silly question maybe, but I have been giving this some serious thought. Just recently ( 3 months ago)got back into cycling, after about a 10yr lay off, my motivation was excersise/weight loss.
I started with an old schwinn varsity 12 speed and have since gone onto a few trek hybids, 7.2,7.3 and currently a trek 7.5FX, love it, very comfortable, fits me great, etc..
I am starting to want longer rides, currently I ride 10 miles aday, I would like to start doing 20/25 a few times a week, I am thinking about a true road bike again, I guess for a bit more speed and I miss the different hand position options..
will a road bike make any difference, or is what I have already perfect for my use? any real benifits to going to a full road bike over my hybrid?
