I have a nice 2007 Trek 8000, but at weighing in at 380 lbs I am not in Mountain Bike Shape and its not very efficient for my area.
I live in rural pa and will be riding in flat to small rolling hills to start with. The way gas prices are heading, trips to the YMCA (15 miles away) will be expensive and I start having less and less time.
I need a bike I can ride on blacktop roads, bike trails and maybe a dirt road now and then.
I really like Specialized, and do have a dealer pretty close to me. Other Dealers in my area are Trek and Cannondale.
I think a road or hybrid bike would fit my needs but have no experience with them and nothing really close to check out.
Hoping to get some good suggestions from you guys, then will do the research and make the trip to dealers and check them out.
