After riding around last year on a Canadian Tire special, I decided this would be the year I purchase a real bike (i.e. not from a department store).
Given my minimal knowledge of bikes, I’ll admit it was a bit intimidating to walk into a store and know almost nothing about the products on display. But, after much hemming and hawing, a few days research, and a fruitless trip to Calgary’s annual Bike Swap, I eventually decided on the Trek 7.2 FX.
I could feel the difference immediately. The Trek is fast, smooth, and light – everything my previous bike was not. In the week since my purchase, I’ve spent time on the bike each day.
I always look forward to riding it, and the more I ride, the more I want to keep riding – clearly the sign of a great bike.
