Here is my new DeLorean. LOL! I mean Trek Crossrip LTD. I finally got to ride it a little bit today. First time I rode this exact model. Rode a std crossrip to get the fit right and then went for the one I had my heart set on. Really felt good. I upgraded the tires to Schwalbe Marathon Supremes.
I know a lot of folks are down on Trek but, this one ticked all of the boxes for me. I liked the long wheelbase as well as the disc brakes. I pushed the budget a bit to go ahead and get the 105 derailers/shifters. Its also the primary brand the LBS sells so, the service should be easier/better.
