    any of the Trek ISOSpeed bikes, like the Domane and the Checkpoint
    Dr. Cox: Lady, people aren't chocolates. Do you know what they are mostly? Bastards. Bastard-coated bastards with bastard fillings. But I don't find them half as annoying as I find naive bubble-headed optimists who walk around vomiting sunshine.

    Voting isn't marriage - it's public transport. You are not waiting for "The One" who is absolutely perfect. You are getting on the bus, and if there isn't one going exactly to your destination you don't stay at home and sulk - you take the one going closest to where you want to be!

    Do your homework on the BMC MTT. I had an Alpenchallenge AMP commuter for a few months, and the shock on that thing was a complete nightmare. The documented service interval for the bushings was something like 20 hours of riding, and that wasn't even enough to keep it functioning properly. To make matters worse, the dealer couldn't source parts for it - and the manuals they were using had thew wrong part numbers. That bike ended up being replaced under warranty for a different bike (not the same model - as they had no inventory). This was a couple of years ago, so hopefully they've improved.

    Trek Domane on the otherhad has worked well for me. I haven't had it for long, but I do find the rear compliance excellent on long rides. I have no idea what the service intervals and reliability will be with it, but so far so good.
