- 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 5 years ago
In STW recommend what you’ve got style, may I recommend a Bob Jackson.Posted 5 years ago
(no connection with nerd btw, they are just lovely frames).
Salsa Vaya… Manages to be both practical and also a little bit special at the same timePosted 5 years ago
Clearly, you guys got the memo about photos of your steel bike requiring a body of water in the background.Posted 5 years ago
surly pacer, singular osprey, Hewitt all going on the list – along with Bob Jackson (sent you an email nerd).Posted 5 years ago
Just need to think more about sizes and face the reality that i may be getting too old for classic geometry…
Pacer certainly is a lovely looking bike – interested to know how any of you find the fit.Posted 5 years ago
The pretty short head tube makes it look like it feels a little racy?
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 5 years ago
OCB aren’t your 2 steel rides very similar?
The spa audax gets good write ups and I thought the singulars were being sold at a discount as they are no longer made. Maybe worth a call to SamPosted 5 years ago
I do love my Vaya, so would always advise on buying one..

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 5 years ago
