    trek 7300 fx or giant hyde park

    Hi, ive just purchased a trek 7300 fx (2004~5) and a giant hyde park (not sure of year) bike from ebay and plan to give one to a freind.

    we plan to do the trans pennine trail (215mile) and obviously i want to keep the best for me.

    here are the links: link1

    link2


    which is better for the route, opinions?

    Regards,

    Andy

    There's little in it. The Trek appears to have a wider gear range. Both are fine for the TPT, which is mostly surfaced, I think. My preference is for the Giant, as I like the older bikes. Trek could be lighter. Keep the one which fits you best, or, the one with the least wear on the drive-train, or the one with the best resale value which is probably the Trek.

    You're welcome.

    It is called the 'Hyde Park'. Steel frame commuter. Your Google is broken.
