Great bike, would buy again.

Pros:
Comfortable, Well Balanced, Upright Position, Smooth Stability, Lightweight, Easy To Maneuver, Fast, Tough
Cons:
None
Best Uses:
Gravel, Freeriding, Smooth Surfaces, Long Distance, Park, Trails, Road
I bought this bike a few months ago, and after riding it for a few months, I have found that it is the perfect bike for me. I ride about 80km per week, mostly on road, sidewalk, paved trails and gravel. I don't often ride on dirt. For that, this bike is perfect. It's not as fast as a road bike, but it makes up for that with improved comfort. I test-road several other similar bikes, but I found that I liked this bike the best. One thing to note is the quick release wheels, which make the bike easier to transport but it is a risk to lock it in the open. For semi-serious bikers who don't need to lock it outside, this is the best bike.

Great bike for comfort and distance

Pros:
Lightweight, Smooth Stability, Well Balanced
Cons:
Best Uses:
I'm 69 years old and have been a biking enthusiast since I was a teen. I've owned several road bikes and mountain bikes over the years but as I got older it became more uncomfortable to ride with dropped handlebars. I was fitted by a local bike shop for this Trek 7.2 FX 2 years ago and it has brought my cycling back to life. The tires are high enough pressure for easy rolling, the gearing is very wide range so hills and flat are a pleasure, and the seat is surprisingly comfortable even on longer rides. I've joined a couple of group ride clubs and have no trouble keeping up the pace, I even lead some rides. I love this bike, it's perfect for me. The easy indexed shifting and good brakes are another plus. The upright handlebars keep my neck from the pain I experienced with dropped handlebar road bikes. The build quality and finish are excellent also. Double water bottle holder brazed ons are great. I use a large poly tank for water bolted to the bike's downtube with a sipping tube clamped to the handlebars. Thank you Trek for making my perfect bike.

Fun Bike/ Good Machine

Pros:
Smooth Shifting, Looks Great, Fast, Smooth Stability, Good Flexibility
Cons:
Best Uses:
Park, Urban Commuting, Every Day Cycling
I love this bike. It's flexible in that you can confidently navigate through areas that aren't cyclist friendly, over grass medians and areas that don't have sidewalks or bike lanes. It might not be road bike fast but it's fast enough and the gears change smoothly. I am very happy to have this bike.

Great bike for most everything

Pros:
Versatile, Good Flexibility, Responsive
Cons:
Best Uses:
Exercise, Commuting
I bought this bike for two reasons. Commute to work (17 mile round trip), and exercise. I am extremely happy with the bike. I have over 500 miles under me and it still shifts well and rides like new. I put a smaller tire on it (700X 28) for less rolling resistance and I like the change. I want to start increasing my rides, my only drawback is inherent to all hybrids - one hand position. I am going to add bullhorns or drop extensions to remedy this. Overall, I would buy this bike again.

A very good hybrid/fitness bike

Pros:
Good Flexibility, Fast, Lightweight, Well Balanced
Cons:
Too Stiff
Best Uses:
Speed
I love the 7.2 fx bike! I bought it in 2015. I use this bike for a fitness purpose. So far, there is no problem with any of the bike components. Personally, I feel that this bike is very light in terms of weight. As a result, when riding very steep hills, I find it easy to climb. The only advantage to this bike is the stiffness. Nonetheless, overall, it is a great bike for the price.

I am a fanatic now!!!

Pros:
Lightweight, Smooth Stability, Well Balanced, Fast
Cons:
Best Uses:
I am a beginner and made this purchase to replace a department store bike. I used that one to ride the bike trails with friends and when I saw that I was working harder and not progressing as much I knew I had to do something. I did a lot of research and ended choosing between this one and a Specialty bike. I am so glad that I made this purchase. I have found a new fitness and weight loss tool.

