    Giant Cypress SX or FCR 1?

    Hi,

    Im looking at getting my first bike and commuting alot during the week about 20km per day each day.
    I also want to ride the bike alot for fitness rides on weekends too.

    Most of my communiting is on road and over grass in parks and off the occasional gutter.

    I am 6ft 7inch and I weigh 120kg so I need a bike that would suit my size and weight.

    I think I would prefer flat barred bikes for an upright style.

    Budget not a problem.

    As I said main reasons for bike is for commuting lots and for fitness rides.

    What model of bikes could be my best options?

    I was leaning towards the Giant Cypress SX (comfort) or the FCR 1 (flat bar road bike) as options?

    Which of these two options would you suggest for me?

    I am also willing to hear of any other options in other brands?

    Any help would be greatful.

    Thanks.

    You really should post this to the commuter group.
