Question Need advice Cannondale qyuick 6 or Giant escape 2

Hello,

At a beginner level, I am looking a hybrid bike for exercise & for general purpose. I would like to know which bike is better- New Cannondale Quick 6 (2013) which I am getting for around $400 or new Giant Escape 2 (2015). Both are around same price range, how about comfort wise, components & for long rides?

Looking at the specs, I would go with the Giant. It has a slightly longer wheelbase which you find to be more stable; and it has an 8-speed instead of a 7-speed and I think you'll appreciate the extra gear. The Giant is also newer so the technology is likely to be better - bike technology moves down the price-point line a little each year so the expensive technology of 2013 is now on the mid-level bikes of 2015.
