    Trek 1.2
    1.2 - Trek Bicycle

    When you test rode them, which fit/ felt the best. Which did you like riding more.

    That's the "better" one.

    Other than that, the biggest difference in geo is that the Trek's head tube is a little taller, allowing for a slightly more upright position. But essentially, hardware-wise, the bikes are very similar.

    Shops matter as well, so place some weight on the better shop when deciding. They'll prove a valuable resource in a number of ways.
