    Comments:

    I am 58. I wouldn't describe myself as a serious cyclist but I like to use a bike instead of a car or bus whenever possible, to save money and to keep fit. I previously had a Trek with a low stepover, which was great (am keeping it) but I realized it was quite heavy and decided a lighter bike might make riding easier for me. It has!!! I rode it home (5 miles) from the shop with the wind against me and got home quicker than I had ever done before. I have since had some of my longest rides ever on a bike (37 miles, 26 miles)and though a bit saddle sore at the end I thoroughly enjoyed them and got up hills that previously were difficult or impossible. I think that was due to the lightness of the bike and extra gears (previously only had 21). I chose this model over the 7.2 because I liked the easier to read gear display, and thought the higher spec components were worth the extra money. One thing I changed was the saddle, which I didn't think was quite my size. I swapped it for the one I'd bought previously for my old bike, and which I had been measured up for. I would recommend getting measured up to make sure that you've got the right size saddle. Having this new bike has made me want to get out and ride more often. I do find the going rough on bad roads (visit the UK for these....). I would not want to ride it on anything other than tarmac really. I definitely think it's a road bike and not suitable for off road, but I don't really want to go off road much so that suits me.

      Comments:

      This bike is used for riding distances of 10 - 40 miles in hilly Colorado. We ride several times a week and it is consistently a dependable, smooth shifting, well balanced bike. I replaced the seat before the first ride based on the reviews I read before I bought it. I am unable to ride a drop bar so the fitness bike design is perfect, comfortable and responsive.

      Comments:

      I love my Trek FX 7.3, I use it for everything from commuting to riding on paths and trails on the weekend. It is relatively light weight, and as a petite female I have never had any issues throwing it on my shoulder to go up stairs. Overall, I love this bike, it was my starter bike before I got my road bike. I still continue to rack up the miles on it, and plan on keeping it for many years.

        I am an active person, work out, golf, weight train, etc. My knees are starting to give me trouble on the treadmill so I decided to buy a real bike. So remember that I have no idea and learning how a good bike should perform. This review will maybe convince a rookie. So short and sweet, great bike. Easy to ride. Easy to operate. One specific to be aware of is the handlebars. This is a hybrid with the straight bar. Make sure you ride both styles to see that your comfortable. This is just fine but does not offer multiple positions. It doesn't impact me but may impact others.

          I don't buy things quickly....research...research. I searched and test rode bikes for months before splurging on the 2010 7.3 Trek. Though love road riding (98%) wanted something that I could ride on trails with kids as well ...the 7.3 fits the bill. Just rolled over total 660 miles...MAX distance so far 52 miles...average approx 10-15 miles with ease. I have fitted front aero bars...with much chastising from my fellow riders, but they are the bomb...elbow rests give you a 2nd place to rest hands on ride. Only issue I have is the rear rim. 3 separate broken spokes...each time take to shop and get repaired. I am now currently looking for a better quality rim to support my +250lb frame.

          Comments:

          I got this bike to take advantage of the beautiful bike trails we have in our area. I was taking my 'town' type bike with the basket, bell, flower and streamers. I felt it was too difficult to maneuver and keep up with my husband on his Trek hybrid. I found this bike and had to have it. On my maiden ride I took it through a local park with hills, turns, bumpy patched blacktop, and speed bumps. I found it very responsive, and maneuverable. The brakes are quick without being grabby. The gears are a quick study and shifting becomes easy after a few hills and terrain changes. The handlebars are comfortable with a good span for my body (5'-3" and 130# with the 17.5 size). The style is sleek with a soft metallic black paint, accented with tan on the inner areas of the bike frame-very different. The bike is light and I look forward to transporting it. I did have to purchase a carbon fiber side-load water bottle cage as the placement of the attachment doesn't allow enough clearance for the bottle on the step through (women's) model.

          It is a great bicycle if you want a fast, responsive one. For the city is simple perfect. It has some minor issues such as the chain that might get derailed when in bumpy roads. I use it in Rotterdam, so it is quite annoying. Nonetheless I would 100% recommend it. If you want lights for city use, it is easy to find accessories for it.

          Comments:

          I recently purchased this bike with all the usual noble intentions of losing weight, getting fitter and reducing my carbon foot print. I am 35, about 42lbs overweight and in dire need of a change of life. This bike has started contributing to all of the above. As such, I have started using the bike for more than just getting to and from work, increasing going for long rides at the weekend and finding alternative routes to increase the journey home. There are a few issues with breaks (need tightening) and gears (can result in a jump causing feet to jump off pedals / chain to slip off ring), but nothing a quick service can't resolve.
