Thanks guys . . .
The girlfriend isn't a member, and doesn't seem to want to join. She knows how many hours can be wasted on internet forums . . .
We're looking at several bikes, mainly between Trek, Raleigh, Cannondale. Kinda thinking hybrids types mainly for $ and the fact we haven't ridden in 10-15 years.
Raleigh - Her dad rides them. Been looking at the Detour Series (4.5?)
Cannondale - I like the fact they are made in the USA. I know that is changing, but it is important to me. Seem to have good components. Looking at Adventure Series, can't remember #.
LBS sells both. Her dad's shop can get us helluva deal on Raleighs, but is 2.5 hrs away. I want to buy local.
I don't mean for my first posts to be asking "Which bike" but at this point, that's all I have to contribute.
