I'm looking to buy my boyfriend a hybrid bike. He lives in NYC in a 5 floor walk up so needless to say it needs to be a mangable weight! He currently doesn't own a bike, but has said that he would like a hybrid. I want to surprise him with a bike, and I know it's a risk, but I'm trying to do as much research as I can to find best bike for him.
I'm looking to spend around $500. I've looked at the Trek 7.2fx, 7.3fx and it was suggested I look at the Cannondale Quick 4. Does anyone have any suggestions or comments that would sway me to one of these bikes? Is there a huge difference between the 7.2 and 7.3fx?
Any help or feedback would be appreciated!!!!
