    Fast,durable,light. Those are some of the things I love about this bike. Price was fair and worth it besides that the seat is a lil uncomfortable but you can always change that. I'll be riding this bike through every season of the year no matter what cause I'm done with public transportation.

      I purchased this bike to be my commuter but also wanted something I could use for fitness. I have a road bike that I use for serious training but the FX 7.3 is great for jumping on for a 30 mile fitness ride or a quick trip to the store. The 32c tires gobble up the road chatter and roll smooth and even rolls well on the beach. Shifting is smooth and precise. The only draw back for me is saddle comfort on 20 mile plus rides but that's an easy fix with a new saddle. Bottom line is that this bike will see many more miles of fun in the coming years.

      This bike handles well & has a smooth ride. It peddles easily & gears change pretty smoothly. I'm relatively new to biking, but I'm impressed with this bike compared to others I have ridden in the past.
