nice, what color & size? did you test ride it first? I hope so. does it have presta valves? if so, have them show you how to inflate them. your old bike probably had common schrader valves. I change all my new bikes to schrader. it's just easier cuz it's used on virtually every motor vehicle in the world today

The only color the FX3 comes in is the matte black. 17.5 inch frame. It does have Presta valves. I will post pics once I get up to 10 posts

Congrats! My wife's very similar bike should be in tomorrow or Friday. Mine came-in last Friday. Felt like Christmas morning!

I love it, it's my fun around town bike. The disc brakes on it are awesome. It's not quite as fast as my Emonda ALR road bike but plenty fun

The matte black is the best looking color Trek makes.
