Raleigh Detour 3.5 vs Trek Verve 2
I would so appreciate some help. My last bike got stolen, so am trying to buy a new one. Trying to find the best fit. I am female, bike 2-3 times a week 10-20 miles each time, for exercise. I am overweight - and find that the 'leaning' postures are uncomfortable, so want to get something upright.
I am looking at a Raleigh Detour 3.5 vs a Trek Verve 2. The former fits my car bike carrier better. But the latter might be a better bike, I think it rides smoother. Any opinions out there, is the Verve a better bike(in which case I might need to buy a new carrier too..sigh)?
Thanks very much.
