    Yet another "what bike" thread

    Hi, can someone please give me their professional opinion about these two bikes I'm considering:

    Felt 2007 - QX80 http://www.wheelies.co.uk/bikesNew/b...&supplier=FELT and
    Trek 2007 - 7.3 FX Disc. http://www.wheelies.co.uk/bikesNew/b...&supplier=TREK

    I wanted a hybrid bike that was more adapted for racing than my mountain bike but still tough enough to handle the occasional bit of offroad but not heavy offroad use. I think to be honest, the Felt one is probably superior build quality but I was seduced by the idea of disc brakes with the Trek one for the same price.
    What do you guys think? Does anyone have either of these bikes?

    Rob

    I like the fact that the Trek comes with a rigid fork. I'm not a fan of suspension for riding on the pavement.
