    Give me your opinion, please....

    Iam as new to this forum as you can get, but a old bike rider.

    I went and looked and rode two new bikes today.
    Both were of course Hybrids.
    A Raleigh route 4.0.
    A Globe Carmel.
    Biggest difference was the 700x40CC tires on the Raleigh and
    the 1.95x26 tires on the Globe. Both have fork and seat suspension.
    Only a couple of 5 to 10 mile ride on each would tell me which would
    be more confortable. About the same price $500.00. Iam looking
    for comfort, less neck and shoulder, butt and back pain that I get now
    with my older trails bikes, which have nothing wrong with them.
    I either haveto give up riding or get on something that is going to
    be kinder to my body. I dont have a real favorite. I know you people
    have your opinions, so, please dont be shy...

    Thats a hard choice, ( which one do you like The Best ), : ) Richard, both are nice bikes, but I prefer the 700c wheels, I could choose either one though.. Good Luck, Richard ( Have never rode either one )
