After much time fighting with the old Spec'd Sirrus and in anticipation of a summer of joy here in cycling heaven, I want to treat myself to a new baby.
Tell me... is there a bike that has some of these specs?
1. Steel frame preferable. Though not a deal breaker.
2. Disk brakes very much want. Never had them before, but *hate* sand and am sick of rim brakes.
3. Internal hub much want. Never had one before, but *sick* of derailleur cleaning and maintenance.
Looking for street-hybrid Sirrus-style bike again.
Your thoughts pretty please?? I would guess that many would swear by discs, and some would recommend internal hub? Is there any manufacturer that makes something like this out of the box?
