I don't know what counts as "late model". I've got about 12,000 miles on my 2010 2.1, with 105. It has been a great bike for me. I guess your experience will depend on what kind of riding you do. I am chiefly an A/B club rider and the Trek 2.1 works well for me with a semi-aggressive riding position. I hated the Trek saddle and immediately swapped it out for a Fizik that suited me better. Also, I eventually upgraded the Bontrager SSR wheels, which were pretty heavy.

I have a newer nicer carbon bike with a more aggressive geometry that I ride when the weather is good and when I want to ride fast, but I still like to ride the Trek.
