So I bought the Trek Pure and am having a blast. I couldn't ride it Friday (rained all day and night) and Saturday was the same. Rode on Sunday by my face and ears were numb in ten minutes.
But today was 60 and sunny, calm wind, and I really had a great time. Such a comfortable bike. I'm going to start commuting, at the minimum, next week.
I tried to talk my wife into getting one, and she said, "the Schwinn in the garage is fine for me," and then she tried my bike out, and was immediately floored with the comfort.
So tomorrow we get another one...this time in women's version.
