For $200, you definitely won't get much bike. I'd say you need to up your budget to at least $500 to end up with something that will be of substantial quality.

I'm sure it'll grow on me, but you can't tell from the pic that it's actually a glossy, metallic finish. From the Trek website, the black and orange would have been a matte finish.

+1

The DS series compares more to the Roam XR1 than the 7.6 FX. I guess it all comes down to just how rough the terrain is where you'll be riding.

I agree with this. I'd ride that bike as it is until you have your frame completed. Then start building the new bike the way you want it.
