Actually, my choice was the rental Trek 6500. But your comment made me stop and think about the components on this bike and realize, they were not the components advertised by Trek. I don't think those downgrades would have seriously affected the bikes performance, but it just turned me off.
When your looking at a new bike, it's hard to see the flaws through the stars in your eyes. That's why I posted here. The responses caused me to focus.
