    Comments:

    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.

        I have lost 20 pounds in 4 months riding this bike. Love it so smooth and fast. I am now getting with mountain biking so I just purchased the 2014 x-calper 8. Both Treks are my babies now. You would not be dissapointed with the 7.2. I have taken it to different parks and use it to ride about 25 miles a day.

          This a great bike. Just getting back into recreational / fitness riding (8-10 miles 5 times a week). The shifting and braking components are exceptional and this is a very nice quality bike for the money.

          Great bike I have been commuting with it for about a month and it has been durable and fun to ride. Off rod is a little lackluster but its not a mountain bike so I'm not too concerned. No regrets would buy it again.

          Comments:

          This bike was a wedding gift from my father. At 6'2 and 250lbs, I am a large man, and I have bent too many lighter road bikes, and I tend to punish my bikes badly (bent rims, broken pedals, etc.), leading to many costly maintenance trips. There is not enough I can say about how well this bike handles, or that it can take the punishment of riding 30-60km 6 days a week without straining in any way. It handles my size and strength very well, and I have nicknamed it 'The Tank' for this reason. It also does not sacrifice speed by being more durable, as I have been able to pass/keep up with several other cyclists riding the sleeker-road-bike models. Its tires are thick enough that they can handle going off the path/street if you need to pass joggers/rollerbladers etc, which is very useful on a crowded city path. Wonderful bike, and carries my recommendation, if you're a taller/larger individual you don't get much better than this racing locomotive.

          I expect to use this more and more commuting but as for now I use it for exercise. I average 10 miles a trip or so and it's held up well to curbs, potholes, and poorly maintained sidewalks.
