    Need advice on my first bike! Trek 4300, 7200 FX or Giant Rincon?

    I'm buying my first bike and I've done a lot of research, but still can't decide what's right for me. I'll mainly be riding on hardpan dirt and hilly roads. I want something that will handle the roads efficiently, but will be ok up and down bumpy inclines of maybe 15-20 degrees. I'm leaning towards the Trek 7200 FX, but the more I read, the more I'm tempted to get a mountain bike like the Trek 4300 or the Giant Rincon instead of the hybrid. Will the MTB be ok on the street? Please send advice my way!

    A mountain bike will be OK on the street but you might want to put slick tires on it.

    I'd get the TREK 7200FX. It's a great bike and well suited for what you want to ride.
