Hello all, New to the forum.
I am 58 and never did any long distance cycling. In fact, have only some exercise bike experience since I was a kid. Want to try to get my body moving again before my brain says stop. Used to work out, have not for 2 years, and could lose 20 pounds. Enough of that..
I have been convinced that the old Nishiki road bike I have and the Huffy mountain bikes I inherited will kill me quickly. Also convinced that fit is everything. Also convinced that I am not ready to assume a road bike position and will almost never go off road. That said, a hybrid seems right to me, and my LBS agrees.
So - my budget is tight - while I hope I develop the liking for cycling and discipline needed, I may not. So - $300 - $400 is my area. I have seem Trek 7200 - 7300 / 7200FX - 7300FX and Giant Cypress spoken of here and have done a few searches for head to head comparisons. Was hoping that some of you here would have already done that research and can share your opinons.
Any feedback is appreciated (well most feedback!).
