New Bike doing just OK

I have about 290 miles on my Trek FX 7.3 right now. I’m having some problems with the front brake pads occasionally rubbing the rim. And, now, strangely, the seat has started creaking. It may be loose, or it may be junk. I’d lean towards the later.

But, the good news is that I’m enjoying the heck out of it! 290 miles in under 2 months sounds like a tremendous amount to me. I did a 20 mile ride on Sunday. Was pretty beat afterwards, but I finished. 15 mile rides are almost no sweat now.

So, yea, as long as you are willing to have a money pit and put up with some brake problems, the Trek FX 7.3 is a good one. I mostly ride on bike trails when I can, hitting the roads when necessary. Too skeered to do too much on the roads. Too skeered to get clipless pedals and shoes right now too.
