My wife has a Raleigh c200 and it's a good bike for rides up to 25-30 miles with no problem. It's not a speed merchant, but it's a good, solid bike. A riding buddy of mine has a Specialized Sirrus and it's a speedier and (for lack of a better word) a more serious bike. It's got thinner tires and a more road like stance. If you're going to be riding for more than a couple of hours at a time, I'd give the nod to the Sirrus. I'd consider the 7300 if you're looking at the FX model for the same reasons as the differences between the c200 and the Sirrus. All that being said, you need to ride each one of them and decide which bike feels the best to you - that's the one to get. Good luck and remember that test riding is one of the best parts about making the decision.
