looking for new hybrid
 
Im in the market for a new hybrid. Willing to spend up to 700 bucks but not against spending 300-400. I do mostly road, few trails, few dirt usually 15miles at a time. Any suggestions would help. Found a couple on BD that i was semi interested in. Need professional feedback thanks.

What about v brakes? I don't think someone needs disc brakes on a trekking bike, if not spending all the time on wet and muddy conditions.

honestly doesn't matter to me. I just want to take it to Colorado once a year on trails, not heavy duty mountain biking. I know everyone talks about components so was trying to find something with decent components.

For 15 miles of mostly loose and rocky gravel, I'd get a 29er ht mtb. For comparably smooth and hard packed dirt, I'd get either the Motobecane Cafe Noir or the Jamis Coda Comp hybrids.
