    Trek 2000 vs Opus Sequence

    Alright everyone. After 6144 km I have officially killed my Supercycle Medalist hahaha. I am now in need of a new bicycle. I use my bike to commute to work in the summer months and try to log an hour or so at night 3 times a week. I have been shopping around town and found two bikes I am both a fan of and am just looking for some guidance from a few experts. The trek is a 2004 and is a used bike, 27 speed shimano shifts, Mavic rims F19 aero bars and and has approximatly 5000 kms on it. Rode great, and really enjoyed it. I then moved my way to the local bike shop, where after trying out a few hybrids (due to the fact they were actually in my budget) I was lead the the cyclocross opus sequence which was just a tad out of my price range. but the salesmen told me take it for a ride and see if I liked it more than the previous hybrids I did not enjoy. I was impressed. I am not sure which way to go at the moment. The trek will cost me 500 total. The Opus will cost me 1133 Total. If price wasn't an issue I would buy the Opus in a second, I just need some advice whether it is worth the extra 600 and change. Hope to hear back soon.

    I think he means that it's bunched up into one paragraph and looks like a pain to read to find your main problem.


    Well I thought about the same thing about buying my cyclocross bike. I was first thinking about hybrids, but I put extra $500 bucks on Kona Jake and I love it.

    People always say this often, and I agree that you should spend as much time as possible about choosing the right bike for you, and after a while, one bike will pop up into your head, and that's the bike you should buy. You shouldn't buy a bike that is not satisfying for you, neither does it mean you must stick with the bike you don't like. After a while of thinking it over and over again, an answer will come up either to stick with your bike, buy the Trek 2000 or get the Opus Sequence.
    I've got 2012 Kona Jake

    Apples and Oranges. One is an 8 year old mid-level road bike and the other is a new low-end cyclocross bike. It sounds like you don't know what you want in a bike.

    Oi veh, I didn't mean to cause such strife. Just a cheeky little comment about an excessively long post with no white space.

    But I agree with the previous poster. Two completely different bikes; get the one you want and can afford. Or start saving for something else.
