    This is a great bike. I gave my old (2009) Trek 7.3 to my son. It had 7200 very enjoyable miles on it. This new version (2015) is a sleek matt black, great components, and seems a bit faster than the 2009. The gearing is a bit different. Only thing I'd change would be the seat, and now that I've gotten used to it I may not change it after all but I would say that it could be a bit more comfortable. I use my bike, primarily, for strenuous workouts of 15 to 20 miles at a clip on a great bike trail I live by. I've used it as a commuter as well and been very satisfied. These 7.3s are the best investment I've ever made...hands down.

      Comments:

      Moving up from my previous ride (Koan Dew), this bike is certainly the superior one. Lightweight, with great handling and speed, my only complaints would be the brakes could be improved and the seat is a little uncomfortable (both easily remedied with a quick upgrade). All in all great bike!

        I've just began bike commuting (7 miles each way) and this is a great bike! It's extremely responsive, quite light but still has a lot of durability. Plus, you definitely get a value on the features when upgrading from the 7.2 to the 7.3. I am a female that went with this model because it fit better than the WSD version. This really is a great bike and I can't wait to take it out for a really long ride!

          I ride casually about 30 miles per week. This bike is perfect: good on the flat and up the hills. Couldn't have asked for more and the price was reasonable.

            Love it. Don't really know a lot about bikes, but seems like it's a good value, well made and fairly comfortable (for a bike). I love how quiet it is. And I really like the padded handle bars and convenient shifter. And for a middle age person, it's very nice looking - not lots of bright colors.

              I enjoy this bike. It is great transportation to store or around the neighborhood. I could be lighter. However it's a very reliable bike.

              This bike was a gift to myself. It makes riding so much fun! When I work too much, I miss not being able to get out for a ride. I bought it as a "first bike", hadn't ridden in probably 18 years. I would recommend this to anyone. It is comfortable, even the saddle isn't too bad, although I am deciding whether or not to get a slightly softer one. The longest I've gone is about 7 miles, which I know is not a lot for many of you, but for an out of shape, middle aged male, it's a good start! Trek came highly recommended, and I see why. Got it for a great price, also! If you're thinking about it, just do it. You won't regret it.
