    Lifetime adjustments? Are you kidding me? Learn to do all that yourself. Not even worth the time it takes to drive to the shop to get the freebie servicing.

    If a bike had to have the perfect fit as is from a test ride from a bike store, I would probably never own a bike. I just need a bike to be roughly my size. If slightly in between, I will opt for...

    Yikes! That is great that the dealer and Giant stepped up.

    Your post is a good reminder for us with carbon bikes to periodically look for defects. I've wiped out a couple of times on my bike but...

    Most road square taper cranksets call for 113mm wide BB but good thin something like the Shimano UN55 is pretty cheap. I'd get a compact double too and that will give you plenty of range unless you...

    I think that's a well put together bike for the money. Like that it has 700x28c instead of the 32 width most have. Even the overall weight is respectable.

    I have a Trek Valencia. Maybe not as sporting as the 7.3 but close. I have fenders on it and use it for any day riding. If I were you, keep your 7.3FX and add a full carbon flatbar road bike.

    I don't know how they compare in cost, but I would much much prefer the Cannondale Quick Speed 1 over this. I am not a CAAD cultist so that doesn't buy me any points.

    Too many impaired drivers out there. I do not bike on the road much at all. When I do, it's usually on the 25mph roads of the local parks and wearing hi-vis, with front and rear blinkers on the...

    HYBRID is a broad range of different bikes. I would say that even drop bar cyclocross bikes can be considered hybrids. They run the range from comfort bike to mountain bike to road bike.

    Not trying to pick a fight either. I am not an expert either but am mechanically inclined and have learned a lot the past few years.

    Not to belabor the point, but aside from plasticy feel of shifting with the Sora, what is so inferior about them?

    As for cable stretch, you just may have to adjust the derailleurs for cable...

    Different bikes, different drivetrains. Come back when you upgrade your Sora shifters with Microshift.

    Shifters make more of a difference in shifting smoothness and speed. More than likely, the bikes you tested had midling shifters. Once you get to R780 or Deore XT or better shifters, you will...

    I tried Bontrager AW+ 700x25 a few years ago. Hated them. Scary in wet and had two flats in short order. Retired them early.

    Do Gatorskins run small like Conti GP 4 Seasons? That could make a big difference. My GP 4 Seasons 700x28 look like 700x25 and I wouldn't want to go smaller.

    I would try inverting your stem and getting long bar ends pointed directly forward. That is what I do on my flatbar road bike.

    I think the 2015 7.7FX looks great. The subdued labelling are a huge plus. The only downside is the silver crankset on an otherwise black bike. I would almost have to upgrade just to change the...
