Trek FX 7.1 VS Norco Yorkville

Heya!

I've been biking for a while - but just finally sold my heavy (read: 25 kg) bike that I toured a bit with (which wasn't smart) bike and am looking for a new bike - somewhere in the entry level new Hybrid range.

I was rather partial to both the Norco Yorkville ($395) and the Trek FX 7.1 ($519) - and while a few of the parts are better on the Norco (the wheels and tires mostly) - is this enough you think to necessitate the jump up?

Both bikes are at really nice shops in town, and the shop with the Trek is a bit nicer (less busy, but amazing customer service) than the one with the Norco.

Any and all thoughts would be appreciated!

Our thoughts don't matter as much as yours. Have you ridden both yet? The feel of the ride will be the most important factor for you.

Ditto!

They're really not that much different, component wise.

Thanks guys

I ended up getting the Trek because the shop offered some better service options and the warranty was better.
