Trek 7300FX / Specialized Sirrus Sport? **URGENT**

Hi,

I'm pretty new to cycling. I was wondering if anyone could analyze the following two bikes (hypothetically its the same price). In terms of reliability, build, etc, and overall ridership.

Thanks

Both look good but specialized has better REAR DERAILLEUR Shimano Tiagra than Treks Rear Derailleur Shimano Alivio from a MTB so your derailleurs are worse on the TREK. But other than comfort seat and overall price choose which ever shifts better and make sure your Cranks arm are the right size for your height it may make a big difference on the way you may ride. Look at link http://www.revolutionbike.com/crank_pic_&_info.htm
Which ever bike store gives you the best deal in TO at this time of year take it. My advice is Specialized seem lighter. I only am guessing don't actually know the weight between the two. If i were buying take the specialized. Post reply on the price you buy which ever you choose and store you get it from.

Sorry,the higher end Treks are made in USA. The 7300 is prolly designed in USA,but made in China. There should be a sticker either on the front of the steering head,in the frame 'V',or under the bottom bracket.
