I'm looking to buy a new bike. I've been riding a Trek mountain bike for 9 years, and I've outgrown it (stopped growing now, but you get the idea ). I really know nothing about bikes (I was 11 when I bought the last one). I'm looking to upgrade to a more road-friendly/commuter bike as I'm going to school in New York City and will want to bring it up there in a couple years (not now, as I live in Georgia when I'm not in NYC and I don't want to haul it back every few months). I like the "hybrid" style bikes (frame of a mountain bike, straight handles, but thinner tires) as I want to use this bike for exercise and for getting around. I live in a pretty hilly area, and there are some dirt paths I like to ride down in the woods (nothing extensive -- most are actually paved, so I don't think I need a mountain bike, as it's just slowing me down on the 95% of the time I'm on the road). I've been test-riding bikes at a few stores, and I think I have it narrowed down to two bikes -- can anyone give me any suggestions/advice on these two? Or in general? 1. Jamis Citizen 2.0 - $450 This is slightly more comfortable to ride than the Trek, but I don't know the brand at all. I also get a $50-100 off for trading in my old bike, so it makes it a great deal (and I'm on a budget). http://www.jamisbikes.com/usa/bikes/08_bikes/08citizen2.html 2. Trek FX 7.2 - $500 This bike feels more solid and better for hills, but it's a bit uncomfortable and a bit big (it has a 15 inch frame while the other has a 14.5 inch which fits me like a glove). I've loved my other Trek bike until now, though, and the quality feels great. No trade in. http://www.trekbikes.com/women/wsd_products/bikes/2008/bike_path/72fxwsd/ Thanks, guys!
