Bikes: Too many. Cannondale SuperSix, Trek Remedy 8, Trek Crossrip+ get the most ride time.

Cpach, unless I'm reading it wrong, the Rocky Mountain has a triple, not the DaVinci. DaVinci, Specialized, and Trek all look like doubles to me. I don't know why you need a triple when you have 10 speed in the back, but whatever, that's preference.
Yeah you're right, my mistake. I also agree that triples are mostly not very useful with wide range 10sp cassettes. I only ever wish for one when my MTB is on asphalt, which isn't exactly my priority. Perhaps if I rode more rolling terrain--my normal ride profile is to climb a few thousand feet, then bomb down a few thousand feet, with only occasional grade reversals.
