I bought a Giant Roam 1 earlier this spring and I really like the bike. My wife got one at the same time and we thought we would be doing more trail riding than roads. As it turns out, I have gotten into riding roads much more than trails. We live in middle TN and it is pretty hilly for a rider of my age, fitness and ability (58, 200lbs). It has become painfully clear that I need to supplement my bike portfolio with something that is more road friendly and relegate the Roam to trails.
I don't have any huge goals other than overall fitness, no real interest in riding centuries or group rides. My question is should I go for an entry level road bike or look at a more road friendly hybrid like a Trek 7.x? I have been researching and thinking about a Specialized Secteur or Cannondale Synapse.
Thanks for your thoughts.
