- What comfortable steel road/audax/light tourer frameset
I’m a big fan of steel bikes … In fact I’m now an all steel stable.
I’ll +1 for the equilibrium… And just because I’m selling mine (gratuitous plug … It’s in the classifieds, your size too) fantastic bike, just not as nice as my enigma ethos.
The enigma is wonderful, but probably over budget.
Singular do make great bikes for a sensible price and the osprey looks beautiful. I’ve got a swift and love it to bits.
The surly pacer is super practical, tough and rides well. Have a look at Sumo frames too… Very like singular, but from across the pond. Lovely bikes, good prices, well thought out and they look pretty too.Posted 4 years agonordofjuraMember
Well, compared to the toptube, the headtube is rather short. Or at least shorter than you expect it after you’ve read Surlys pacer-promo. That’s probably why most of the pacers I’ve seen are equipped with an upwards facing stem and some spacers. But then it’s more versatile. You can built it racey or make it a touring bike or whatever you like. Mine is certainly comfortable like that.Posted 4 years agobrassneckSubscriber
Linksey Sportive. I know it’s not steel but I’ve seen a couple and they look perfect for what you describe. Disc version with shimano 685 if they do triple left shifter or Spyres and 105/touring gearing would be
If that’s in budget, you owe it to yourself to look at a Tripster.Posted 4 years ago
