Nice Trek! My Kona is actually a MTB, but when I had my Alan Cross bike I did like the drop bar position...more for the fact that I mainly ride using the brake hoods.
A few cross riders use flat bars here in the UK, but it seems the majority prefer drop bars.
Angryhybrid, in response, Cross bikes are quite alot simular to Hybrids, but the geometry is slightly different, and gearing usually has two or one chainring at the front, and either 8 or 9 cogs at the back.
Cross bikes also tend to have more mud clearance for tires, and no waterbottle mounts.
Hope that helps
