The Result

Finally My search is over..

I had to decide between the merida Sub 5 and Sub 10 and the Trek 3700.

I bought the Trek 3700..

I am not bike expoert so cant talk too much about what why and what did i really see and buy it.. But I tried the Sub 10 and the 3700 and me and my wife just liked the 3700..

It just felt better when riding it..
So finally its in my home now..All ready to start with me early in the morning.....
