Just a newbie with ?'s
I'm new to the biking world and as I expected...there are a gazillion bikes to choose from out there.
What I'm looking for: Just something to ride on the bike paths/sidewalk/trails. Nothing of the off road type.
I"m still confused by the comfort/fitness/hybrid/mountain hybrid/ road hybrid/get your butt on a bike and just ride bike/....wow lots of choices!
I went to a bike shop and test road a Specialized Sirrus...it was about $550. I really liked it. Very comfortable. I also test road the Specialized Sirrus Sport (I think that's what it was). anyway, didn't like it as much. It was about 100 dollars more, but it didn't seem as comfortable.
Does anyone know of this type of bike? I know you have to ride them to get the feel for what fits and I plan on going to a TREK store for some more comparison.
I"ve tried looking on Craigslist for used bikes and there's not a lot out there. Probably lots of bikes sitting in garages I'm sure.
Is there something similar to the Sirrus that's a little less expensive? Anything to look for in a bike besides comfort?
Well any help would be greatly appreciated.
