Your LBS can modify your light on/off control, but no flashing rear light. I carry an extra strap-on flashing rear light for highway rides. Other adds: I took the suspension seat post from my Verve for the Allant. Also changed to tubeless tires, even though the original Schwalbe G Ones had virtually no wear after 3,300 miles. Plus a few other mods over the miles. Coming up on 2 yrs this summer. Never a dull ride. Class 3 or bust! FYI, I am 71 yrs old.Sparky731,
Thanks, 6500 miles on your 'clock' speaks volumes. I agree with you on the rear carrier and front suspension on your 7s. On my XM700 I replaced the stock front fork
'springy thing' that came on the bike with a Rock Shox Recon Silver and was extremely pleased.... The upgraded 625w RIB you did is very interesting.
I like that a lot. This may be a small 7s complaint, but I don't like the 'constant' on head and tail light with no option to flash. I really prefer and use
the flash option on my other standalone lights.... I think it's time to take a 7s test ride : )
To be fair to other Posters I guess I should have posted my question/comments on the Trek Forum, but perhaps someone might be considering a Trek Allant 7s ?
