    Hybrid Question

    Hey all I'm new-again to this forum. I was a member last year till my bike got stolen and I gave up on riding for a bit, but now I'm out of college and actually making money to be able to afford a decent bike. I am looking at getting a hybrid and the Specialized Crossroads model has caught my eye. I like the way I sit upright in it, whereas on the comparable Trek I feel hunched over. I guess what I'm trying to ask is if this is a decent bike for someone that just wants an enjoyable, comfortable ride...nothing serious, nothing overly intense.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Could it be that the seat and handlebars are just adjusted differently on the two bikes?

    Specialized makes a decent quality bikes. If it fits you better, get it.

They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
