Just getting back into cycling after many years of absence. I have been researching brands and models for the past couple of weeks. Looked at Trek, Specialized, Cannondale. I really liked the Globe, but kept coming back to the Trek 7.2 and the Gary Fisher Monona. I wasn't too familiar with the Gary Fisher hybrid line of bikes. It was hard choosing between the Trek 7.2 and the Gary Fisher Monona, but the Monona did have better components. The one thing it didn't have was a comfortable seat. Traded that out and that made a world of difference. It's a nice looking bike in silver color. Thankfully I got a lot of ideas by reading these forums.
