    Trek 6500 WSD

    My new 14" Trek 6500 WSD arrived today on the bus. My initial ride around my lawn was a big letdown. My right toe hits the front tire on left turns. It is completely unrideable. Even without a pedal attached, the crank has about 1/2" clearance. I bought the bike on an out of town trip. They didn't have the small size in stock so my buy-decision was made after riding a small men's. Has anyone else had this problem?

    trek 6500 WSD

    I found the problem-turns out the fork was backward! Says a lot for the rider & the Mr. who put it together! No worries now. The bike works great-handles well-shifts well-comfortable to ride-there is fun to be had/Diva

    Thats too much.

    Did you go over the rest of the bike? If they can't get the fork right I wouldn't think they could get much else right either. Good Luck
