I know I am new to the forum and feel like I should prove myself to everyone here but I am new to cycling(one year) and kind of have an emergency decision to make.
Long story short, I am marrying my girlfriend of 6 years and in order for me to afford the cost, I am forced to sell my current car and might have to bike all year long through 2015.
Here are the bikes I am considering; All City Macho Man Disc, Surly Straggler, and Soma Double Cross Disc(complete). They're all great bikes from what I've seen/heard on my research but at this point which bike would be the best bang for your buck? FYI I will also attach a rear rack and I am aware that the Macho Man Disc does not have a braze on but a Salsa Post-Lock will solve my problem since I will packing very light.
