      Over 800 miles now and not a problem. Comfortable seat and riding position. My back does not hurt a bit nor does my rear. Added some bar extenders which helped prevent finger numbness and gives a better riding position. Keep tire pressure up -70#s or so and it rolls well. Used it 40 miles on a very muddy C&O canal ride and it performed great. Good all around bike.

        After being off a bike for 15 years this bike was the one I wish I had when I had to get off one. A smooth ride on pavement, and ease of operation make this bike a good one or the recreational or commute. I did a lot of research before getting this bike and for the money this bike was a winner all the way around. If you are looking for a bike that will make your commute, and relational ride a pleasure the FX 7.2 is a great choice. There are a number of components that may not be the very best but, the quality of the components on this bike will service you for years. Overall a good bike for the money!

        This bike is well made and easy to ride. I have put about 150 miles on it and truly enjoy riding it. The seat is, as noted, not comfortable after more than 10-12 miles. I got around that by taking a 10-15 minute break. I have not had any problem with shifting, braking or other mechanical problems. I will say the frame is durable. I got distracted after putting this on my car rack and did not strap it in. It departed the pattern at about 70-75 MPH on I-64W one Friday afternoon. It took me a while to notice it and the back track to find it. I expected the worst but it only cost me a new seat and new pedals. No other damage.

          I picked up a True Blue 2014 7.2 FX about a month ago and can't stop riding it. It's much lighter than what I used to have and, obviously, a lot faster. I've seen some complaints about the seat from other commenters, but after about 200 miles, I can't complain.

            I bought this bike after not owning one for 34 years. Raced BMX as a kid and wanted a hybrid in case i wanted to go off-roading some. So far have popped a few wheelies and at 50 either stupid or easy bike to ride, or both. But seems light-weight to me and really good qaulity for the money. Am enjoying riding againa and did not want to spend too much as first bike back. I have never owned a bike before with gears so take this part with a grain of salt, but the componenents seem good quality and shift quickly and easily. Hope this helps.

              I ride about 75 miles a week between work and school and this bike does it all for me. I traded in my early 80's Trek roadbike for the 7.2 FX and couldn't be happier. It's not as fast as my roadbike, I've gotten up to 32MPH on the FX so it's quick enough for my purposes of riding to work and trips along the lakefront. I only ride on the streets and paved biking trails, if I wanted to off road I would have purchased another bike. Longest single ride so far was about 20 miles and it was smooth the whole way. The tires are great, in Milwaukee along the Hank Aaron trail on which I ride a vagrant smashes beer bottles along the path right before Miller Park and the tires have withstood near daily rides over the broken glass. Maybe the cops will get him one day but that's not Trek's problem.

              I try to bike at least two days a week. This can be tough considering I am in college and work full time. After the harsh winter, I was a bit out of shape and was having a hard time keeping up on my Trek mountain bike. I decided to find something light weight and inexpensive. I really feel I made the best choice, I am able to keep up with my riding partner now. It's also a comfortable ride. I really love my new bike, of course I still have the mountain bike for my off road adventures.

                  I am just getting back into biking, and this bike is perfect. It rides well and is quicker than I expected. It is no road bike, but I did not expect that at this price point.
