I recently took a trip to 2 bike shops today and I had a choice of getting a Trek 7.1 FX or a Specialized
Globe Carmel 1. The Trek 7.1 FX was going for $399 while the Specialized Globe Carmel 1 was being offered for $350. I didn't want to just buy it off the price alone but wanted to get your guys opinion on the matter. I rode both of them and the speacilized felt more comfortable but it didn't seem to be equipped for fitness riding. I'm not sure though, I'm a newbie .
