I am pretty new to cycling and got my first bike in February. I refused to listen to the salesperson and bought a hybrid (Trek 7.2fx wsd) instead of a road bike. In the past month, I've done a lot of riding and really love the bike, however I want to start doing longer rides. I'm signed up to do a 33 mile charity ride at the end of the month and would like to do a century before the end of the summer. Here's my problem...should I go ahead and admit that I was wrong and buy a road bike (I've looked at the Trek 1.2 and 2.1 wsd) or will I be able to do what I want to do with the hybrid that I have? Does anyone else do long distance rides with Hybrids? Thanks!
