I am in the process of getting a new Fitness bike as my entry level road bike (Trek Domane AL2) was not for me. I wasn't comfortable in the road bike position even after adjustments and do not like drop bars. I am fairly flexible though and can bend and touch my toes. I am a 52 year old male, 5' 4" and 147lbs in fairly decent shape. I would like to ride 20-25 miles on mostly paved trails and still go at a decent speed but just do it a little more comfortable that is why I think an aggressive hybrid with a flat bar is more my style. My budget is sub $1000. Does anyone have an opinion of these two bikes based on my riding style?
Thanks!!

You may find that you can modify the Trek for your use. Replacement of handlebar and/or stem might be enough to provide you with a more comfortable posture. Certainly cheaper than a new bike. Many bar styles to choose from that wI'll provide different riding positions. I know nothing about the bikes you are intending on testing.
