    My first commuter/hybrid purchase a couple of years now. Mailed this bike ahead of me on a military deployment and it performed without a hitch during daily commute and even for a 26 mile marathon which was partially off road. Had to replace the brake pads but that was to be expected. Execellent Bike!

    This is my first real bike, having ridden cheap ones off and on in the past. It was well worth the investment of a few more dollars! The seat is a little hard at first, but I've gotten used to it. It really moves on the paved trails around Northern Virginia, much more efficient than my wife's hybrid-comfort bike. I've taken it numerous times through DC and have had a blast riding! It's a little rough on gravel roads, though. I wouldn't spend too much time off the pavement with this one.

      I am 53 years old and I use this great bike every day. I bought it and a Verve2 for my wife. She likes the front shocks. I love the smoothness and handling of the 7.2 and it really does have the power to flatten out the hills and makes it a joy to ride. It shifts gears so easily and the brakes are great also. I really can't say anything bad about this wonderful work of art. Our bikes are 2013 models and we have over 2000 miles on them in a year!! We both have lost over 40 lbs. each and aren't stopping. We love our TREKS and I've even gotten into watching the Trek Factory Racing teams at races around the world. Long live TREK and Bontrager!!

        I bike around 22 miles a day for my commute to work and ever since I got Trek 7.2 there was no looking back . I was kinda worried initially whether it would carry me well as I'm on the heavier side.But the bike is absolutely fine with all those Seat might be a little bit uncomfortable in the beginning but will blend in after a while Loved the light weight of the bike.This is my first after very long time This is the best bike I have rode in my entire life Even though i got a non disc version the brake is absolutely a life saver as it did save my thrice already (which made me write this review) I can't think of anything that is not good about it absolutely loving it and this just made me love the whole idea of biking around

          I bought a 7.2FX a month ago, and I use this bike 2-3 times a week at 20-30 mile bike rides for fitness purposes (Up to 170 Miles so far). I find that the bike goes relatively fast, I average around 17MPH (I know my abilities are a big factor in that, but the weight seems to help, and the wider tires I don't feel are detrimental.). The bike is light. The wheel width is great on the crushed limestone trails in Wisconsin. The seat I think is fine for 20-30 miles, but any further might require an upgrade or a few breaks during the trip. I don't mind the handlebars, frequent riding beyond 40 miles would require an upgrade for more hand positions, but the handlebars that come on the bike are correct for this bikes intended purpose. The only issue I have is occasionally the vibration through the forks to the handle bars on some rough parts of the trail. But this may be the fact I have the tires near maximum pressure. Overall based on my 1 month experience, the bike is very good for its intended purpose. And if I wanted to go further (without buying a road bike), I feel it is worthy of some minor upgrades to the handle bars and seat.

              Over 800 miles now and not a problem. Comfortable seat and riding position. My back does not hurt a bit nor does my rear. Added some bar extenders which helped prevent finger numbness and gives a better riding position. Keep tire pressure up -70#s or so and it rolls well. Used it 40 miles on a very muddy C&O canal ride and it performed great. Good all around bike.

              This bike is well made and easy to ride. I have put about 150 miles on it and truly enjoy riding it. The seat is, as noted, not comfortable after more than 10-12 miles. I got around that by taking a 10-15 minute break. I have not had any problem with shifting, braking or other mechanical problems. I will say the frame is durable. I got distracted after putting this on my car rack and did not strap it in. It departed the pattern at about 70-75 MPH on I-64W one Friday afternoon. It took me a while to notice it and the back track to find it. I expected the worst but it only cost me a new seat and new pedals. No other damage.

                I picked up a True Blue 2014 7.2 FX about a month ago and can't stop riding it. It's much lighter than what I used to have and, obviously, a lot faster. I've seen some complaints about the seat from other commenters, but after about 200 miles, I can't complain.
