My girlfriend loves her Giant FCR2. If you're going to do a little off-roading, you may want to try the Specialized Crosstrail. I got the Elite and I love it.

25.77 mph on the Leelanau trail - the unpaved portion. Not too shabby for getting my bike on Thursday and not having biked in a REALLY long time.

You could also check out the Specialized Crosstrail - hardtail, shocks in front, tires are slick in the center with knobs on the side. It's a good mix of on- and off-road.

Fitness

For those of you who ride to stay in shape, what other exercises, if any, do you do to complement your workout? Any upper-body strength training? Perhaps a core workout?

Thanks!

Also check out the Specialized Crosstrail. It has decent road/trail capabilities and costs much less than a cyclocross bike. However, don't bother with the lowest model, as it's shock cannot lock.
