I posted in the Clyde and Athena forum but wanted some more responses so trying here as well....we have a bike shop that is helping us and we are able to get Specialized bikes but also open to other brands like Diamondback...which I can buy at Dicks sporting goods...but anyway what we are torn between are really these models....
Specialized - Hardrock and Myka (female version for me) more an all terrain
Expedition or Carmel - Comfort bike
and the Crosstrail and Ariel (female version) - hybrid
We live close to the creeper trail and will be riding it a lot but also riding some in our neighborhood paved roads, some dirt trails, gravel, etc
We dont want to be limited to one thing or another so I would say it would be 40% street and 60 packed trails, dirt, sand, etc
So im really torn as to what bikes to get. My husband and I are getting bikes to ride for fun and get back in shape as we are overweight but not obese. We are both in our late 20s. So just wondering on some opinions as im having trouble deciding which style to get!!
