I'm new to LBS bikes. My last one was a ToyrsRUs special and I don't want to go back to that at all. I visited a couple of bike stores and after test riding a Fuji Absolute 4.0, a couple of Specialized, along with a Cannondale Quick 6, and a Trek 7.1 FX. Out of them all the Cannondale and the Trek seem to be nearly identical. I like both more than the other bikes I have tried and would like to try to pick one of those.
Are there any appreciable differences between the two? Would there be any reason to go with one or the other? The LBS seems to be pushing towards the Cannondale, but I have a feeling that it may not have much to do with how great the bike actually is.
Here are the links to each bike.
Any and all questions and comments are welcome and very much appreciated.
