Im thinking of buying one of these bikes as it seems somewhat more robust than my crx 2 for the harsh bumpy glassy commute over road and tram track in melbourne

Any one got any thoughts on these bikes or the brand in general

Trek make a very good touring bike, which will stand up to some heavy work, so I presume their mountain bikes are of the same calibre.

Be aware that with disks, you may have to get a new rack to fit a bike with disk brakes. You may also have to check the pannier clearances.

Take you rack and panniers into the store and see if it fits.

i have a 2006 7.3 fx. great bike when it works properly, but is constantly in need of derailer adjustments. very frustrating. but when it’s in tune, the bike is fantastic

I have a 7.3 fx without disc brakes (they add weight and the regular brakes work fine in the city). I think all bikes require derailer adjustment from time to time, but a new 7.3 comes with a great guide/cd which tells you clearly how to do this yourself (if you don’t already know). It’s a lightweight bike with great speed, but it doesn’t soak up potholes with the same effectiveness as a mountain bike wheel. Good potential for updating it with carbon forks/bars/seat post etc.

stephane says this is a good bike so i am gonna get it….it is a really comfortable bike and i cannot wait to bomb around on it. I am pretty sure i will get hit as i live in a busy city…but it will be a good way to go out. Long live the trek.
