Hello everyone! Just like many of the other bike newbies out there, I'm looking for a little help with purchasing.... the last time I got a new bike it was from Toys R' Us, so I'm a bit lost in all of this grown-up bike-stuff. I'm looking for a bike for commuting to and from work, and I live in a pretty flat area however I would also like to be able to take my on bike paths and I would like something that is able to handle the occasional gravel or grass patch, and be able to make it up and down inclined bridges. I am also hoping to move in the next few years to somewhere with a little more hills to it. From what I've gathered, it seems like a hybrid bike would be good for me (but please correct me if I'm wrong!). Can anyone recommend any good brands? I've looked around a bit, and I like the Trek 7200 WSD a lot (Trek Bikes | Bikes | Bike Path | 7200 WSD) although I really like the look of their Drift line (Trek Bikes | Bikes | Cruiser | Drift 3) as well. Other than Trek, I've heard good things about Cannondale and recently a friend told me about Linus Bikes (Linus Bikes | Models).... does anyone know about this brand? Basically... I'm a bit overloaded with information and am looking to see if anyone might be able to clear things up for me and perhaps point me in the right direction... Thanks everyone!
