Light. Sporty. Lively. Trek's 7.4 FX is perfect for getting in shape or ditching the car and pedaling to your errands or to work. Its lightweight aluminum frame gets up to speed in a blink, while the carbon fork delivers quick steering and a smooth ride. The easy-rolling 700c wheels along with the hill-flattening 27-speed Shimano drivetrain let you ride further and faster than you may have thought possible. And, the FX is made for not just speed, but comfort as well with a more upright riding position, a supportive seat and an ergonomic handlebar and grips. You also get puncture-resistant tires and powerful linear-pull brakes. Have fun out there!

I had a Marin Muirwoods 29er and was very happy. The only complaint I had was that the bike was too heavy. I test rode the Trek 7.4 at my LBS and fell in love immediately. This is a light well constructed bike that handles beautifully. It shifts easily and the grips are extremely comfortable. The light aluminum frame with carbon forks make for a smooth and enjoyable ride whether on or off rode. The only down side is the seat which is exremely hard and uncomfortable. Otherwise this is a GREAT bike.
Just some background...I am recovering after being on disability for the last 2 1/2 years. I was bedridden for the majority of that time. So this was a huge milestone in my recovery and I wanted to find a nice, quality bike, that was designed for fitness, to treat myself. So, I figured the 7.4 FX would perfect for me to get started. It has plenty of gears to work up to, it's light (compared to what I have owned before), it handles great, has nice grips, nice hard-case tires(I now have h5 hard-case tires), rides quietly and smoothly and you can just feel the quality compared to cheaper brands. I am not a professional cyclist by any means... I did ride a bike growing up almost everyday for 8 years, so I am no stranger to riding a bike. My first nice bike was redline when I was about 11 or 12 years old. Before that I had department store brand bikes. My bike before this was a Jamis Trail x bike. This 7.4 FX is much more suitable for me. I did have some concerns that the Trek dealer in [...] helped me with. The race tires were too hard for the kind of road (tar and chip) that I live on right now, so they switched them with H5's. Also, the seat was as hard as a brick, which they swapped out for me. They also swapped out the stem for me to help to adjust it. More recently I have noticed some noise from the drivetrain or pedals (not sure which) when I apply pressure when pedaling hard, especially in the higher gears. It sounds like clicking and rattling. They do a free tune-up between 30-90 days so maybe they can check it out then.I only have 20 miles on it so I will update this review in the coming months if anything changes. They said things need to be adjusted once they break in a bit. I am sure they will fix or adjust anything at that time. All in all, I am thoroughly impressed with this bike. My mom is also very satisfied with her bike (she bought a 7100 WSD). Between the great service at the dealer and the fantastic product Trek offers, I will be a loyal Trek owner for years to come. I would definitely recommend this bike or Trek, in general, to a friend or relative.
Brand new bike, but after a couple of rides I love it. Very smooth operation, and perfectly assembled and adjusted at [...]. This bike simply glides.
I haven't been on a bike in at least 10 years, but after moving to Chicago, I knew it was time. I went back and forth within the Trek FX series as it fit most of my needs (communiting, visiting friends around town and a means of exercise) and after going back and forth with the 7.3 and 7.4, I went with the 7.4 and am very happy. Not only is it a fantastic looking bike, it's been so easy to ride. It's lightweight with excellent components. I'd HIGHLY recommend this bike to anyone. (I was in the $400-$600 range when I first started looking, but this bike has completely justifited the $739 price tag)
