I'm in the market for a new hybrid bike and have been looking at the Trek 8.4 DS. Does anyone have any opinions about this bike or can you recommend an alternative. I'll be doing my riding mostly on paved roads and paths as well as light trails. I'm 6' tall and around 210 lbs.


Any advise is greatly appreciated.
I have the DS 8.3. I love it and would love it even more with the hydraulic brakes on the 8.4. Big downside is climbing. It's a mother to go up hills. If you only do very occasional light trails you might want an FX. Without the suspension fork the FX is lighter.
