I'm looking around for a hybrid and don't want to go higher than $600, but would rather stay at $500. I have a Felt and Giant dealer in town, and was wondering if anyone has experience with the Felt X-City line, specifically the 5 and 6. I'm newly into bicycles so I don't know the difference between parts, and really don't understand what the $50 price difference is.
I'm going to be using it in Pensacola, which is a little hilly compared to the rest of Florida, to commute between my apartment and college. So mostly road/sidewalk stuff, and some off road grass/dirt stuff. No intense trails or anything. I would also like to use it to get me around when running errands. It'll mostly be for travel.
Also, if there are recommendations for similar priced bikes. I'm also looking at the Giant Seek 2. But mostly I want to hear about Felt bikes, since I haven't found much talk of them in this section.
