Through my employeer, I have the ability to get either a Trek 2100 or Pilot 2.1 for the cost of tax as it is part of a larger benefit program, basically a rewards program. I have earned enough awards points to get a bike. Now the issues. I have taken both bikes out for extended rides, at least 15 miles and both gave me a great ride. Light, quick, great handling and very comfortable. Both have comparable components and the the only true difference is the fork on the 2100 says Bontrager Approved and the geometry of the Pilot is relaxed.
All that being said, I am having a heck of a time making up my mind which direction to go. Do I go with the 2100 and flip the stem and get a more upright riding position or go with the Pilot which is already designed for that? Going with the 2100 gives me the option to revert if I want, but looking for info for anyone that was in the same situation.
