    Sun UNO

    Hi. New Here. Browsing, browsing.

    Went by my LBS, talking with 'Mike' about getting new frames, riding old school peugot conversion with janky parts right now, lusting after something new.

    I was informed that the SUN UNO has the same frame as the surly model. It is Priced in the 500 range, possibly cheaper. Waiting on the order numbers.

    Any opinions about the parts?

    The hubs are good, rims aren't so great.
    Crankset isn't specified...they look kind of like the entry-level Truvativ...so probably okay, nothing fancy.
    Am I missing the specs for the rest of the bike, or are they not there?

    the frame is not the same as a surly model. they might have the same dropouts, but they aren't the same with respect to geometry.
