I am in the process of researching/purchasing my first bike (at least in the last 15 years or so). I think that I would like a hybrid - I will be using it on pavement/some dirt roads (in the Philly area if anyone is familiar with the terrain). For that reason I don't think that I want a road bike. Looking at the specs for the different hybrids is like Greek to me so I was hoping for some advice/recommendations.
The two that I have my eye on thus far are:
Trek 7.2 FX: 7.2 FX - Trek Bicycle
Cannondale Quick CX4: QUICK CX 4
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
