has one of these bikes. Thanks a lot!

I have a 7.3 FX and it does have the threaded hole you ask about, I don't know about the tire clearance because I switched to 700X28 tires

Yep, the hole is there and the clearance for the chain stay bridge is 12-13mm(half-inch). For the seat stay bridge it's the same. Running the stock 700 x 32C tires.
