Trying to buy a bike, help me decide

So, I want to commute to work and bike around Nashville. To get the most bang for my buck, I’ve been cruising Craigslist for something used. Here are the candidates, in no particular order:

  1. Trek 7.2 fx road hybrid (another one here)
  2. NEW! TREK 7.4 FX BIKE
  3. Road Bike, TREK
  4. trek 1.1

In the perfect world, I’d like to get a road bike with flat handle bars. I’m still tempted to walk into a bike shop and just let them sell me something too.

One thought on “Trying to buy a bike, help me decide”

  1. Go to a couple bike shops. Have them fit you (Find out what size bike you need). Tell them your needs and the terrain and distance of your commute. Then try out a couple different kinds (not just brands, but road bike vs. hybrid. vs. commuter vs. cruiser etc). Then start cruising craigslist for the right size and type you want!
