Announcing new addition to the family

26 lbs 3 oz, 15" Trek 7500FX yr. 2001 model. We spent the weekend bonding. Got it on sale almost half price because they really wanted to get rid of it! NOW I understand what speed and responsiveness means--wow! What a joy.

I think I need to make some adjustments though... my arms get stretched out too much leading to elbow pain... are there choices in handle bars for this type of bike perhaps that offer different hand positions?

When I read the Titile I felt, a certain kind of Joy, I was very happy for you, but then when I read the body, , I still felt Happy for you having acquired the baby, Have a nice bonding with the newest member of your family :fun: :fun:

Don't know the bike, but would assume you might be able to get a shorter reach stem.

Enjoy your new addition!
