I'd get the Spesh (or something similar) and, if/when the n+1 urge strikes, you can go for a straight road bike. And you might be ready to spend a bit more on it than the $1200 you're prepared to pay now.

Can you elaborate what you mean by the trek not knowing whether it's a racer or commuter. Is it the shorter wheelbase and clearances but with a higher riding position (shorter head tube length)?
