I've been doing some research prior to posting here...I'm trying to decide on which bike is the best fit for me. I've narrowed my choices down to a Trek 7.1 FX, a Cannondale Quick 4, and a Jamis Coda Sport. I am a 26 year old female just getting back into riding. I plan on doing mostly paved trails, roads, or very simple off road trails (hard dirt, packed gravel, nothing too extreme). Starting out, I know my distances won't be that great, but I would like to get to the point of possibly riding 20+ miles in a trip. Based on your experience and expertise, does anyone have any suggestions. If you recommend another bike, I'd like to keep it in the same price range as the three I've listed.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. If I've left any pertinent information out, I apologize.
Thanks in advance!
