Buying my 1st Hybrid Bike this weekend, advice needed
#1
Question 
I’ve just sold my 13 year old Carrera Virtuoso road bike, it’s served me well and now I really fancy a hybrid bike as my new work commute has tough terrain with gravel paths etc…
I only cycle around 8 miles a day

I am buying 1 of these 3 “used” bikes below but can’t decide…they are all size XL

they are all going for around the same price and are in Mint Condition 😊

What would you think would be the nicer ride for speed, comfort and reliability ?

I have attached pics of the exact used bikes I’m going to look at this weekend

I’m 6ft 3” tall and weigh around 14.5 stone

Hello @WaynesterUK!
We received a reply from our member Carol via Facebook:

"I'd favor the Trek. If the prices are close and they have your size the FX3 is probably slightly better spec, but make sure you get a bike that fits."
