I currently have a Salsa Vaya as my primary road bike. As I have been upping my riding/miles and going beyond metric centuries, I have started thinking about getting something a little more nimble. The Vaya is a bit of a hog.
Anyhow, obviously steel and light don't necessarily go together, I figure there has to be lighter options. The ability to run 32mm or higher is also something I am looking at.
Not looking to break the bank. Looked at the usual suspects like the CrossCheck, but doubt it will ride much different than the Vaya and the Casseroll no longer seems in production. Not sure what else to look at.
