Which Bike To Buy Thread

Well it's time to get a new bicycle and I am stuck with figuring out what to buy. Looking in the $500-$750 dollar range. Probably a hybrid, but I also want to be able to do Duathlon's with it. Also it would have to capable of riding crusher dust trails. I was looking maybe at something with lock-out shocks and disc brakes. Bikes I have shown interest in are the Norco XFR3. All your help would be great.
Also feel free to post if you need your own help in buying a bike.

^doubt it.

I'd suggest posting in the football thread. Or maybe take it over to the music thread.

Take it to the hipster thread, they'll be flush with suggestions, as long as you're lookin for a fixie.

I looked for used one's for a while, then this one came on sale for $550 from regularly $630, and it was the bike I wanted so I couldn't resist. It's been working great, and I love it.

Maybe look into cyclo cross bikes. Wider wheels mean you can handle offroad, and if you put slicks on its a racing bike. www.bikesdirect.com/products/motobecane/fantom_cross_xi.htm

EDIT: Didn't see you already bought one! Maybe for your next bike, can never have too many.

In the end, all that matters is you enjoy the bike. Glad you're happy with your purchase!
