I seriously considered the XM700 but according to Trek's sizing chart the large would not even come close to fitting me at 6'5" and they do not offer an XL. It was hard for me to change brands. I was very loyal to Trek, but 2G's difference, well,... I guess my loyalty has a price.Sounds a lot like an xm700+. Very strong headlight, fenders, Bosch Performance Speed motor... retail (at least last spring) $3499. I offered the bike shop $3000 even and they took it for a brand new one. Stole a rack and taillight off one of my other bikes, and 5200 miles later still going strong. Threw some panniers on it and did the whole Erie Canal trip last fall as well. It’s a terrific bike which for some reason gets overlooked a lot.
