2017 Giant Toughroad SLR1

I would like to purchase a comfortable yet sturdy & tough alround urban bike which can take a beating (potholes) and which I can commute to work 2-3 times per week - round trip 20 km. I will be riding it off road trails occassionally but most of the riding will be in the city on bumpy paved roads. I've come across a used 2017 Giant Toughroad SLR1 selling for $800 cdn on Kijiji. I like the style of the bike and it seems like it can be ridden anywhere with ease. I don't really need the front racks yet I'll probably remove them.

Is anyone familiar with this model? Does anyone currently ride one?

If so, would anyone recommend it as a city commuter with the occassional off road hard packed trail?

Any other suggestions as a daily rider would be appreciated.

I also like the 2018 Cannondale Bad Boy but it's a lot more expensive.

The bike is good. But does it fit? This is more important than component specifics or frame materials or what tires come on the bike. Pretty much anything can be changed on any bike, except if the fit is too far off.
