I have a nice road bike, which I enjoy very much. I am looking for an additional bike to use just for recreational riding and meandering the neighborhoods. Places where a roadbike would not be able to go or would not offer an upright position for slow sightseeing. A "go anywhere, do anything" kind of bike.
Want comfort, versatility, yet quality. I am not interested in doing any intense trail riding like going over logs or jumping off of boulders. Maybe some light dirt riding or gravel pathways. Mostly pavement. A bike to take on vacation, ride to the market, putz around on. Maybe do a tow path here and there.
Been looking at the Trek Navigator or Trek 7200 or 7300. Got a line on a 2002 7300 for $399. It has suspension seatpost, upright, adjustable stem. 24 speed. Nice frame. I like the 700cc wheels because I am used to that. I am just looking for feedback on riders of the Navigator or the Trek 7000 series bikes. Thanks for any insights!
