At 38mm the tires might be too narrow but you should be able to have the LBS swap those out for you before walking out the door with the bike.
I initially considered the Roam 2 , equivalent to the Trek DS. I asked the LBS for some bigger tires on the Roam, and they didn't have some in stock. I should try with another LBS. The Roam 2017 has 700 x 38c , the rim is 19mm so I think I should be able to go up 45mm.
