HELP! Need advice on a new bike.
I'm relatively new to biking and I need some advice on buying a new bike. I did some casual biking when I was a kid and during high school but have not biked in a while. I'm a 24, 5'6" 130lbs male who's looking for a hybrid bike mainly for commuting to and from school/downtown (both about 20-30 minute bike rides) and well as for some light off-road trails. I'm not looking to race or do anything off trail that would require a heavy duty mountain bike. Also, I live near the Seattle/Vancouver area so we receive lots of days with light rain if that makes any difference. After shopping around a little, I've narrowed my search to four bikes:
(KEEP IN MIND THESE ARE IN CANADIAN DOLLARS SO THE PRICE MAY LOOK A LITTLE INFLATED):
Giant Cypress DX - $500
Cannondale Adventure 400 - $550 (on sale from $650)
Trek 7.2FX - $520
Trek 7.3FX - $570
Which do you think is the best deal for the type of bike I'm looking for? Thanks!
