I’d get the Salsa: my local “Yoda” carries them, ( he picked Salsa over Surly) for his shop, they all ride nice, it has a “triple”, (saves butt on hills), the tall head tube would make it more comfortable especially on long rides, and I’ve always been impressed by the Salsas more than Surlys. I’m heavy too and I wouldn’t worry about it for either bike, ( now 230 was 258 raced at 162), check my profile for credibility. Lastly, I’ve been wanting a Vaya Ti ‘cause it could climb trees and would be super tough.
"Steel is Real" - good job by you !
