    Devinci Lifestyle vs Trek 7200 - opinions please

    I am buying my first bike (ever) and will learn to ride soon. I need a bike for easy riding on pavement like the sea wall, around the neighbourhood, maybe on grass, etc...I have no ambitions of fitness riding, commuting to work, etc... Would prefer a bike that I can use for several years - that is a bike that will suit me as I get better riding and has good, quality components.

    I have narrowed down my choices to either the Devinci Lifestyle or the Trek 7200 - they cost approximately the same in Vancouver (maybe $50+ difference). Both are comfortable and feel good.

    Since I do not know how to ride a bike, my observations are limited to looks and feel. I did notice that on the devinci bike, I can put my feet down when sitting, which I am told is easier when learning to ride. But I'm not sure if this is good for long-term. On the Trek, I am on my tip toes and I'm sort of liking the women-specific design idea.

    Which do you think should I buy?

    Thanks very much for your help!

    Both bikes should be adjusted for your fit before really comparing the comfort. The Devinci bike sounds like it has the seat adjusted too low.
