Product Details

2014 Trek 7.6 FX WSD

Trek's 7.6 FX WSD 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 the utmost importance on the FX so it comes with Trek's IsoZone elastomer-equipped rear end that cancels vibrations and a comfy Women's Evoke saddle that allows you to pedal farther and faster. 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.

      Comments:

      This is a daily driven vehicle and I just retired a Trek 8000 mountain bike that was converted to a commuter bike. My Trek 8000 was 14 years old and ridden hard and is still good for resale. I am just braking in the FX 7.6 but couldn't be more excited to ride to work everyday with this new machine. With my rack, panniers, and lights I am ready for any travel, anytime, day or night to get throughout the city and beyond. Trek has been a tested and proven company for me.

        I love this bike because it is a light weight road bike but more comfortable. I use it for exercise. I had a Trek road bike but I wanted one that had the upright handle bars without sacrificing the high end components and light weight construction. I especially like the fact that this bike fits me since it is made for women with a shorter reach.

          I bought this bike in St. Petersburg Florida. I have had it for about 2 weeks and have already put 250 miles on it. It is a great workout, and a lifestyle change. I plan on cycling about 40 100 miles a week. It is a very comfortable ride. The team at the Trek Store were very helpful in coaching me through the process of bike selection and fitting. I have a new hobby.

            Big improvement over my previous bike. Easy gear selection, acceptable weight, comfortable. Like the lower on/off frame design. At this point, no complaints. Great team at Trek in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Very helpful.

              I was ready to buy a true road bike.. Trek domane .... until I saw this bike in my local shop.. 2013 close out model. I test drove this bike and could not believe how great it drove, shifted, and it's comfort level.. I actually prefer the handlebar position. The technology really helps on a bumpy road. Just love the pearl white color! Next spring I might sell this and get the carbon model. FX 7.7 Highly recommend!! I use this bike 3-4 times per week No issues!

                I have ridden the bike for 65 miles and feel I can now write a review on the 2013 TREK FX7.6 WSD. Note: I had returned a road bike that replaced my stolen road bike which was then recovered. I didn't need two road bikes. I couldn't return the earlier bike even though it had never been taken from the store. I received a credit and that is why this bike was purchased. I ride the Trek 7.6 FX WSD 2013 mainly on paved trails, but quite frequently the trails may become crushed limestone or have some sand on them. I also use this bike when it there is a slight rain. It handles every nicely in those situations. I feel much more confident riding the FX than my road bike when it is rainy out. Modification One: The original shifters were impossible for me to use. My small hands couldn't reach the shifter on the right hand side at all. I replaced the shifters with Tiagra shifters and had to pay extra for labor and parts. The new shifters are wonderful and work easily. Modification Two: I had to have a short stem put on the bike. Modification Three: I replaced the tires with slightly wider ones that had some tread. I believe the wider tires with traction will be safer for commuting as well as riding on a damp trail or crushed limestone trails. Modification Four: The pedals were general stock pedals. I upgraded them. I expected this as most bicycles don't even come with pedals. The handle bar grips are great. They are very comfortable. I like that I have a place to rest my the heal of my hands. I like that you can see on the handle bars what gear you are in. The purple paint seems to be holding up very well. I have not noticed any nicks or scratches. The handle bar which is a dark gray almost black is very easy to scratch. I have several faint scratches on the handle bar and I have only ridden the bike 65 miles or so. There is only one place to put one water bottle. You cannot put two water bottle cages on the frame. I was very disappointed with this. Both my other bicycles have two cages for water bottles. I have to wear a waist bag or use a trunk bag to hold water bottles on long rides. I don't want to use a Camel Back. The seat that came with the bike is very comfortable for me. However, I dislike white seats because they get dirty so fast. I didn't want to pay extra to swap the seat out for a black one. I will keep it until it gets so dirty I can't stand it. You can install the Topeak Trunk Rack on the Trek FX 7.6 WSD. I wish the bicycle was available in a XS. I would have liked to see if that fit better. I continually get chain grease on my right leg from getting off and on the bike. This never happens on my road bike which is an XS. If you are short and have small hands you may want to look at another type of hybrid bike. Also, I may have misunderstood the dealer, but I thought he said the purple bike was a 2014. It's a 2013.

                  The best thing about this bike is the speed, comfort, upright position (I also have a Pilot 2.1WSD), ease of shifting, hand position, adaptability, and on and on. I LOVE THIS BIKE! I use it for commuting, toodling around town, shopping, doing the local rails-to-trails systems. I did not like the Bontrager seat that came with it, so I swapped it out for my Pilot 2.1WSD seat (and the Pilot got a new seat). You will not go wrong spending a little more money to get the carbon fiber and componenets for this bike as opposed to the 7.5 or others. For women, there is no other bike :-) BUY IT! You will not regret it. I haven't. Plus, it's purple! (mine is black with gold highlights, I bought it two years ago and have never looked back)

                    Upgraded from the 7.2, at 1,000 miles now, I simply love this bike. Daily commuting through NYC is tough. This bike can handle what ever comes my way, Very light and responsive, handles well under extreme conditions. Between the carbon fork and IsoZone frame and grips the ride is very smooth. With 20 gears to use, I find the changing very smooth and not "clunky" like others I tested. The MSRP was a little intimidating, but after test riding some less expensive bikes, I felt the difference simply rolling this one to the front door. All my other test rides were 6 miles, this one I didn't go 4 blocks before I returned (yes it was that noticable). Durability, at 1,000 miles the only thing needed was to lube the chain and adjust the brakes. I am very impressed with the quality. The Bike gets many compliments on its "looks" the 2013 model in eggplant is absolutely beautiful. Men and women all tell me how pretty it is, and what a beautiful bike I have. My only complaint (nudge nudge monitoring Trek employees) when the 2014 model comes out, a little brighter of a purple would be appreciated! :)

This is my commuter bike for the 18 mile back and forth to work. love it
