    Hi and welcome. My only suggestion is to not be in a hurry. A road bike is probably something you will live with for quite awhile and you don't want to settle for second best. Even though the Trek 7500FX is a good bike, if you truly are looking for a road bike, you will not be completely satisfied. You can always keep the hybrid you now have and put a few dollars into it as needed. Trek and Specialized also make several women specific models. Your lbs should be able to get some in so that you can give them a test ride. Jeff
