As you can see I'm brand new on these forums and quite frankly don't know much about bikes. I'm 15 and currently have an old Trek 800 Sport but I'm quickly outgrowing it (I'm 6'1). I would use it maybe twice a week, sometimes less and sometimes more, ride mostly on roads but would like the ability to ride on bike paths, and my neighborhood is very hilly. Distances between half a mile and 2 miles mostly, but I would like one comfortable enough to go up to 5 miles. So I had some time to kill a month or so ago and stopped in a local bike place that carries Fuji Bikes (fujibikes.com). I talked with the sales guy and he decided I need a hybrid bike. I'm on a budget, under $400 preferably (but if it'll last me a while I may be able to go a little higher). Need some suggestions. I live outside of Cincinnati and the local places carry pretty much every brand I've heard you guys talking about on here.
So, have at it
