    Question Kona vs. Trek vs. Raleigh

    I am looking to buy a new hybrid bike, but im on a budjet, im in the 500-750 range right now and have found three bikes i like that appear to have good components for the price. the first is the Kona dew plus, which i like but it appears to lean more towards the road bike side of hybrids. I also like the Trek DS 8.4 and the raleigh misceo 2.0. i havent heard much about raleighs but am still interested. do you have any reccomondation among these three bikes? which one is the best quality for its price?

    I looked at all of those except the Kona. I eventually bought a Giant Escape 2 for the kid. The LBS carried Giant and Raleigh as his main brands. The Misceo is very nice. But they skimp on the parts to give you a fork and come in at a price point. Giant doesn't put suspension on their Escape Series. So, they upgrade the components but do use a CF fork on the top model. Good luck

    Plus a host of old bikes too many to list.

    I have looked at that bike, but I want disc brakes and did not see any escapes with them.
