- Sub 2000gm for the frame and fork
- Ability to take 40mm tires
- More stable/less race oriented geometry
- Relatively taller head-tube
Basically, I want a long-ride bike that I can use for long, moderately-fast rides on tarmac and also take onto gravel and graded roads. Dont want a race-oriented frame but something that puts me in a more upright position.
