If I was going for the lightest, fastest steel bike I could build, it would be the 33 and the S3 tubing. But for a bike that will carry a triple crank, a rear rack, wider tires and will see dirt roads, 853 or OX Platinum tubing would be perfect. And you get lugs :)
I just don't see an advantage in this application to offset the higher price. If money is no object, donate the difference to a local cycling advocacy group.
