    Ok. I'll order the 5700.

    This is my second build. The first was a Kona HonkyTonk and I went with SRAM Rival. I'm still learning, but I really enjoy it.

    After reading the replies, I see that my original statement is incorrect. Perhaps it is designed for braze-ons to the seat stay, but not required. I see that there are seatpost clamps that have...

    I'd go with a metal post. Yeah, i've see a few comments on amazon about the swaying. That would be a deal-killer for me.

    Topeak Beam Rack

    I'm thinking of picking up a Surly Pacer as a part time commuter. I see that I can use 28mm tires with fenders, but there are no braze-ons on the seat stays for a rack. Therefore, I am considering...

    Kona

    I did finish my first build. It came out just how I wanted. The SRAM Rival does work great with the X7 shifters.

    My normal commute is a 4 mile ride to the bus, 18 miles on the express bus, then 2 miles to work here in Kansas City. We have a long way to go, but I see more and more bicycles on buses here.

    The Age 40+ Singlespeed & Fixed Gear Thread

    I commuted on a set of Gatorskins during the 2012-2013 winter. I did get a flat when the tire was pierced by a sharp rock. I guess any tire can get a flat.
