Need help choosing entry level Hybrid..
I'm a noob to cycling and haven't been on a bike in 15 years. After a bit of research, I've decided on a hybrid for practical and financial purposes. I've narrow my top three choices to the Giant Cypress, Trek 7100 and the Cannondale Adventure 5. Can the cycling gurus please enlighten me on which one to choose? Build quality, better components with the weight, durability(I ride at least an hour a day) and ease of pedalling up hills being the most crucial (I'm a bit out of shape). Generally used for mild exercise, riding with my VERY high energy dog and occasionally riding bike paths. Thanks for everyone's help!
