New to the Forum - but no bike yet!

Hi All,

Well that is not entirely accurate. I do have a 1984 Nishiki Sport hanging in the garage, but it has seen little use in recent years. At 71 years and counting, however, I'm looking for an updated and a little more comfortable ride. My basic rides are quite limited, fitness directed mainly, along the local river bike paths around here. No mountain biking.

The Trek Bike Path 7000 Series seems to me an attractive hybrid, offering a blending of comfort, style and flexibility, at a reasonable price. I am looking specifically at the 7100 or the 7300 models, here at Jax Bicycle center in Long Beach, CA.

Anyone have opinions on these Trek models that might help me decide?? Comments pro or con would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Ron.

P.S> any idea what the Nishiki is worth on the second-hand market? Or should I just donate it to a good cause?

The 7300 seems to be a very popular model--but fit and your comfort is key!

A lot of people love those steel bikes (I have a Nishiki Sport mixte, as a matter of fact). Get us some photos, head over to the Classic & Vintage forum, and we'll give you our best guess.
