    Welcome to the forums. I'd say get a recumbent. They're alot more comfortable. Check out the pics of some on the recumbent forum.

    Welcome to the forums!

    It may be a good idea to meander on over to the Road biking forum and ask your questions there. There are a lot more folks perusing that forum than reading through the Introductions forum.

    Welcome. Check in at your local bike shop and describe what you are planning to do. They should ask several questions to determine the best bike for your needs. If they don't, they are either ignorant or are patronizing you.

    Welcome! I had a Trek 720 (old hybrid, predecessor of 7200) and liked it a lot. It was of a similar quality but lacked suspension. It was very comfortable and sturdy, but I eventually grew tired of the upright position for commuting and switched to a road bike. In any case, I think it sounds like a good fit for your needs.

    Sheldon Brown, I miss you. Thanks for the advice, ideas, humor, and infectious enthusiasm for everything bikes...
