I am a runner by trade, but i have recently become interested in road biking through my friend who bought a bike to ride down the west coast. i went to my local bike store with the intent of test riding a trek 1000 or giant OCR3, but the salesman pushed me to the trek 7.5 FX, more of a flat bar road bike/hybrid. He told me that this would be a better entry level road bike due to its finer components than the trek 1000 or OCR3. I am rather skeptical. Is it better to start on an entry level road bike and either get a new bike or new components when I grow out of the entry level components, or would it be more safe to buy a bike like the 7.5 FX as a starter road bike and get a higher level road bike if i really start to love the sport? HELP!
