After doing a lot of research for a new hybrid bike, I opted for the 7.3 FX. It was absolutely the best choice. The bike handles well and is relatively stable even for its aluminium frame. The bike isnt the lightest but it is light enough for me. What I love is how this bike can pick up a fair amount of speed and the gear shifting is terrific for the price range. You can barely hear the gears change - it is so subtle that it is almost silent. The handlebars are also good and the pedals are decent. The only thing I swapped out was the incredibly uncomfortable seat. I recommend you do the same, especially if you plan on spending a lot of time on the bike. Otherwise this is about as good of a hybrid bike you will get in this price range. Fantastic buy!
This is one good bike. I have owned this bike about 2 months and have put over 600 miles on it, it has done great. I have never seriously ridden an expensive road bike so I am a little unsure on how they compare. I have gone 48 mph and it handles super smooth going that fast, so that is a reassurance. Another great Trek product.
I bought this bike in June 2010 and it now has about 2600 km on it (1560 miles). I tend to ride frequent short rides, though I often ride a few hours and occasionally go for a full day ride. I regularly clean and lube using biodegradable all-purpose products and a wax based chain lube. When my wife was buying an FX 7.3 WSD I took a test ride on the FX 7.3 and immediately loved it. After decades of riding a "comfort" oriented hybrid this is now my favourite bike because of its comfort, speed and quality. The only maintenance required on these bikes has been a 1/8 turn on a front derailleur adjusting screw on my bike. I highly recommend the 7.3 especially if you haven't tried a bike with this geometry and this quality of components. By the way, we did not experience any improvement when riding other models in the FX series.
i am new to bicycle. my 1st proper bike was a mountain bike 3700 disc, and was stolen. hence the FX as a replacement. i had this bike for 2 weeks, and commuted everyday on this bike. every other day i would bike around 1 hrs as my cardio time. absolutely in love with this bike: very fast, gears and brakes are light and very smooth. hold up fine on bad Boston road. i would like the bike to be a bit lighter, but at this price range, i cant complain. would love to stay with FX line but upgrade to a lighter bike next season.
