    Sorry for posting this subject twice, but thought it might be better in this sub-forum

    Hello,
    I am doing a 120 mile ride for charity around the lake district in a few months. I presently have a GT MTB for general weekend use, but even with slick tyres, it is still hard work and inefficient on long rides.

    Therefore I was going to buy a bike that would be more appropriate for this ride. I don't want an out-and-out racing bike, because I think it would be too uncomfortable to ride, and I know I wouldn't get any use out of it after the ride itself. So I came to the conclusion that a hybrid would be a good idea.....a more comfortable riding position, plus the flexibility for using it on towpaths and trails in the future.

    I don't have a big budget, so I thought second hand would give me the best cost/specification trade-off.

    For the record I am 6ft, 14 stone.

    So far I've come accross the Specialised Sirrus

    Anyone got any other suggestions

    Regards
    Steve.B
