Opinions Wanted

I am looking to purchase my first bike and have narrowed it down to a Fuji Tread 1:5 or a Trek Domane AL 2. I have ridden both of them and though the Fuji was faster the Trek was more comfortable. I am looking to start ridding with friends who do log some miles in , mostly urban/ bike bath type routes. Any thoughts on what functionally is the best bike are welcomed!

If you're going to "log" mikes, comfort is best.

My LBS Sells Trek, Fuji Comes from an unknown to me shop..

I say pick the seller-Shop for service, then get a bike from them..

Domane will be more comfortable , for a road bike , because of the 'Isospeed' elastomer .

Same dealer or different dealers?

If different dealers, and you judge the bikes so equal that you have to ask us, I'd buy from whichever dealer you feel treated you better.
