Need Help and Suggestions

I'm new to this forum. I've been riding a Huffy for three years. I'm thinking of getting a TREK 7200 with a 17" frame. Is it a good bike? No real long trips Max about 25 miles. I'm 5'8" and not skinny.

Kathleen,

I have an old Trek 1000 road bike that I've had a long time and put many miles on. I haven't had any trouble to speak of with it. As to the newer Treks I really can't comment but I'm sure there is someone here on the forum to give you guidance. I just purchased a new bike myself about a month ago. A Rans Tailwind recumbent. I like it so much the road bike hasn't been out of the garage since I got the 'bent. I hpe you find the guidance you need. Welcome to the forums!

7200's are awesome bikes. Good bike for the money. If you aren't looking at going anywhere over 25, and you won't be riding more than 2/3 times a week. The components will last you a long time on there!

Hope that helps
