What to replace old Trek 800 Sport?

I am looking for a new bike. I have an old Trek 800 Sport. It is heavy and needs more work put into it than it's worth, so it's time to replace it. I like the geometry of the bike (it's comfortable for me) but I don't want something with quite such thick tires. I'm thinking most hybrids now have similar geometry to this bike. Can you suggest anything? I like the look of the Trek FX, Specialized Sirrus/Sirrus X, and Cannondale Quick line. I will use the bike primarily on paved roads/trails and sometimes on dirt/fine gravel groomed trails. Would the above mentioned bikes handle packed dirt/small gravel OK? Maybe with a different tire? I don't have any plans to do mountain biking.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Yes, those hybrids will probably feel somewhat similar to your Trek. Others to consider are the Giant Escape (another aluminum-framed "fitness hybrid" like the rest in your list) and the Jamis Coda, a steel-framed "fitness hybrid" that may provide the best ride due to its steel frame. The "current situation" notwithstanding, test-riding different bikes will be the best way to determine what fits you the best. Each of these is similar in concept, but different brands will tend to fit a little differently. Plus, you might like the colors of one better than another, etc. The components are all generally pretty similar at similar price points, so I recommend you shop based on personal fit and aesthetics like color and style (and which local bike shop gives you the best feeling).
