Is that done by adjusting saddle height or position? I probably cannot do much on the handlebar end. I purchased this bike used, what I need to do is get a proper fit at LBS.

Check your local Craiglist and talk seller down in price. The good bikes go lightning fast these days. I have seen some pop-up late at night and by the following late morning the bikes are sold!

What model year is this Trek FX 7.2?

I picked up a Trek FX 7.2 for my son. Beautiful bike!

How can I tell what model year the bike is? I suspect that it is a 2016 but would be nice to know for sure.

Go for it!

The 2010 FX 7.5 has better components and will be lighter. The 7.5 has a carbon fork, making the ride smoother. As long as the frame is in good shape and the price is right, I'd go for it.
