Mongoose Crossway 450 vs Trek 7.3 FX

My boyfriend is looking into getting an hybrid and we're looking for advice. These are the two bikes we've spotted.

Mongoose Crossway 450
Trek 7.3 FX

Does either stand out more than the other as far as quality goes? Which one do you reckon would be better?

He's both looking for a leisure bike and a possible commuter. So basically a bike that holds up pretty well and is enjoyable to ride.

Any thoughts?

Well, I just got the Trek 7.3 FX a few days ago and so far I'm loving the bike.

We've now decided not to go for the Mongoose after going to the bike stores today. He's wondering if to get the Trek 7100 or Trek 7.3 FX, we tried both today.

There's some price difference but I can tell he's more into the FX.

The 7100 and their siblings are more of a comfort bike,handle bar are higher,fatter tires,softer seats.FX line are sportier and more nimble.
