I am new to this forum and just wanted to say hello. I also have a question regarding a bike purchase. I haven't been on a bike since I was hit by a car six years ago. I've since decided that I enjoy riding way too much to let one run in with the hood of a honda stop me from doing it.
I've been looking around at different bikes and I'm having a hard time figuring out what to get. I'm going to be doing most of my riding on the street so it came down to a road bike or a hybrid of some kind. I'm a little nervous about getting a road bike for 2 reasons... they seem to be more expensive than most other entry level bikes and I don't think they are all that comfortable especially if you aren't used to them. (My last bike was a mountain bike) Feel free to correct me if you don't agree. So in my quest I found a couple of hybrids that seem to be fairly nice. The Trek 7500 series and the Gary Fisher Utopia. Does anyone have any info on either of these bikes or have any recommendations for other bikes I should look at? Thanks in advance.
