    Good deal?

    I have a chance to get a brand new 2011 Cannondale Trail SL2 for $700. I was wondering what everybody thought about this bike and whether or not it is a good deal. After doing a little research, it...

    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...

    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...

    At least you're getting out there to have fun and compete. Looks like you got to spend a beautiful day outside, can't ask for much more than that.

    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.

    Yes, the 35c tires will be mounted on the stock rims. My reason for swapping tires would be the same as yours as I found the ride of the 2011 7.5 FX I took for a test ride to be a little too jarring...

    The LBS that I ordered my 7.6 FX from told me I could go as big as a 38c tire but I went with a 35c to maintain speed but still have some cushion and tread.
