That's true, although it was more the seat (easily replaceable) and the slightly heavier weight of the Cdale that threw me off...but both are truly negligible. Even though the Trek has a shittier fork, it has a lot better breaks and the fork is replaceable, if I ever decide to change it / break it, and the fork can be replaced with that of any brand. With the Cdale however, you are left either with their proprietary forks, or left spending more money for an adapter.
