my Trek FX 7.5 was stolen a couple of days ago, and I'm looking to replace it with a 7.7.

I really liked the 7.5, so happy to stick with the brand and make, but thought I should consider other bikes that are similiar. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks, Giles

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Is there any thing you really liked or disliked about the 7.5?Will they be remedied by the 7.7. – mikes Mar 2 '12 at 4:14
I feel for you man. – Greg Apr 17 '12 at 8:43
Have you considered moving away from a Hybrid. My first "Adult" bike was a hybrid, but after I wore through that, my next bike was a touring bike. I really liked having drops more than flat bars, and found that a touring bike was great for getting around the city. Trek makes the 520, which is a really nice touring bike. – Kibbee Oct 1 '13 at 20:23

Both the 7.5 and 7.7 are great bikes. An alternative would be a Specialized Sirrus. I have owned 2 Sirrus' and loved them. I only upgraded to a Specialize roubaix so i could participate in competitive road biking.

The difference between the 7.5 and 7.7 is pretty big. 7.7 has much better road worthy components and will be several pounds lighter.
