Biking Newbie question about hybrid bikes
This is my first post. I bought a Columbia Northway FE two years ago. Just for an occasional ride, and to give my knees a break from running. After riding a lot more this past year, I am looking to transition to riding a lot more and running less. At 53 my legs have a lot of miles on them. It is obvious that the Columbia has some short comings. I live in a hilly area and looking to stick with a hybrid as I can also do some light trail riding. I am 6'1" 220, so not a light weight. I have looked at the diamondback Edgewood and it seems like it is a quality bike that would hold up well. Also see that Trek also has some very good bikes. Any input/advise would be greatly appreciated.
