        Was time (actually past time) to get off the couch and begin exercising. The FX is an ideal neighborhood cruiser. Very easy to use and become comfortable with. Here in near NE San Antonio one experiences a hill or two and the FX assists in making short order of the hill climb challenge. Not necessarily a long distance bike - not its purpose - but for exercise, a trip to the store, even commuting the FX is ideal. A pretty good bike - and great service from Bike World.

          It's my mode of transportation. So far and that would be a month it's has preformed very well seems to be a very well built bike. Average day of riding is15 to 20 miles mostly hard surface some hard dirt and does really well. The only thing I think I would change is the seat maybe a higher end road bike seat?? Other then that I really like it.

                    This is my first bike shop bike, just bought in my mid 30s. I've been totally blown away at the upgrade in quality. So much fun to ride. I have about a 10 mile round trip commute that I do 3 to 5 times a week and it is great. I also take it for 10 to 20 mile joyrides on the weekend and love it. I'm having so much fun with it.

                      I bought this bike for my Granddaughter. It's the second FX I purchased for my Grand Kids. I love the durability of Trek bikes. This bike will last them a life time. I personally own 3 Trek bikes and they all have the same quality and great ride. I own a Trek series 2.1 road bike, a Trek Navigator and a Trek DS 8.2.

                        As a novice, I bought the 2009 model in June 2011, and three years later I'd say it's as great as ever, which is quite a compliment considering I had done zero maintenance during those three years. For the first two years, my riding habits included riding to nearby stores and going on 40-mile-long rides, which were grueling but through no fault of the bike; I attribute the discomfort to inadequate food and water, bad seat adjustment, and ozone. Currently, I commute to work 8.5 miles almost daily, and it's a joy. I've been trying out different saddle and handle bar positions and have found that I like the handlebars being lowered a little; leaning forward a little more keeps the saddle from getting too uncomfortable. Regarding the lack of maintenance, I still use the original tires,and although the back tire is getting bald, the front tire is still in reasonably good condition. The brake shoes are still the originals, though the back pair are nearly worn to nothing, so I'll be replacing those soon. I had never washed or oiled or greased anything until last week. The ride felt quicker, smoother and quieter. Never had any spoke problems like others have mentioned. I can't comment on how the ball bearings are doing because I don't yet have the courage to One thing I dislike and a few tips: -My thumbs often get numb when commuting and I can't find a position that prevents that. -When you first get the bike, check if the nuts on the wheels' axles can be loosened. It helped mine spin more freely. -One wet winter ride caused the cassette to rust slightly, but that hasn't worsened the ride quality. -The back tire has a spot that's flatter the the rest of it. This might be due to leaving the bike on its wheels over one winter. -The derailer seems to be very precise and sensitive. I had no problems at all for three years until I washed the bike. I guess I hit the adjustment knob. It took a lot of minute, back and forth knob-turning, but I got the shifting just about back to the way it was before.
