Thanks Cooker... Di most "Try a Tri" races advertise as such, or do you just need to ask around. It's tough to find races close enough to me (North Idaho), so I may be stuck with a standard...

Ride as many bikes in your price range as possible. I loved the Trek 7.3m but ended up on the Giant Rapid 3. A fine performance hybrid!

Offroad on Giant 3???

I just got a Giant 3, with the stock 28 wheels... I was wondering how far should I trust it on offroad conditions. I assume that hard-pack is OK, but what about gravel and small rocks???

Found out something interesting today... I did a hill climb, and going up the saddle felt GREAT!!! Perhaps a downward nose adjustment for flat riding???

Sadly, no performance shop, and the closest REI is 2 hours away. But it looks like both have a good return policy.

For what it's worth, I was absolutely torn between the 7.3 and the Giant Rapid 3. The Trek was a bit more comfortable, while the Rapid was a bit faster. But I loved both bikes.

I have to agree that you should look at the Rapid 3. I just pulled the trigger on one yesterday (and I had racks put on for panniers). It was the most bike for the buck in the category. Also look...

Try to get a ride on both of them and see. I was fairly skeptical about there being much of a difference between the 7.2 and the 7.3. But I rode both a 7.2 and a 7.3 and there was a HUGE...

I've looked at the Giant online, but the closest dealer is 50 minutes away. If I want to support my LBSs I'm stuck with Trek or Specialized.
