Been working on a way to replicate the dynamics of the Fuji I built in a lighter frame ideal for distance without drop bars and using discs. Finally scored A Soma Double Cross DC in just the right size from a friend already outfitted with the majority of what I wanted. Hydrolic discs, 26-38-48 triple, and a 9 speed wide range cassette at the back. Came with dual purpose overkill wheels with Slx hubs. Rode it that way for a bit and decided that I'm not keen on 29 inch wheels much so I modded her with the tourer set of wheels from my mtb. Have to say I'm impressed at 13.3kg fully kitted out (garmin and all!) its not only the same geometry as the mtb but its also the lightest bike I own. Not bad for a steel frame.
