I have been doing research into buying a bike. I have not ridden in at least 15 years. So far I have ridden Hybrids and comfort bikes. I know of some makers, but not many. I did not enjoy the Fuji I road, and the Giants weren't bad once the handlebar was in the right position and the tire was not a road tire. I felt like I had the lbs guy remaking the bike for me. I really enjoyed the Gary Fisher Zebrano. I need to go back and try the Trek 200 and 7200. I am a little undecided on comfot versus Hybrid. I enjoy a more agressive style but at my size (very large right now ) I definately need the wider seat. I have found the 700c wheel versus the smaller mountin style wheel can be equally comfortable depending on the way the bike fits me. I am considering the lower end of the bike type and upgrading parts at my lbs as my health improves.
Could anyone suggest other bikes to try on. I am only 5'4" so I am also dealing with needing no more than a 15" frame. I am not sure I want to look at a road bike. I live off a 4-lane country divided highway and that is where I will be primarily riding.
Thanks for all your help.
