The FX 2 has been a favorite for Madison for years. Everyone likes the light weight, fantastic fit and versatility of this Machinery Row favorite. Trek didn't mess with a good thing when updating this brilliant runabout! They kept the lightweight aluminum frame, upright fit and user-friendly features that we have come to expect. But they added something that has been trickling down from mountain bikes for awhile: Disc brakes!
By building the FX 2 around a lightweight Alpha Gold aluminum frame, the bike remains a nimble machine for urban errands, fitness rides and weekend adventures. Mounts for racks, fenders and water bottle cages opens up all sorts of possibilities! For the fitness rider wanting to keep track of ride details, there's an aperture in the left chainstay for an ANT+/Bluetooth speed/cadence sensor (sold separately) that can connect with your smartphone or handlebar computer. Need a place for your headlight or phone? The alloy Bontrager Blendr stem boasts a front-and-center mount for exactly those items! The overall fit of the FX 2 Disc offers a more upright posture, and a cushy Bontrager sport saddle and long-tail Satellite grips make for comfortable touchpoints. Need a short standover height? The FX 2 Disc comes in an Extra-Small frame size!
Shimano's 8-speed shifters and derailleurs give the FX 2 Disc precise operation and long service life. An alloy 48/38/28T crankset and 11-32T cassette adds a massive gearing range to the FX 2 Disc for steep climbs and long rides. 32-spoke alloy Bontrager Connection wheels are shod with 700x35c Bontrager H2 semi-treaded tires for easy speed and assuring grip. Those aforementioned Tektro disc brakes are hydraulic and add plenty of stopping power in wet or dry conditions. Commute confidently!
