Newbie here, been lurking for a few weeks to learn about hybrids.
Currently on a Trek Comfort 3 Bike which I really like. Bought it about 4 years ago and planed on riding wood trails as well as some paved riding.
Recently helped to form a bike club at work for fitness. Looked back at the type of riding I do and realized I ride 95% pavement and 5% hard packed dirt roads. Decided I wanted a new bike better fitted for the type of riding I do so I am now looking at hybrids.
I like my Trek Comfort so I sarted looking at the Trek hybrids. Test road the FX. Really nice and fast but a bit rough riding and the flat bars put to much pressure on my wirst.
Then tried the 7100. That I like. The suspension fork took out the rough ride and the 50mm rise bars gave me a good upright position that took just enough pressure off of my wrists. (The comfort had 80mm rise I believe). I also like the adustability of the handlebar stem.
I also looked at the 7200 and I like the upgrade in componenets it offers, as well as the colors. Sharper looking bikes go faster, right?
The only other bike I could find that was comparable to the 7200 was the Cannondale Adventure 5 or 4 but I have not been able to find one to test ride.
Here are my questions:
1. Am I missing something I should consider?
2. Can I change out the suspension fork in the future?
3. Any weak components on the 7200 I should be wary of?
