I'm buying my first higher end bike.** I'm looking for a hybrid/comfort bike.* I really want a cruiser for my 4 weeks at the beach, but the rest of the year I live in Westchester County, NY with plenty of hills and lovely bike trails.* Please help because I am completely torn between the Specialized Crossroad Women's and the Giant Cypress women's.* Both ride beautifully.* On the Specialized, I like the extra space bet. me and the handle bars, the slightly larger handle bars and slightly wider tires.* The cypress has an equally wonderful ride and I prefer the seat and i love love love the color.* And the price is $50 lower.* Can you help please? Excited but confused!

What kind of riding will you be doing? On road, off roads, pavements? Since your place has a lots of hills. Get a bike that has a lot of gears.
Tires and/or seats can be easily changed if needed. Do both fit equally well?
That said, it sounds as if you are in love with the Cypress. :)

Welcome To Bike Forums, Hdettwyler!
I've got 2 questions for you:
1) Will this bike be used for commuting or riding long distances?
2) What's the most cash you're willing to spend?
