    It looks kind of cool with the camo paint and the racks, etc. But is it really worth an extra $1000 to get a drop bar 8.5 DS?...........AND you lose the suspension fork????

    Anyone have thoughts on how much of a difference on road vs. hybrid comes into play here? You're stretched more on a road bike with more weight on shoulders/hands compared to the upright sitting...

    Yeah, even the Bontrager bar was pretty $$$$$ as well. I guess that's what sunk it. Not many people with $500 bikes will put out $200 for a handlebar. Too bad they couldn't come up with something...

    I just noticed today that the 7.4 FX for 2016 will have a color of "firebrand", which seems to be some sort of sweet orange. I was actually at my lbs and pondering the 2015 7.4 disc grey color. It...

    This is not too bad of a setup, in light of the carbon trekking bar being so hard to find. I'm curious why you went with the salsa bend 2, couldn't the bar ends work on a stock 8.6 DS handlebar? Any...

    I wish you well in your search. Not to discourage you but I have exhausted my search after checking with shops all up and down the eastern seaboard. Perhaps you'll have better luck on the west coast.

    I was wondering if anyone has used their DS to do a MS150 type ride? I was curious how it performed doing 70-100 miles. Is it better to lock out the fork for the road? Do you still feel the fork bob...

    So you're saying the matte black shows more grease than the crystal white? How is that possible?

    Have you considered the trek 520 disc? It's a great tourer...but also a fun kick-around bike. Shouldn't every true cyclist own a 520 at some time in their life?

    My vote is purely on style:

    The crystal white is a gorgeous color on the regular 7.4, the disc version only comes in battleship grey. Go with the white!

    My two cents? as a newbie, I think you'd feel the better comfort on the Secteur than you'd feel the better components on the Madone.

    I'll second the request for pics. Think the red will really pop on this bike. You might also consider the red striped tires like they had on the 7.5 FX a few years back, those looked sweet with a...
