I love my regular around town cruiser, which I use for trips of 10 miles or so. However, I want to go on other bike tours and need to look for a hybrid or touring bike to go uphill, with a selection of gears/speeds. I am 5′ 5″, with apparently a short inseam: only 26″. This will present some fitting difficulties. I rode a Terry this summer and loved it, but there aren’t any Terry dealers within hours of my location. Any thoughts on a Trek FX?
From Trek website:
“We call it a fitness bike, but this is Trek’s most popular platform for a reason. Roadies, commuters, fitness freaks, errand runners, Sunday riders — everyone loves the FX.”
And thanks to Dottie and Trish at http://letsgorideabike.com/blog/ I’ve been infatuated with sturdy beautiful bikes such as the Pashley. Again, any thoughts?
