Please help me!
I am trying to decide between the Trek 7.1 FX and Specialized Crosstrail base model.
I don't have a lot of money to spend right now (~$400), so I am trying to focus on getting the best base-model, hybrid-type bike available.
I'm estimating ~80-85% of the time, I will be riding on pavement. The rest of the time, I will use it on light, packed-dirt, trails.
I don't know too much about bikes, but I am learning as I read more and more forum posts.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
