Trek 7.4 FX Disc – first ride review

Hybrid bike with hydraulic disc brakes

trek 7.4 fx disc for sale

Trek’s 7.4 FX Disc is one of their big sellers, and part of the welcome trend for hydraulic brakes to appear on more hybrids. It makes much more sense than superfluous suspension forks.

The Hayes brakes don’t have the absolute stopping power of some, but they easily have enough for urban riding and masses of control. Shimano provide most of the rest of the kit, the 48/36/26 chainrings and 11-32T cassette offering a huge gear range, particularly at the bottom end. Yes, there are largish gaps between gears but their sheer range more than makes up for that.

Handling is sit-up-and-beg steady, not surprising given its lengthy 105cm wheelbase, a theme further emphasised by the relaxed head tube angle. This is great for high visibility head-up urban riding, and comfortable too, aided by the palm-comforting rubberised IsoZone grips. The 32mm tyres offer a good balance of plushness, protection from pothole-induced punctures and rolling resistance.

Considering the price the 11.7kg (25.8lb) weight is decent. Wheel life should be boosted by the absence of rim brakes, and with rear rack, front and rear mudguard eyes and loads of clearance it’s well specced for year-round versatility, too.

A top ride, good kit and a price your bank manager won’t blanch at – a star Trek and a special FX.

Trek 7.4 FX disc , anyone know any similar bikes?

7.4 FX Disc - Trek Bicycle What I'd like for the winter: Flat bars Disc brakes (hydraulic) No carbon (unless in the fork, which is fine) so alum. or steel is okay Rigid (no suspension) The 7.4 FX seems to fit the bill, but it's $880 and has basically no after-sale support in terms of warranty or servicing. I can do the servicing myself, but I figure if I'm gonna buy from an LBS I should be getting some value. Any suggestions?  

I am not understanding this, you have an LBS that says they do not honor any warranty, or offer any service?  

Same thought. I'd be finding a different Trek dealer and letting Trek know that they have a dealer who does not meet their standards. Low cost should not mean low value. Besides, this bike is halfway up their FX series so not so low-cost.  

So here's what the LBS said: Frame - lifetime warranty Drivetrain - 1 year warranty Service - brake and derailleur adjustments for 6 months My issue with this is that there's no 'free labor for the first year' or 'free tune ups for life' etc, which is what I expected. I misrepresented what I meant when I said the bike was sold without any warranty, but I don't consider 6 months of brake adjustments as 'service'. Now when you bust a wheel , buy a new one and they true it, put it on and readjust the derailleur if necessary at no charge for labor, that's what I would expect in terms of service. I used the term 'warranty' inappropriately early when I said there was none, the warranty from manuf. Defects is there, and for 150 there's some 'stuff happens complete care' drive train warranty that you can get for three years

Damn, how much money do you think the store makes off an $880 bike? It seems to me that you are asking for an awful lot.  

So I bought a $600 bike from an lbs in Toronto, and they offered free labour for a year. Then when my seat rail was bent from use, garneau wouldn't warranty it so they gifted me a selle San Marco saddle that someone else just handed over when they wanted an upgrade. Interestingly enough, I saw the price on the monitor that top gear bicycles pays for the bike. $495, so the store makes about 365 minus tax off the sale. I personally wassomehwat surprised that the bike was marked up from 495 to 880 for me, but I understand that 300 divided a few ways and put toward overhead is not tons of money for a business. On the other hand, the owner said it was there most popular bike and that they're likely never putting a bike that popular and at that price point on sale

A bike with lower gearing will be easier to ride up steep hills, while a higher top end means it will pedal faster down hills.
