Torn between two hybrids

03 March, 2012 10:10PM
Specialized crosstrail sport or Trek 7.3
Please help me decide. I intend to commute on this bike. 20 mile round trip. I will use mainly cycle ways, some grit paths, a little road and about 2 miles of not made track, down the side of a farmer's field. Could be muddy on occasions.
The Specialized has front lock-off suspension and disc brakes. I like both bikes regards the riding position. I am thinking of the Specialized with the suspension as the cycle ways here in Milton Keynes can be very very bumpy and uneven. (Good idea when they built them, but they don't look after them!) I have narrowed it down to these two by talking to my local bike shops (not H******s by the way), and with all the choice available, it was driving me nuts looking at all the options.
My budget for the bike is £400 - £600 but would like to keep to £500 max if possible. Unless someone can give me a good reason to spend more!
Thanks in anticipation of advice.
