I'm trying to decide the two bikes. I tend to ride almost exclusively on road and hard pack trails. It seems like the Trek is more of a road bike, but the Crosstrail was awfully comfortable.
The questions would be is the Trek going to be faster?
Is the adjustable suspension on the Crosstrail a benefit for road riding? Ot would I be better off without the front shock?
Does anyone know the weight difference?
Also... On the Trek they have last years models for about $50 less. Are there any changes in the newer bikes that would warrant the extra $$$
Anything else I should be looking at in the $500 range?
