    Comments:

    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 told the salesperson that I wanted a bike that I could ride to work in the morning and then take out on a 15 mile fitness ride after work. This bike fits that to a tee. The only problem to date (I have had the bike for two months now)was on the very first day, the front shifter indicator broke. Not a real big deal, just the little red tab that lets you now which front sprocket you are on broke lose. Shifter works fine, but on the first day!!?

        Comments:

        I was sitting on the fence for a few months about buying a bike in general. I was a runner( a few half marathons a year), but it was becoming more difficult for me to keep up that pace. During the hot humid mid Atlantic summers, running would completely drain me. Not to mention the toll I was beginning to feel in my legs. Realizing I wasn't exercising much at all, I decided to give biking a try. I did quite of bit of research into the style of bike I wanted and went to a bike shop to try out the 7.2 FX. I didn't want to spend to much on my first bike just in case I didn't care for biking. I even considered getting a bike from a department store. After trying one, I realized it was worth the few extra dollars to get something nice. I have not been disappointed. In less than 3 weeks I have already ridden over 200 miles and have enjoyed it. I do not feel drained after exercising and am actually refreshed. I would ride more if I had the time. I look forward to my rides and am motivated to exercise again. For someone looking for an alternative to running. I would strongly recommend getting this bike. The only draw back is the seat was uncomfortable at first. But the more I ride and aftere a few minor adjustments it has become less of an issue.

            To and from work and i now understand the difference between a mountain bike and a hybrid my average speed on the road has doubled you just fly along. I had all the components to upgrade to 9 speed on the rear and really was worth it as there is not such a big jump between gears when you want it just that little easier or little bit harder. I also added bar ends that have made it even more comfortable. Love this bike but still prefer to hammer through the bush on my trek 4500 MTB

              I really like this bike. It is my first bike in years, but I am quite impressed. It is fairly light weight and has a smooth ride. I know it can be changed, but the grips are a bit too gel like for my taste. My initial test drive didn't realize it, but they become slick and somewhat uncomfortable on longer rides. The gears and overall mechanical feel of the bike are amazing. I went with the 7.2 over the 7.1 for the more modern and light design.

              Ive been running 4 times a week for a while now but wanted to add biking to the mix since the running eventually starts to take its toll on your knees and stuff. I bought this Trek after owning one many years back that I liked. This is a great bike and im very hapy with it. The components are excellent, everything works smoothly, and the bike is fast. Its a quality bike all around. I feel the 7.2 model is worth the upgrades over the base model. You get a better crank, better pedals, and I believe a better derailer. The only negatives would be the uncomfortable stock seat and the fact that the bike is supposedly a hyrid but I can tell you right now that off road it would NOT work well at all! It doesnt take bumps that great on the street and really jars you if you hit a bump or whatever. Its a stiff bike and frame. Strong, but not very giving. So, IMO this is a street bike for pavement and thats it. Otherwise, I LOVE my Trek! Highly recommended for pavement or fine gravel use.

                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.
