      After being off a bike for 15 years this bike was the one I wish I had when I had to get off one. A smooth ride on pavement, and ease of operation make this bike a good one or the recreational or commute. I did a lot of research before getting this bike and for the money this bike was a winner all the way around. If you are looking for a bike that will make your commute, and relational ride a pleasure the FX 7.2 is a great choice. There are a number of components that may not be the very best but, the quality of the components on this bike will service you for years. Overall a good bike for the money!

        I bought this bike after not owning one for 34 years. Raced BMX as a kid and wanted a hybrid in case i wanted to go off-roading some. So far have popped a few wheelies and at 50 either stupid or easy bike to ride, or both. But seems light-weight to me and really good qaulity for the money. Am enjoying riding againa and did not want to spend too much as first bike back. I have never owned a bike before with gears so take this part with a grain of salt, but the componenents seem good quality and shift quickly and easily. Hope this helps.

          I ride about 75 miles a week between work and school and this bike does it all for me. I traded in my early 80's Trek roadbike for the 7.2 FX and couldn't be happier. It's not as fast as my roadbike, I've gotten up to 32MPH on the FX so it's quick enough for my purposes of riding to work and trips along the lakefront. I only ride on the streets and paved biking trails, if I wanted to off road I would have purchased another bike. Longest single ride so far was about 20 miles and it was smooth the whole way. The tires are great, in Milwaukee along the Hank Aaron trail on which I ride a vagrant smashes beer bottles along the path right before Miller Park and the tires have withstood near daily rides over the broken glass. Maybe the cops will get him one day but that's not Trek's problem.

          I try to bike at least two days a week. This can be tough considering I am in college and work full time. After the harsh winter, I was a bit out of shape and was having a hard time keeping up on my Trek mountain bike. I decided to find something light weight and inexpensive. I really feel I made the best choice, I am able to keep up with my riding partner now. It's also a comfortable ride. I really love my new bike, of course I still have the mountain bike for my off road adventures.

              I am just getting back into biking, and this bike is perfect. It rides well and is quicker than I expected. It is no road bike, but I did not expect that at this price point.

                I use this bike mostly for riding in NYC and it is perfect. I upgraded from a Navigator 2.0 as I was looking for more of a fitness bike but I am definitely not a road bike type of guy. I'm a 56 year old male so I am not looking to set speed records but I still want to work hard and get fit but my ultimate goal is to have fun. This bike is light and fast and looks great too in the matte black finish. I've read many reviews that complain about the seat but I've gone 60 miles in over 4 hours and had no complaints. Seems to be a great bike for the money. When I first decided to buy bike a few years ago, I bought the Navigator because of it's comfort when I first rode it. Fairly quickly though I wished I had bought more of a hybrid first. I kept the Navigator though as a spare, you know, just in case.

                  My commute to work is just over a mile. I bought the FX 7.2 Disc as a primary means of transportation. It is plenty fast. Very smooth gearing. Breaks can stop on a dime. Great bike for commuting or getting around town. It is more road-bike than trail bike. Gets a little loose on gravel paths and there is zero suspension so I feel every bump. Overall it's a great bike.

                  Good bike for recreational fitness and exercise. Very easy to ride. Light and durable frame. Seat gets annoying after long rides (>10 miles). Front derailer had to be replaced since several adjustments did not resolve problem.
