Ok, so hopefully this is the last of my threads on the topic of whatever hybrid I end up getting, but I'm left with a bit of trouble figuring out how to compare the two bikes mentioned in the title.
Raleigh Misceo 3.0 http://www.raleighusa.com/bikes/life...misceo-3-0-13/
Jamis Coda Comp http://www.myjamis.com/SSP%20Applica...cat_grp=strt_2
I can tell some of the obvious differences, like the disc brakes and 2x10 on the Raleigh, but I'm not sure how to compare the components across brands. I'm also not sure what the practical difference is with the different gearing is for someone who rides on flat, flat land.
I should also say I'm not opposed to moving up to the coda elite or down to the Misceo 2.0. Also, I plan to put 38 tires on the Coda if they'll fit. And yes, I've ridden and enjoyed both bikes and both shops are roughly comparable. I'm simply trying to evaluate if the different components might have any long term differences as I slowly become a more experienced rider.
Anyone have any thoughts?
