    Strengths:    Fast not bad on long 50 mile rides comfortable seat if your used to road bikes that have a brick for a seat

    Weaknesses:    Brakes frame quality

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought a trek 7.2 put 500 miles on it then my front derailer and cable decided to down shift all the way and threw me off the bike I take it in the shop told them about looked in to it found out those cables were flawed and were recalled so a year later at about 2500 miles I take it in and the shop told me my frame was bent and waited a month and a half for them to tell me that trek won't replace it because park tool says .30mm is the limit my frame is .60mm twice as much which come to fine out was caused by the bike down shifting and throwing me in the dirt the bike shop told me it was flawed from the factory so now I have 5300 miles on it I will be scraping it or selling it in a year and never buying an other trek this is the second trek both were really bad last is dead if you ride everyday like I do don't buy if it's only once in a while sure go for it

    Strengths:    Very fast and nimble light quality materials comfy grips cool color scheme not too flashy smooth shifting

    Weaknesses:    Seat hard as a rock but all the hybrid bikes I tester were no better. To many hot chick's trying to stop me cause I look so good on it. Forgetting to make my car payment cause I never use it anymore.

    Bottom Line:   
    Ok people I'll start off by saying I bought this bike right after I bought a brand new car. It's a nice car nothing special "2014 chevy malibu". Im actually and genuinely more excited in the morning to ride my bike then to drive my car. I work about 10 miles from my house and it takes me 15 extra minutes by bike but I don't care. Just an extra 15 minutes of wind in my hair. Bullet proof frame smooth shifting and come grips make it a joy to ride. I paid a little more than the msrp because I live in San Francisco and bikes are in high demand $639 but the shop gave me $50 in free accessories. I almost made the mistake of buying a fixie but the shop keep set me straight. 100% satisfied and would recommend it to any one thanks Trek.

    Strengths:    One of the best bikes I ever owned ! Now it is 5 yrs old, and it is in good shape. Only things I had to replace were the brake pads. This year I had to replace the pedals for the first time. Last season I had made 1500 km mainly on the roads with various surfaces. Bike is built from good quality parts.

    Weaknesses:    none

    Strengths:    Strong, durable, faster than an MTB, mudguards are fittable, frame style, sporty commuter

    Weaknesses:    A bit heavy, upright, slower than a road bike, rattles your teeth on old tarmac, not really a touring/recreational long-ride bike unless you are pretty heavy

    Bottom Line:   
    I have had mine for about 6 years mainly for my daily 5 mile commute at bout 20mph (30kph). This bike is exceptionally durable and strong. I have recently (i.e. after more than 5 years of use) changed the plastic pedals for some aluminium ones, replaced a rear brake (one of the tensioner springs broke and they were not sold separately) and the rear wheel (a spoke broke and the rim was worn down) but I think that I have had the same tires since new. I may even put the old rear tire on my new wheel since it has better grip! The only flats I have had were pinch flats from not keep enough air in the tires.

    At the same time I had hoped that I would be able to use the bike recreationally, as I did my previous commuter which was an entry level Giant road bike converted to a hybrid style with flat handlebars. I was able to use the lighter Giant for both recreation and commuting. I did try taking this bike for 25km runs but it is a bit too heavy, and the sturdy frame transfers too much of the road surface irregularities to the rider. I ended up purchasing a carbon bike for recreational use - my best purchase ever.

    So I recommend that anyone that wants to do more than commute should at least get the 7.5 with carbon forks, or put some carbon forks on this (they can be had cheap from China). I also recommend removing the stem (the 10cm bit of tube that holds the handlebars to the headset at the top of the front fork), flipping it over so that it is angled down, and moving the spacers from below to above the stem for a more sporty / less upright ride. I also put some clips on the pedals. I don't do them, so I can get out easily, up but just stick my toes into them. Finally, to improve ride comfort I put a center-hollow Selle SMP Hybrid saddle on it.

    Bottom line: Good reliable fast A to B commuter.
