2014 Trek 7.6 FX

Trek's 7.6 FX is ready to go wherever you are thanks to its great blend of road-bike speed, mountain-bike stability and more-upright riding position. It features Trek's FX Alpha Gold Series aluminum frame with a carbon fork for a smooth ride and nimble handling. Comfort is of utmost importance on the FX so it comes with Trek's IsoZone elastomer-equipped rear end that cancels vibrations and the comfy Evoke saddle that allows you to go farther and faster than you may have thought possible. Riding far and fast is easy with the light Bontrager wheels and puncture-resistant Race Hardcase tires. And, this sweet machine boasts components from SRAM, Tektro and Bontrager for top-notch shifting, braking and excellent reliability.

A bit pricey but nice bike

  • Same As A Drop Bar Bike

Comments:

I purchased the FX 7.6 in October 2013 and have put on 700+ miles. I alternate between 15, 20, and 30 mile rides, with a mix of terrain, some rides are all flats, some are all hills. Upsides: the bike is light, responsive, and very comfortable for my 6' 174 lb body. Gone are the neck and shoulder pain experienced while riding my 13 year old Cannondale HD300. The FX cranks along nicely when you are doing hills. Downsides: The 52-34 teeth chainrings give a nice range of gearing but they take some getting used to. Shifting between the two is equivalent to moving 2 to 3 gears on the freewheel so the transition is not smooth. Second, you can't fit the handlebars with a set of bar ends because of the isozone padding that is part of the handlebar. So you lose the flexibility of changing positions on a long ride or when trying to get some extra leverage going up hill. I may end up changing out the handlebars. This model is a bit pricey, but overall, it's a fun bike to ride and was a good choice for my fitness riding habits.

    Comments:

    I looked at many different bikes and read a lot of reviews before I purchased my 7.6FX a couple of months ago. I was looking for a bike with a lot of versatility; one that I could use for long rides, fitness rides and general around town commuting. The 7.6FX has a good combination of comfort and responsiveness as well as durability. It has been everything I hoped for and more. I equipped it with a cycle computer and a good solid rear rack and bag to use for carrying general items. I am a long time runner and wanted a bike that could be used to supplement my running. This bike can fit that need also. If well maintained I am confident that it will last forever. The LBS staff were terrific to work with. I highly recommend them.

    UPDATE on Trek FX7.6 by Jody Koval

    By JodyKoval

    from Connecticut

    About Me

    Comments:

    I have put about 800 miles on this bike so far and just love it. The two things I was disapointed in were the skinny tires that the bike came with were not the best off the road, especially if the ground was not hard and flat and the brakes could be better. I was at a local bike shop and they sold me a wider tire, the Marathon (30% wider) and it takes less air pressure, is wider and has more tread to channel water and grab. It is soooo much more comfortable riding now and handels so much better. I also do not notice any reduction in speed. Wish I had known I could put wider tires on day one! They took off the safety spring on the front brakes (backs don't have one) that Trek puts on to avoid liabiliuty in case you slam on only front brakes and tip. I had seen several reciews on line where people complained that while all was great the brakes could be better. They are now with a $7 fix! THIS BIKE TRULY ROCKS NOW! Cheers, Jody Koval

      My old Trek 7200 was recently stolen. One door closes and another opens! This 7.6 FX Trek bike rocks!!! It's lighter than my old 7200 from 1999. I like the 20 speed with only two large sprokets to go back and forth on. On the same local paved trail I noticed that the same small bumps here and there were less noticable and I found myself traveling at about 15 to 20% faster with the same effort. I am not really looking for speed unless I'm trying to outrace a storm, but this factor really does the trick on steep hills that previously I could barely make and now I just do it! The seat does flex with you and on a long run that can be nice :) Handling is nimble and superb. The wieght is a bit lighter for when I have to lift it into my car's back seat (convertable) or over a tree trunk root... The brakes, while they do not skid like the 7200, they do the trick and I just lost a race with a storm last week and inspite of all the wet roads, the brakes did the job quite well! Looks wise... I have had several comments so far... it's cool looking! It also has the screws holes for all the typical ancillary accerrories including the matching silver back rack I got. Built in optional odometer is terrific and prompts you to engage it for a new run by just rolling the bike a couple of feet. I was told that handlebar mirrors were problematic in the past but this new one is steady as hell and works great. The peddals are throw away as I am told many people have a thing about which particular kinds thay want. I opted for a really cool and matching black and white pair of self greased peddals with little brass screws for traction and no straps securing me to the bike (don't like that). Doesn't come with a kick stand, I got one as this bike is too nice looking to lay in the dirt. Even found an attachment to mount my car's Garmin navigator. The cost is a bit on the high side but Trek had a sale and interest free financing for a year that helped take the sting out. However, if I amortize the cost over the 15 to 20 years plus I expect to own this bike then I feel it's an excellent value, especially when one adds in the fun factor! Also, Lou, the owner of the Fairfield Trek shop was very knowledgable, resourceful and helpful. Great experience! Jody Koval

          I ride for exercise and plesure on both roads and bike paths and like the more upright position, thus a hybrid is for me. This bike is a good choice. I did swap out the wheels for those on the 7.7FX as well as upgarding the pedals. I am very happy with this bike and recommend it.

              Comments:

              Great bike, lightweight and fast, but, needs customization if you aspire to longer rides or more rigorous training. The grips are better on the 09 and up. I had to customize all pts of contact including new Ergon GR2 Mag grips with integrated bar end, Serfas Mens Gel seal (narrow style), and Shimano SPD combo platform/clip pedals. I also searched and found white/poly electrical wire/cable wrap online to wrap the 3 cables that run along the top of the bike last model had 1000 scratches from this). The result is a customized bike that gets a lot of compliments even from the pros at the LBS. This is the perfect set up for me for my riding, typical 20-30 mile rides plus a few 60 mile fundraisers per season. The Trek quality is great! Even at 240 pounds up on my toes I cant mash the gears and the Kevlar tires have allowed not one flat in the 3+ years and 4000 miles I have put on this series of bike (started with the 7.3FX before going up to 7.6). The carbon fork and Ergon grips have all but eliminated the hand numbness that plagued me.

              Comments:

              Wanted a compromise between my Trek hybrid (too heavy and slow) and my Felt roadbike (too much hassel to "dress up" to ride it) It's not as fast as the Felt but it is easier to ride and much faster than the hybrid. The carbon fork and iso-zone technology along with the new saddle design do encourage longer rides. A little expensive but I think it will be worth it in the long run.
