I'm between Trek Roscoe 8 or Specialized Fuse Comp. Both bikes msrp are similar.
Any thoughts or recommendations ???
Appreciate your help.

Go with Trek, I also would suggest Salsa Timberjack, shorter rear end and you can go 29 or 27.5+. I got the TJ over both and was super happy.

The bike must fit you, me having long legs = one is better, try using them 90 min to find the one that is confortable.
If equal choose the shop you have confidence with.

It really wasn't about components for me as it was about fit, the Fuse just didn't feel right at all (again imo). I am in no way a "big S hater" they make great bikes but for me it's Trek. And I have always been a high end custom boutique bike snob. Long long list of bikes. You really just need to ride both and one of them should just speak to you over all. Good luck.

As mentioned before, fit and feel are key. Everything else can be upgraded as you go. I would also add the Rocky Mountain Growler to your list (and maybe Cannondale Cujo). I'm currently bike shopping and comparing similar bikes. The mid-tier Growler has a better fork than the Trek or Fuse. You also have the option of jumping to the top-tier and getting the RS Revelation. https://99spokes.com/compare?bikes=...p-27.5plus-2019,rockymountain-growler-40-2019

Here's my purchase. Delivered today to my LBS.... TREK FUEL EX 8 Plus.
27.5 plus tires. Fox 34 suspension, SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain. I'm very happy with it !!!
