I am curious if this is only a Trek issue. These fork models are used by other bicycle makers so unless Trek, or the other makers, have specific requirements for their brand only, I would think...

Canhead, you probably already know this but there are some really good prices on brand new 2013 Muirwoods on Ebay. They are running about 45% off list price.

Just curious, not that there is anything wrong with Trek but with so many other choices out there, why are you limiting yourself to one brand? When I look to buy a bike I try to get a good view of...

As to your question on frame size. A 17.5" frame should fit someone who is 5'8" perfectly. Not sure why it felt small to you, maybe you aren't used to riding a bike with the seatpost sticking out 5...

If you are going to be staying mainly on paved surfaces than I agree that an FX is a much better choice. I own a DS and mainly use it for bombing down dirt roads, I have a Cannondale Quick, which is...

Add another vote for the Quick Carbon 1. That is one nice looking ride. I'd be willing to bet 99% of the people would never notice added weight from the hydraulic brakes.

The bouncy seat, the high rise handlebar/bar end arrangement. Those aren't "upgrades". You have a really nice performance Hybrid that's been turned into a comfort bike.

The black flies aren't too bad here in the southern part of the state but up near Acadia, where our camp is, they will drive you nuts. As you know, you are never prepared.

The Cannondale Quick owners seem to be out numbered in these forums and that's okay with me, I don't want what everybody else has anyway. I am a huge fan of the Quicks. But, as someone else already...
