Down to 4 bikes to choose from, help pls!
My Claud Butler Stone River got nicked recently (ingenieous theif(s) unscrewed the brackets of a drainpipe my bike was chained to and slid the bike of), though it was not a really specialized bike i got fond of it and was sorely tempted to get the same.
I have instead got a list of four bikes that fit my budget, i would like to hear your thoughts on them and maybe some more reccomendations, i ride mainly road to work, occasionaly going off road to work, and once a while x-country trails.
Thanks in advance.
Trek 4900 or 4500 (4900 only if i can push my budget).

PS I would prefer a bike thet does not require me to tinker with alot, as i am bound my space/time and girlfriend requiring attention constraints.
