I am wanting to get my first bike. Looking at different hybrid bikes under $400. I am wanting it for city riding but also light trail riding which is why I am mostly interested in hybrid. I am 6 foot 5, so something good for tall guys! Thanks!

Suggestions so far:
Trek FX 1, Trek FX, Giant Escape 3, Fuji Absolute 2.1 and 2.3, Raleigh Cadent 2 or 1.

getting the right fit is really important but since we're not there to see how each bike fits this opinion of which bike is the best is based on components etc.

I would reject the bikes with the Shimano Tourney components, that stuff is pure ****. Hmmm, well that only leaves one bike, the Fuji Absolute 2.1 with the Shimano Altus components.
