Hi everyone. I want a cross cycle for mostly, touring, road, and some packed trail (in parks) riding. I am asking it to do it all, aren't I. I am concerned about the fact that I have some steep hills on the roads I ride so this is a consideration. I would like opinions on the pros and cons of the Salsa Vaya(with disc brakes) to the Surly Crosscheck. Both are steel frames. Vaya seems to have better stock components? I think the disc brakes may be desirable considering that the Vaya still has fender and rack mounts so you aren't giving anything up. What do you think of each of these bikes for distance riding and pavement hills?
