Looking for advice on hybrid bikes
« on: April 27, 2018, 02:56:37 AM »
I'm in the process of purchasing a new hybrid bike and leaning between a Trek Zektor 2 or FX 3. I primarily will be using it for fitness, but will use it commuting occasionally as well. I'm 80% Road,15% gravel and 5% off road (best estimate). Regardless I plan on getting a bigger tire 36+ no matter what bike for better shock absorption. Both seem like good fits. I like the carbon fork in the FX but like the disc brakes in the Zektor. Im open to other bikes similar to these, but would like to stay $700 or less. Looking for any advice/suggestions or links of best hybrid bikes. Any help is appreciated!

Look at that bike. Disc brakes. Carbon fork. And comes with 50mm tires. Yes, it is above $700, but you saved not having to spend $100 on the new tires, and you get to check all the boxes.
