2013 Trek LiveStrong FX

You'll enjoy yourself, get in shape, and support a great cause, too, on Trek's sporty LiveStrong FX. This versatile machine features Trek's light Alpha Gold aluminum frame with easy-rolling 700c wheels, a combination that lets you ride further and faster with the same effort. Plus, it sports a hill-flattening 24-speed drivetrain and confidence-inspiring linear-pull brakes. And, you'll love the puncture-resistant tires that keep you pedaling worry-free. And $50 from every LiveStrong FX bike sold goes to LiveStrong's mission of improving the lives of people affected by cancer.

    First bike since 1996 (a mtb that I've been commuting and bike touring with) and what a great ride! Fast, light, and easy to control! I picked it up used in Sommerville, MA and rode it all the way back to North Station. Looking forward to adding a rack and panniers and seeing where it will take me! I did find the comments about the seat true, so plan on padded shorts or a new saddle!

    Comments:

    This bike has been great overall and has suited by commuting needs quite well. The only down side was the seat... VERY uncomfortable! I replaced the seat the bike came with for a much more comfortable high end Bontrager saddle. Quite pleased since I made the switch. Great bike and will continue to support Livestrong, since it's for a great cause. Trek bikes are by far the best!!! Thanks you

      Comments:

      This is my first Trek bike. I own two Motobecane one carbon fiber road bike and one off road bike that I have spent a lot of money on to try and convert it to the type of bike that this Trek is. This is a great bike for a great price. Trek even makes a donation to the Livestrong organization. I am a testicular cancer survivor and take every chance that I can to donate to cancer causes. The guys at my LBS went out of their way to help me. I have nerve damage from the chemo in my hands and feet so they installed bar ends and softer grips so that I can change hand positions and lessen the burning and pain. I look forward to buying my next bike from my LBS. Thanks to the guys at the shop.

        I recently replaced my circa 1996 MT850 with the Livestrong FX. wow, what a difference. Superb handling on the trails at Waterfall Glen (Darien,Il) and the braking is great! I love the color scheme and overall after 1 month of riding, no complaints.
