Looking to start riding again. Casual, roads only. Like the hybrid style.
I have test ridden a Specialized crossroads... ok. Tried a $400 Giant today...meh.
I liked the ride of the 2013 Trek Verve 2. $589 ...$50 off next week. Seat shock, front suspension, and hand shifters.
Tomorrow going to a different bike shop to test ride a 2012 Norco Rideau... $400.. trigger shifters, seat shock. No front suspension.
Dont really have any clue about the specifics of the components and their respective quality.
Looking for input on which is the better buy and why.
