My wife and I are slowly getting back into cycling -- we are shopping a different bike stores, talking, testing, I'm trying to read on the net about different companies --- quality, etc....
We are looking for a "comfort" bike --- mainly flat riding, blacktop, some towpaths, not a commuter, weekend riding --- can be a 1 hour ride up to an entire afternoon/day out.
We tested the various Electra Townies -- we liked the balloon 3i the best.
A friend/neighbor of ours and his wife own a Trek Hybrid --- they love theirs, he said I can test anytime. We were thinking about going to our local bike store to test their "comfort" Navigator models.
Would someone offer your opinion -------
Have you owned/tested either brand ---- is Trek or Electra build a better bike/better reputation ?
