Well, in my opinion, the opening post was just listing some characteristics of road bikes, and you stated which one you preferred. It didn't interest me as a topic, here in the Hybrids forum, so I...

Yeah, Marin Muirwoods would probably be your best bet in terms of a complete bike that you could buy off the shelf (that is, if you can find a Marin dealer). Lots of options for framesets that you...

I have a Coda Comp, not a Coda Sport, but I've found it to not be that heavy. I think that steel's reputation for being heavy is worse than reality, and I haven't had problems with climbing.
