    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!

    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'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.
