Hey gang, I'm a total newbie here and was looking at getting a bike for general exercise and just riding around town.
I have a bike store right around the corner from my home which makes it way convenient as I don't know how I'd get the bike home if I bought it further away. Hence my dilema.
The local shop carries schwinn, raleigh and Specialized. I did find a shop further away that sells trek and I did drive out and look at the 7300. There is a shop even further that sells marin and jamis which appear to be highly respected brands on this board.
Anyway, the local shop has the specialized and raleigh. I guess the c200 would be the comparable raleigh as I've heard the specialized sirrus mentioned on this board as being a good bike.
So, do you think the specialized sirrus would be comparable in quality to the trek 7300 or the raleigh c200? I wish the jamis and marin dealers were closer cause I'd serious like to look at those but they wont fit in me little subaru impreza and I don't have a roof rack to get it home.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
