Today marks another day of my continuing commitment not to drive to work. I just bought a hybrid commuter bike from my local Trek dealer. This is one NICE bike. Just by looking at it i knew that this was the bike for me. I remember thinking “If this bike rides as nice as it looks I’m getting it right away; no questions asked”. This is the first time I’ve seen a hybrid up close and personal; as I’ve always either had a mountain bike or a road bike. After test riding the FX 7.3 I could feel the smooth effortless ride of the road bike and the studier, easier turning of the mountain bike. It took a couple of minutes to realize that I was able to have my cake and eat it too!

I’m not going to accesorize a whole lot with this bike. Just some fenders, luggage rack, and maybe some night-time riding lights. An automatic can opener would be nice too…
