    What model Trek is this? Do you have a shot of the whole bike showing how the fork looks in proportion to the frame, color, etc.?

    I know the specialized website makes specific mention of the Rocket Red (I think that's the name) color on some of their bikes is expected to fade over time and is not covered by any sort of...

    Hows the quality of this bike? Their website has some nice bikes at cheap prices, but I am afraid of the headaches of ordering without sitting on one and sizing it up. Did you need to do much of the...

    Nice bike!, just wish we could see it a bit closer. What size tires are you running? I was thinking that a FX with a wide tire might be a better choice for a cheap semi-cross ride than the DS series....

    I hate to say it but if you look at some of the specialized bikes or giant comax, the trek bikes are lacking a bit in the visual excitement area. I don't think the ball burnished look had the impact...

    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...
