Help Me Decide! Specialized Vita Sport or Trek FX 7.3 WSD

Hey guys, I am currently shopping a hybrid for my girlfriend. We mainly ride on bike path during weekend and there are two bikes on the shopping list so far.

- Specialized Vita Sport $660 MSRP
- Trek FX 7.3 WSD $639.99 MSRP

Both of them have similar MSRP$. The Trek seems has better components but alloy fork, and the Specialized Vita Sport has more entry level components but carbon fork.

Which one you will pick assuming both price tags are similar in the LBS?

They are both nice bikes.

That Vita Sport is like a Sirrus without steroids....

Personally, I like the Vita, as the better of the two.

+1 (Isn't the Vita the women's specific version of the Sirrus?) I too would lean toward the Vita as I am partial to Specialized-but why not let her ride both and decide based on the best fit and enjoyment level?

I doubt she'd be disappointed with either choice.

Both of those are nice bikes for the price point. I agree with Fern53. You really couldn't go wrong with either one, but let her try them out to see which one she likes better.
