Which is the better overall deal the Cannondale Quick sl 1 2012 for 1400 dollars or the Trek 7.7 fx 2012 for 2000 dollars. Does the Trek come with better components than the cannondale or what? I've been told by my Dad who worked in a bike store for a long time and LBS that you shouldn't spend more than 1,000 dollars on a hybrid bike, is this true. I see that the Trek comes with the carbon fork and carbon seat post. The cannondale comes with carbon fork. Both our aluminum bikes. I would think for 2,000 dollars that trek would make the 7.7fx with a carbon fiber frame I guess not.
