Which Hybird/Fitness bike is a good deal in the $300-400 range?
I've got bike fever.
I've been looking at GT Transeo's 4.0, Traffic 3.0, Giant Rapid & Roam. I guess the GT Traffic is cheapest of those. I Found 1 for 370.
Anyway, is there another maker with something similar in that price range that is a great 'value'? Light weight, front shocks and disc brakes aren't a must, but if I could have 1 or 2 of those things it would be great.
Also, my current bike looks pretty much like this. GT Talera
I think it's about 21 years old, but it's in great shape except for the triggers shifters. They seem stiff and inaccurate. Is replacing the trigger shifters a universal thing, or would I need ones specific for my bike?
I'm not sure how heavy the bike is? The bike shop put taller front sockets on it when I bought it so I've been calling it a hybird.
Do you think something like the GT Traffic would be a better/faster ride, or just stick with the old one, fixed up?
