Congrats on the bike! I did roughly the same thing (25 year absence) and bought the FX S6. With the current Trek discount for the holiday, plus my LBS giving a small discount, the difference between the 5 and 6 was less than $100, so I went with the 6. Of course it wasnít in stock in my size so they had to order and it wonít arrive until mid June.

She is a beauty! Fenders look very nice, are they easy to install/remove?

Well done! I bought my FXS6 9 months ago, and nearly 4,000 miles later, I’m still in love with this bike. I’ve owned many high end bikes, but this one does it all, and does it very well. Enjoy!

Thanks ... they seemed easy to install but I had the Trek Store employees do it while I was there. Only thing they did out of the box was to retrofit the rear light on the fender since they didnít have the newer ones nes with the mount for the light already installed.
