Full Columbus Tubing for Touring Bike Build
Hey everyone. There's a local shop doing custom builds that I'd like to support (while getting my fix, of course). I'd like to have them build me a lugged touring frame. They can get any Columbus tubing (mix and match if needed), but it must be Columbus. I'm not excessively heavy (about 180lbs), but I do like to stand up and mash sometimes, even when loaded. I only care about ride quality, and durability. I don't care about weight.
The shop has suggested Spirit for Lugs (OS), but I'm not convinced it will be stiff/durable enough for a serious touring machine. That being said, I've never ridden the stuff. If it was your bike, what would you go for? Thanks!
