Just bought a new Trek FX1 disc...

So...after a three year hiatus from cycling due to getting married again and moving into an apartment, and suffering from serious withdrawals, I decided the time was right to take the plunge again and get another bike. The current situation with the Corona virus has created an environment where COVID 19 has many spending time away from work and wanting to get out and exercise because all the gyms are closed. This has made bicycle sales skyrocket where I live and I realized that if I was going to get a bike I'd better jump on something before they were all gone. I had my sights set on two bikes, the Specialized Sirrus X 2.0 and the Trek FX2 disc. Due to the incredible demand for bikes around here there were none of these left in my size, but there was a couple Trek FX1 discs left at one of my favorite LBS's and I decided to get one of them. The frame is identical to the FX2 but the components are mostly entry level, so I will gradually upgrade some of the more important items over time. I've already changed the grips to Ergon GP2's and pedals from the crappy stock ones to Shimano PD-T421's which are a dual sided SPD pedal, I still have the bike shoes with the clips to wear with these, I always knew I would be back on a bike eventually and kept all my bike gear.
So I am back on a bike and back on Bike Forums, let the fun and enjoyment begin!!

cheers,

Lorne Miller

Congrats on the new bike. A good friend recently purchased an FX4, loves it! The other day, while out on the local mup, met a young man with a new FX2--he was very pleased with his bike and was riding along with us (at a safe distance) while we were on our road bikes-weren't flying, but keeping a good pace, and he was right there. Seem to be nice bikes.
