Anyone with '2005 Trek Navigator 300

Hi, I'm looking to purchase a 2005 Trek Navigator 300 and I'd like some input from anyone that has one or can offer their opinion on whether it's a good choice. I only ride paved roads and I ride for short periods under 3 hours usually. Is this a quality bike for the money? It lists for $439.99. If another model or brand is better at this price range (350.00-450.00), then please help me decide. Thanks to all!!

This thread might help you to decide. Some good advice from Rich Clark. Review on Trek 300 Navigator anyone?

Remember the thread is from 2002.

I recently looked at that bike vs. a Giant Sedona DX. I ended up with the Giant, but only because for me it was a more comfortable bike. I did like the shifters better on the 300. I'd say its a quality bike based on what I saw, but its just what is most comfortable for you.

Thanks for your input. I went to the Giant site and I liked what I saw. I found a Giant dealer in my area, and I am going to check out the Sedona DX AND LX models. I want to stay in the $350.00-450.00 price range. Any other recommendations are appreciated. Thanks again!!
