If your LBS sells Treks and you like the bikes and customer care then stick with a Trek. I have an FX but mainly ride on the road. The DS is a popular choice.

Nice bikes! An update on my dilemma, I used a 15-28 cassette and the short cage Superbre Pro RD was able to handle the 28t cog. 42/28 enough? Not sure for the hills I climb but I'll give it a try.
