    I have the same dilemma. 13 miles of boring highway or 15+ miles of hilly rural roads. I almost never take the same route twice in a week. I only take the highway when I'm in a rush or just plain...

    I just purchased a Surly Cross Check and love it. It's similar to the Pacer, but a littler beefier. You can run much larger tires too. I wouldn't call it fast though. I didn't buy it to be fast.
