For $200, you definitely won't get much bike. I'd say you need to up your budget to at least $500 to end up with something that will be of substantial quality.

Not the best pic, but here's my 2012 Trek 7.6 FX that I picked up on Sunday. I added a Cateye Strada Wireless computer and swapped the original Bontrager 700 x 25c all-weather tires for a set of 700...

Well, I ended up heading back up to the LBS and they got me squared away. Turns out the brake levers needed to be moved slightly inward so that the inner clamp on the grip had more surface area to...

Replacement handlebars/grips for 2012 Trek 7.6 FX

I just picked up my new 2012 Trek 7.6 FX from the LBS and love it so far except for one thing, the handlebars. On my first ride, I decided to see how fast I could get it moving on smooth pavement and...

My LBS told me the same thing about the 2011 model having better components. I would have picked up a 2011 model if they had had it in my size since they were discounted quite heavily. I could have...

I really dig the white paint job, much better than the silver. If I hadn't gone with a 7.6, that's what I would have gotten. I can't wait for my LBS to call and tell me my bike has come in. It's so...

I'm sure it'll grow on me, but you can't tell from the pic that it's actually a glossy, metallic finish. From the Trek website, the black and orange would have been a matte finish.
