I mostly recommend the bowery because of the low-key paint job, but the Trek 520 is just as good in that respect, and it does have gears. The thing about most road bikes from major companies is that they have really bright & eye-catching colors, which is cool for fitness and competition, but can you imagine a Discovery Channel Madone locked up to a stop sign outside, or on a bike rack with the Huffy-Murrays? If you can keep your bike in the same room that you work in at all times, then the Giant OCR would be a great bike & value, otherwise it might be hard to find an appropriate road bike that isn't all about gaudiness. Look into Trek's Portland, too.
