New bike - chose a hybrid.
Just bought a bike for the first time in YEARS....
Initially wanted a roadbike, but it was going to be TOO expensive, so went for a Hybrid instead - Specialized Sirrus for £399.
Rode it home, up some steep hills, and didn't get off to walk once, to my delight!
Bought it to continue my fitness changes, and I think it'll do the job grand. 700x28 wheels for a bit less effort, and a comfortable riding position.
YEARS ago, I had an entry level mountain bike, and then a campag avanti equipped road bike. The roadbike was easier, faster, but a pain in the ass, literally. This thing is close to the MB for comfort, but definitely feels as good as my road bike for effort.
Fat man trying to reform. slowly. :)
