Hello All,
I am a Senior just starting to cycle again after many years. Am doing this for fun and health. Am in good health, other than circulation in my legs, and also need to lose some weight. I am in the process of buying a bike and want to choose between a Trek 7300 and a Cannondale Adverture 5. Am leaning toward the Cannondale due to the handle bar style. Any thoughts?

Fit is more important than anything else. When comparing bikes in the same price range, there shouldn't be any real difference in quality or features. So go for the one you feel is going to be most comfortable, and suit you best.

HI I am a senior allso 65 and ride about every day I only started rideing about a year and a half ago. I hope you like riding as much as I do:thumbsup:.
The bike fit is what you want, I would try a fue bike stores, find a bike you like and feels good. If thay don't let you ride it go to anouther store.

Wild reminded me - a shop that will work with you on getting the best fit (adjusting seat, handlebars) should also be a top priority. A really good shop will sometimes swap bars, stems, and seats for you. At the very minimum, they should work with you on the correct stem length.

It's nowhere near as complicated as I make it sound though.
