Hey everyone, It has been a while since I have visited the site. I hope everyone had pleasant holiday experiences. I am buying a bike for my girlfriend (went through a divorce this year ) and it has proven to be a task, she is 5'1 and 1/2
I am trying to decide between 3 bikes around the same price point from 3 manufacturers. I do not know if there is a significant difference other than perhaps personal preference once they are ridden. I have found the Specialized Vita, trek 7.2FX, and the Giant Escape 3. Is there any major difference between them? I almost forgot, she will mostly ride on flatter surfaces, roads, paved pathways, and compacted dirt areas until shes more comfortable.Any help would be much appreciated.
