I am looking for a new ''performance hydrid bike'' mostly for urban traveling. I looked at most of the major brands available in Canada in accordance with my budget ($1500). My #1 choice right now is a Giant FCR 1. It as a composite fork and stay. This bike is among the lightest I have seen in this category. It as XERO XSR-2 rims and hubs, TRUVATIV Elita crank and a SRAM X9 shifter and dérailleur.
Do you think this bike is a good choice? I specialy do not know much about the SRAM X9 dérailleur. This dérailleur seem to made for mountain bike.... Is it a goog choice for a road bike?
I would apreciate your comments.
