Who makes a reasonably priced steel road frameset similar to the Surly frames, but one that will accept a threaded Nitto style stem? I'm familiar with Soma and I'm sure I could find an older frame with some effort. Rivendell seems to be the answer but while lugged would be ideal I don't want to pay that much right now. The Surly LHT seems like the best bet but I can't get excited over those colors and I don't want threadless.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
