First off, make sure all are adjusted the same. Seat height should be high enough that your leg is straight with just your heel on the pedal at the bottom of the stroke. Then, pedalling with the ball of your foot, you will have the right bend of your leg at the bottom of the stroke.
Adjust handlebars so they are at a comfortable angle.
Make sure seats are "LEVEL", they can all be adjusted for fine tuning later. Seats are also the most changed things on any bikes, to find the one you like the best.
Things like Ergon Grips will help immeasurably with comfort, as will bar ends for more hand postions.
Hopefully, if you buy Trek, that dealer will apply that rental to the purchase price.
