I am finally getting back into cycling after many years without doing much riding if any. I have a Lotus Legend road bike that I custom ordered in the 80s, which was great for me back then, but now that I am in my mid 50s I find it really isn't comfortable for the type of riding that I will be doing. I am not planning on taking any long trips or racing. My riding will primarily be social (with my wife) and daily exercise. I expect to be mostly riding on local roads, but will probably also go out on some local bike trails that are fairly smooth hard packed dirt or gravel.
I am relatively tall at 6' 5" with a 35" inseam, so I need something that comes in a larger frame. I have checked out the local bike shops and rode some hybrid bikes that I really like, but am having trouble making a final decision. I have available to me locally in my size:
The prices are all pretty comparable, although the Trek is a little more than the others. They have a few other models for which they would have to order my size, but all of the ones I have tried seem fine to me. Does anybody have any recommendations among these bikes as to which would be the best in terms of reliability, the type of riding I plan to do, or for someone my size?
