I'm with JHOLLNAGEL on this one, by the way. Make sure you check out a cyclocross frame. That was my first bike, and even though I now ride a carbon fiber road bike on the road, I wouldn't give up my cyclocross for the world. I use it on trails and to commute, and loan it to people who wan to the ride with me!

What kind of miles are you talking about riding in general? And what another on this thread said does matter. Your bikestore needs to be about helping you be a rider for a lifetime, not just to make a sale. People who will take a real interest in what you will use your bike for- where you'll ride- help get fitted properly, be willing to adjust your bike regularly without charge, these things matter in the long run as well as which bike you choose.

I am looking to buy a new bike. I want to use to to ride greenways, around town and a little on those rail to trail routes. I went looking this week-end and am planning on shopping some more this week-end. At the local bike shop they showed me two options - Fuji Absolute 3.0 or a Breezer Greenway. I checked them out on line and like the Fuji best so far. Just wondered if anyone has either of those or could recommend anything else.
