I am currently looking for a hybrid bicycle for my second oldest son, John. He's 11 and a 15" frame fits him well. I have two bicycle makes that I have narrowed it down to. The Trek 7000, or the Schwinn Sporterra - sport. I'm not sure which way to go for versitility and durability. He will mainly be on roads, but being a boy, the call of trails and off-road will appeal to him. I would appreciate any help someone could give me. I'm torn. I like my schwinn searcher and I do a lot of commuting with it, but the guys I bought it from are jerks. I get it serviced at a great place, but they sell Trek. I want to give them the business, but I have to get what is best.
