Purchased Trek 7.3 FX

I’ve gotten fed up with the shin splints when running, and fed up with the elliptical and stationary in the fitness center, so I decided to buy a bike!

The first store I went to wasn’t helpful AT ALL. The salesman basically told me to find what I like and let him know, then went back to starting off in to space.

Second store, Bicycle Garage Indy, was MUCH better. The two salesmen I talked to were friendly and knowledgeable and steered me towards a bike that will meet my needs. I ended up with a Trek 7.3 FX. There was a great difference in feel between it and the 7.2 FX that I had first set my eyes on. I could immediately feel the difference when shifting, pedaling, etc. I thought the cost difference was worth it.

I took it on a brief 5.8 mile spin tonight and had fun. I’ll try for 10 miles in the morning and see how I like it then!

Here was a quick snapshot from right before I took it in to my apartment for the first time:
