    Trek 7.4 FX, Giant Escape 1 or Specialized Sirrus Sport

    Which would you choose. All are about the same price now.

    Each of them are nice bikes. Ride them and see which one feels best. If they feel the same, go by color/look. I have the 2015 7.4 Disc and like it a lot.

    Either ride all three of them and make up your own mind or simply flip a coin. They are all good bikes.

    Personally I would step up notch or two and get a bike with disc brakes.

    I'm not a fussed about the bike. All 3 seemed fine to me. I wanted to know in terms of equipment on the bikes, which is better from the 3. To get hydro disc brakes the notches are quite high up. Trek is currently discounting a few in the UK and that's why the Trek 7.4 was entered into the mix, otherwise I was looking at the Trek 7.3

    Not to be left behind, the Giant Escape 0 is the same price as the Trek 7.4 FX.

    I don't know why I even bothered to look at the specs! Escape 0 easy wins! Looks the best of the bunch, too!
