I would like to thank those who in the past couple post who gave their comment on my search for new bike.
This whole process is new for me and a bit confusing. Especialy knowing the difference between components on differnt bikes
Can anyone give their opinion on the Dre Dew and the Trek FX regarding comfort and riding on gravel roads to doing some 100 km touring trips.
Would I be able to put 38's on the Trek, it has 32 slicks
How do the gearing compare between the 2 bikes?
I want road type gearing.
The Dr Dew is about $1100.00 Canadian and the Trek Fx is about $950.00
I am going form a mountian bike to the bybred type bike and can't get uset to those drop down bars at this time.
I was going to get the Dew Deluxe but ralized the Dr Dew had the bigger road crank set, 52/42/30
I find on my mountian bike that I spin out with my s speed gearing.
The Trek 7.5 FX dic looked good. It has holes on the front fork to put a front rack which the Dew does not have. The chain ring is Shimano M443 Octalink 48/36/26.
Being able to put on a front rack would be nice.
How does the Dr Dew 52/42/30 chain rings and the Trek 48/36/26 compare?
The Dew is Shimano DEORE (11-32, 9speed
The Trek is SRAM PG950 11-26, 9 speed
How do these compare?
Hopefully the liks below would be of some heip
