rode both and like them both. 5000 frame really dampens the small stuff on the rode but the ultegra on the 2200 shifts so nice. wheels are better on the 2200 also although that's a simple upgrade later on. any thoughts from thr forums on either of these two bikes?

I would go for the 2200 or maybe snag a 5200 with the 0 percent I think trek is offering right now. The 06 5000 has a frame made in Taiwan instead of the oclv 5200. Also the 2200 and 5200 both come with better equipe which woujld not be a cheap upgrade lateron. Just my 2 Cents.

Congrats! The reaosn I knew was because a week ago I was doing the same thing. And then the LBS called and said the 5200 oclv with full ultegra was 1900 with a double and still 0%, cuoldnt beat it.
