I have a 2009 Rush and a 2009 Trek 4500. Both are size L and I realized the top tube on the Rush is almost two inches longer than the trek + it was a 120mm stem. I was just wondering if there was a specific reason this thing is so long.

I love the bike, but just noticed it seems to have a different kind of geometry in comparison to most "starter" bikes I have owned. It also seems longer than the Trek Fuels and other DS bikes of that nature.
