I have a Genesis Day One Alfine that I don’t ride much mainly cos it all feels a bit dead. It’s 725 gas pipe and not especially light.
I was mulling over the potential benefits of getting something in 853, mebbies a Stoater or suchlike. Happy to buy off the peg/mainstream rather than a nichey Shand but I want something reasonably light with a really lively ride preferably with a road bias and touring potential (braze ons etc). Key for me is weight and ride quality tho.
Anybody got any ideas/recommendations for an 853 based frame, disks and IGH capable (so eccentric or horizontal drop outs) please?
