It is quite difficult to buy a bike as there is so much choice and it takes a lot of research. I used to go to work along the cycle path the journey was about 5 miles and it took about 35 minutes. I used my old Peugeot racing bike, I do not remember buying it, I think a friend gave it to me but it was along time ago.
The last bike I bought was a mountain bike, bought real cheap from a discount shop; no I did not bother to research the market, I just bought it as mountain bikes were the “in” thing.
So I have a new job and I live about 10 minute car drive away or about 30-minute walk, or a 10-minute bike ride away on the racing bike or 13 minute on my mountain bike. I must admit the mountain bike is more comfortable than the Peugeot.
As I wanted something more comfortable than my racing bike and more speed than my mountain bike, I decide to see what was on the market, I went into my LBS and they recommended a Trek hybrid, as I had never heard of them I decided to do some research and found they are a famous company, looks like gone are the days of just having one bike company to chose from, which was Raleigh.
Any way I have made my choice, I decided on the Trek 7100fx with the suspension forks, I have only had it a few days, and I am well pleased with it.