Great Bike for Beginners, Commuters and for Fitness

Pros:
Great Commuter, Good Turning Ability, Comfortable Seat, Tough, Fast, Lightweight, Smooth Shifting, Well Balanced, Smooth Stability
Cons:
Best Uses:
Fitness, Trails, Casual Riding, Commuting
I started biking to lose weight and get in shape. I eventually started to commute to work (11 miles each way) and for about six months I biked on a cheap bike from a Walmart-type store. It wore out to the point I wasn't enjoying it anymore. I did a lot of research into a lot of different hybrids that were both affordable and great quality. I kept getting pointed back to the 7.2 FX. I finally bought it and I'm glad I did. It's roughly half the weight of the other bike I'd been training with and soooo much smoother. It makes sharp turns and feels fast. The tires are smooth and solid and even the seat is super comfortable (I've seen some reviews complain about the stock seat, but I love it). To me the bike is doing it's best when you don't notice it at all. You just glide along. I won't be getting rid of this bike, and it's only awakened what may be a new addiction: cycling.

Love it!

Pros:
Smooth Stability, Perfect For Commuting, Lightweight, Easy to use
Cons:
Best Uses:
I was a total newb back in May. Went in to the Trek store and told them what I wanted a bike for... riding around town, exercise and eventually longer rides and commuting. A few months later I have done all of these things and it's because they matched me up with my Trek 7.2 FX! For the price it's perfect!

After doing tons of research to find the right bike for my wife and I, we ended up with the TREK 7.2 and TREK 72. WSD. Glad we did it. We're riding more than we've ever did before. Way more comfortable, faster, and lighter than our other bikes. And easy to work on myself. I can't say enough good things are these bikes.

Cannot Say Enough

Pros:
Lightweight, Durable, Great Value, Looks good
Cons:
none
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting
My first commuter/hybrid purchase a couple of years now. Mailed this bike ahead of me on a military deployment and it performed without a hitch during daily commute and even for a 26 mile marathon which was partially off road. Had to replace the brake pads but that was to be expected. Execellent Bike!

Great Bike!

Pros:
Lightweight, Great Components
Cons:
Poor Off-road Handling
Best Uses:
Commuting, Pavement
This is my first real bike, having ridden cheap ones off and on in the past. It was well worth the investment of a few more dollars! The seat is a little hard at first, but I've gotten used to it. It really moves on the paved trails around Northern Virginia, much more efficient than my wife's hybrid-comfort bike. I've taken it numerous times through DC and have had a blast riding! It's a little rough on gravel roads, though. I wouldn't spend too much time off the pavement with this one.

Better than expexcted!

Pros:
Great Components, Durable, Handles Well Off-road, Lightweight, Fast
Cons:
Best Uses:
Fitness, Pavement, Off-Road
I am 53 years old and I use this great bike every day. I bought it and a Verve2 for my wife. She likes the front shocks. I love the smoothness and handling of the 7.2 and it really does have the power to flatten out the hills and makes it a joy to ride. It shifts gears so easily and the brakes are great also. I really can't say anything bad about this wonderful work of art. Our bikes are 2013 models and we have over 2000 miles on them in a year!! We both have lost over 40 lbs. each and aren't stopping. We love our TREKS and I've even gotten into watching the Trek Factory Racing teams at races around the world. Long live TREK and Bontrager!!

Cons:
Best Uses:
Cycle Cross Racing, Pavement, Commuting
I bike around 22 miles a day for my commute to work and ever since I got Trek 7.2 there was no looking back . I was kinda worried initially whether it would carry me well as I'm on the heavier side.But the bike is absolutely fine with all those Seat might be a little bit uncomfortable in the beginning but will blend in after a while Loved the light weight of the bike.This is my first after very long time This is the best bike I have rode in my entire life Even though i got a non disc version the brake is absolutely a life saver as it did save my thrice already (which made me write this review) I can't think of anything that is not good about it absolutely loving it and this just made me love the whole idea of biking around
